Cross-Country Post Grad [Ages 18 & Over]
This program is designed for extremely motivated athletes taking time off between high school and college to pursue competitive cross country skiing at the highest level. Athletes have up to two years to train and compete before they begin to impact their NCAA eligibility. Skiers in the Post Grad program will have the opportunity to further their education by taking classes at Colorado Mountain College (CMC) and/or to find employment in Steamboat. A “part-time” course load can be taken at CMC with no impact on NCAA eligibility.
