Wilmington, VT (PRWEB) December 08, 2014
The Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain, a full-service private ski club in Southern Vermont’s Deerfield Valley, announced today that it has been selected by the United States Ski and Snowboard Association, the national governing body of the United States Olympic skiing and snowboarding teams, to participate in their club certification process.
The USSA ski club certification program places the Hermitage Club into a select company of the top ski and snowboard clubs around the United States, a significant achievement for a private ski club going into its second year of operations. The USSA club certification program was developed to facilitate participation in national and international competition; the Olympic sports organization provides structure for competitive skiing and snowboarding. From grassroots programs to governance of sport, management of rules, competitions and athletic rankings, the USSA oversees athletic pipelines for development in the sports.
According to James Lazor, Director of Snowsports and Alpine Racing at the Hermitage Club, “We are honored to be selected for the second group of clubs to go thru the certification process. Our target of bronze is due to the fact that we are a ‘new’ club with brand new programs. In our group this season are clubs such as: Aspen Valley Ski, Snowboard and Sugar Bowl Academy to name a few.”
