Cardigan Mountain School Skiing

Under the direction of former Olympian and U.S. Ski Team member Julia Ford, Cardigan's ski program provides the focused training environment of a ski academy while remaining dedicated to academic enrichment, character development, and athletic growth through participation in other sports during the fall and spring.

Cardigan Mountain School is an independent boarding and day school for boys in grades 6 through 9. Our teachers and coaches understand and appreciate boys at this great age and stage of development. We’ve created an environment designed to nurture not only their academic achievement, but also their physical, social, ethical, and personal growth.
