Rowmark One of First Designated for USSA Gold Certification

The US Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) announced the formation of its first-ever national program to certify the approximately 400 ski and snowboard clubs across the nation. Rowmark Ski Academy is the only club in Utah and one of only two in the Mountain West to receive the USSA's highest Gold Certified level* at this time. The certification reflects an international movement to verify ski and snowboard clubs. The new USSA Club Development Manager Brian Krill introduced the rigorous certification program at a gathering of the USSA Congress in Park City, Utah. The certification process involves a rigorous self-study and peer review of best principles and practices for ski and snowboard clubs. Each club had an on-site visit and review conducted by USSA high performance staff and other leaders in the ski and snowboard club world. Ski Racing and SkiTrax magazines report the USSA certification as mostly for “the big guns of ski racer development in the US.”

*Gold-certified club: This level of certification is intended for clubs that are best in the world. These clubs serve as a model both organizationally and athletically, and are resources to the sport as a whole in the US.

Gold-Certified Clubs

  • Burke Mountain Academy (East Burke, VT)
  • Killington Mountain School (Killington, VT)
  • New York Ski Education Foundation (Wilmington, NY)
  • Stratton Mountain School (Stratton, VT)
