What are Snow Pro Jam and Master’s Academy?
Snow Pro Jam and Master’s Academy is the gathering spot for nearly 500 snowsports instructors, sponsors and guests from all over the East Coast. Each day offers great skiing, riding, coaching and après ski activities along with the opportunity to network with other snowsports enthusiasts. The Sponsor Showcase will be on Tuesday, Wednesday we will offer afternoon optional sessions, Thursday all attendees are invited to the Banquet, and we’ll wrap it up on Friday with another full day of fantastic skiing and riding with the best coaches in the country! There are groups for those who want to gear up for the season, groups for those who want to explore the challenges that the mountain offers, and groups for people who want to begin preparing for exams. Regardless of which type of group you choose, you can expect to have a great time.
Indoor activities will be determined at a later date when we know what is allowed.
