Another SUCCESSFUL GMVS Camp in Vermont
We are now back in the Midwest with just have spent an amazing 8 days at the 2019 GMVS Summer Camp. This year 6 amazing athletes from Wisconsin & Minnesota join us for the GMVS camp. Athletes from 9 states, many who took top three placements at the 2019 Junior Nationals, along with athletes headed to the Youth Olympic Games & More. Coaching staff was comprised of a great core group of 6 representing Eastern Ski Academies, NCAA Programs along with Elite & Junior Programs. Also joining us were three former GMVS athletes now skiing for Harvard, Bowdoin & Dartmouth.
