25 years ago Okemo Mountain School (OMS) opened for its first season, a dream become reality thanks to the hard work of Wendy Neal, Bruce Schmidt, The Mueller family, and many others. For those of you who are not familiar with Okemo Mountain School (OMS), it is the local ski and snowboard academy in Ludlow. OMS is dedicated to giving committed athletes the opportunity to follow a rigorous academic curriculum while training full time in the snow sport of their choice.
When OMS first began operation in 1991 there were only four alpine ski racing student-athletes. However, the student body grew exponentially over the first few years and today OMS serves 50+ student-athletes in 3 snow sports disciplines: alpine ski racing, snowboarding, and freestyle/freeride skiing. Furthermore, OMS believes the best on-snow training should be matched in the classroom. At OMS experienced educators work with motivated student-athletes in small teacher-student ratios to bring out their best academically. OMS is proud of its graduates and the prestigious colleges to which they have matriculated, including most recently Clarkson, Colby-Sawyer, Colgate, Cornell, Northwestern, Notre Dame, and UVM.
