The core of the Williams Ski Program is the belief that the twin concepts of team and ownership will allow Ski Team members to grow as athletes and as people. The team trains primarily at Jiminy Peak - just twenty minutes from campus. The mountain has a high speed six pack chairlift, demanding terrain and a great relationship with the program. This has been one of our biggest assets. We also train at Berkshire East to add variety for the athletes. Forty minutes away, this mountain provides terrain to work on gliding and a more gradual touch on the edges. Williams has a strong track record of helping athletes improve throughout their college career.
