Alpine Skiing

Skiing 2013-11-15

Winter is a very special season at Deerfield Academy. The buildings are cloaked with snow and ice. Many students view the snow and January winds as elements to be borne, but Deerfield alpine skiers regard them as harbingers of a great ski season.

The boy and girl skiers travel and practice together at Berkshire East, a family resort 40 minutes west on the Mohawk Trail (Rt. 2). The mountain itself is short and steep–perfect for training slalom and giant slalom. In the past decade our girls and boys squad have captured the league title (MISL) nine times. In addition to these accomplishments both teams have also won the NEPSAC Alpine Ski Championship for the recent past (2011, 2012, 2014), and hope to defend the title in the years to come.

Deerfield's ski program can accommodate any level of talent. The course and the competition will challenge even the most talented skiers. For skiers with less experience, we have both a JV and a recreational program. These programs are noted for their instructional value, success, and fun-loving spirit.

Alpine skiing is coached by Marc Dancer and Bill Chaffee.
