  • Racer Ready?

    Our comprehensive Alpine Program has a highly qualified, full-time coaching team that allows athletes to compete in a variety of schedules—from state USSA races to international FIS events. Alpine skiers are members of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) and compete at the U19, U16, and U14 levels.

    Our Alpine Program prepares student-athletes to compete at the highest levels in each age group. We strike a balance of technical skills between free skiing and gate training at Sunday River Resort while offering the best opportunity for student-athletes to reach their potential.

  • Head Alpine Coaches


PARKER GRAY ’97

Head Coach Parker Gray ’97 leads the Mens’ Alpine Program. Gray is a native of Newry, Maine, and spent three years with the U.S. Men’s Olympic and World Cup teams, serving as an Assistant and Strength Coach.

While Head Coach at KMS, Gray was named Vermont Coach of the Year. As an athlete, Gray was a two-time Junior Olympic Downhill Champion, SG Champion, and overall winner. He is also a member of the Gould Athletic Hall of Fame (2018).

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time coaching the Men’s World Cup team. The experience of working with highly driven athletes and staff opened my eyes to the reality of what a highly motivated group can achieve. I hope to build on that experience at Gould and help our athletes achieve success.”
