Each session begins in the Mansfield base lodge with weekend groups heading to the lift at 8:30 and weekdays at 9:00am and 12:30pm. We typically begin with a highly structured session while conditions and athletes are fresh.
To participate in GMA programs/camps all athletes must:
have current USSA membership.

We provide fundamental competition based training and support for all snowboard and freeski disciplines. Competing in USASA, USSA, IFSA, STEFT, and other events is not mandatory but highly encouraged. The common mission of these organizations is to facilitate fun and fair events for all ages across the country, to attract snowboarders and freeskiers, promote their development, provide member education, influence the future of our sports, and serve as qualifiers for national and international competition. There are many lessons to teach an athlete before, during, and after a competition day. These experiences build charachter and help prepare athletes for the future wherever they may go. We will ask everyone to try one event.
