Olympian Bode Miller announces ski academy at Granby Ranch

Granby Ranch will be the future home of an innovative ski academy dreamt up by the most decorated male Alpine skier in the country.

Announced Friday, the Bode Miller Ski Academy is a vision of the Olympic gold medalist and World Cup champion in partnership with his friend and business partner Andy Wirth, who’s part of the management team at Granby Ranch.

While their vision started in Montana — where there will hopefully one day also be a Bode Miller Ski Academy — the Granby Ranch location is quickly moving from an idea to a reality. Both Miller and Wirth saw the values of a ski academy prioritizing academics and athletic development, including for those who may not be able to afford it.

There are two principles at the core of the Bode Miller Ski Academy: the best academics and athletic programs paired with providing the same type of opportunities for young athletes from all backgrounds.

This ski academy will also be at the forefront of athletic development. Miller explained that while his time at Carrabassett was invaluable, he felt that the model of most traditional ski academies aren’t flexible enough to evolve with the ever-changing landscape of competitive skiing.
