Mountain schooling returns

The secret to success is actually not a secret at all.

The secret to success is actually not a secret at all. High achievers, whether they are athletes, musicians, artists, or scholars all have one thing in common: practice.

Some parents of aspiring skiers have figured this out and enrolled their children in the Podium of Life Ski Academy.

Many of these skiers are aiming for the podium in ski racing or freestyle skiing, and now that they go to school on Mount Washington they can train every day. Others have enrolled in the program to experience an alternate form of education in a class with low student / teacher ratio.

Today, Podium of Life ski academy has partnered with the Campbell River Gymnastics club to have some dry-land training. Podium of Life Ski Academy is dedicated to helping youth reach superior levels in academics, skiing, and leadership. Mainstream Biological Consulting, which is also focused on excellence, has sponsored Podium of Life.

With enrolment up from last year and the forecast for a full year of snow, the Harles, who founded the academy last year, are excited to get under way. Visit www.podiumoflife.com for more information.
