Now is an excellent time to go to UVM. The campus isn't under construction for the first time in like 15 years (at least it won't be next year)and academics are on the rise (in 20 years your degree will likely look twice as good as it does today).
Plus someday you'll be in the super cool UVM alumni club with me... haha
no hate on uvm at at all but if you wanna get the most skiing time and major in ski resort/snow sport management Lyndon State is where it is at. 5 mile drive to the mountain. small school yes but it is so much fun. i love that place. we party hard and ski harder. but cant lie, when it comes to school uvm has better academics except for our MTN Rec/Ski Resort programs and Meteorology which is 2nd in the country. either way enjoy VT!
I've had mostly A's but also a bunch of B's throughout hs (not anymore haha), I think about 3.5-3.6, can't remember, but people get in with way less. I know people get in with way less. There was a kid from my school that got in with significantly less than a 3.0, maybe even less than a 2.5, can't remember.

For those of you coming to UVM but aren't into competing, don't feel like FST is the only option to have a great skiing experience during your time here.
There are opportunities to meet people who will be driving to all of the mountains in the area so you'll still be able to get to the mountain 3-5days a week. Just need to be a lil outgoing and throw down some gas money.

you can be any level of ability to be on FST. they pay for all your comp fees, and you get a stowe pass, coaching, tramps, water ramps, and more. its like 550 but definitely worth it. I totally recommened during the team if you ski. And the parties are legit. also if your on the team upperclassmen have houses and sometimes throw down. get to know us!
cfergs got some legit answers. Im an officer on FST and its all about you wanting to progress your skiing while also having an awesome time shredding with a dope group of kids. Stowe pass is included in team dues, along with the other things mentioned by cferg that make your ski experience dope.

My family, my friends, and skiing... thats it for me, thats my life. The joy i get from skiing, thats worth dying for.
UVM is a chill spot for sure, lot of cool kids, easy to meet people, and yea UVMFST is also dope and on the rise, i joined this past season and had no regrets, not big into the comps or USASA but all the kids on the team are chill and its a fun crew to lap with, def made the right choice coming here, pm me with any questions!

I am personally a Bush fan. Skied Stowe freshman year, wasn't feeling the vibe so I got a Bush pass last year and haven't looked back. Check out all your options, there is a good group of people that ski at every mountain.
