Redefining the PG Ski Experience

Proctor's GAP FIS Program seeks to provide training and support at the highest level to post graduate/gap year alpine athletes with the goals of skiing at the NCAA Division 1 or national team level.

The program's focus during the prep periods and in-season is on athlete development through journal entries, wellbeing, nutrition, physical conditioning and recovery, sleep, and hydration. We take a science based approach for all of our technical and skill acquisition as well as physical training, maintenance, and recovery that is always actionable and measurable.

By seeking to control all variables, and live by the idea that either it all matters or nothing matters, the Proctor FIS Gap Program has hired a full time world cup service man/technician who will help with tuning for all athletes on and off the hill.The program is intensely focused on equipment selection and function which is the basis of proper ski skills. The coaching staff has over 50 years combined experience nationally and internationally from development FIS, to collegiate skiing, all the way to Nor-Am and World Cup. Each athlete averages 40 technical race starts per season, while the coach to athlete ratio allows coverage of all levels of competition and athlete participation in multiple series at any given time.
