      Local Stratton Mountain School senior, Caroline Claire (Manchester Center, VT), has been named to the U.S. Olympic Freeski Team for Slopestyle. She will travel to PyeongChang this February for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. Caroline’s 3rd place finish in the recent Mammoth Slopestyle World Cup, which was an Olympic qualifier event, helped secure her spot on the team. U.S. Ski and Snowboard announced the team selections on Tuesday.

      “We are so proud of Caroline for having been named to the Olympic Freeski Team. Her skiing has progressed tremendously during her time at Stratton Mountain School, and she has worked hard to get where she is today. To have the honor of representing her country on the world’s largest stage is well deserved,” stated Stratton Mountain School Freeskiing Program Director, Jesse Mallis.

      Caroline is one of four women selected to represent the United States in the Women’s Slopestyle competition at the Olympics next month. She qualified for the team through a series of events beginning last February and concluding this past weekend in Mammoth, California.

      Stratton Mountain School’s history includes forty-two Olympians and sixty-six Olympic Team placements in Alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, and Snowboarding. Caroline will be the first Freeskier from the school to compete at the Olympic level and the first Stratton Mountain School student to represent the United States at the Olympics while enrolled in the school.

      “We are pleased to have Caroline representing the United States and Stratton Mountain School at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. The entire SMScommunity is excited for Caroline, as she has earned the opportunity to compete at the highest level of her sport,” stated SMS Headmaster, Chris Kaltsas.

      Stratton Mountain School is an independent boarding and day school that focuses on college preparatory academics and competitive winter sports. Located at the base of Stratton Mountain, SMS is accredited by NEASC, is a member of NAIS, and is an official U.S. Ski & Snowboard Development Site.




      Food Recovery and Recycling Practices Recognized

      STRATTON MOUNTAIN, VT – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recently issued two certificates of achievement to Stratton Mountain, one for the resort’s composting initiative and another for comprehensive recycling programs.
      “Thanks to your participation and results, EPA New England Food Recovery Challenge participants diverted over 56,000 tons of food to donation or composting in 2016,” reports Deborah Szaro, regional EPA administrator. Stratton has diverted 50 tons since 2014 when the composting program for cafeterias, restaurants and events began.

      “We have incorporated single stream recycling throughout the resort and when composting became available we seized the opportunity to further reduce waste,” explained Stratton Environment and Safety Manager Jeffrey Cavagnino. In addition, Stratton was among the first resorts to offer reusable cutlery and dishes in its cafeteria.

      Stratton is also the only organization in Vermont to be recognized as an EPA WasteWise partner; together the New England partners prevented and diverted more than 242,000 tons of waste that would otherwise have been disposed of in landfills or incinerators.
      “For 23 years, EPA’s WasteWise program has helped organizations and businesses apply sustainable materials management practices to prevent and reduce municipal and industrial waste,” said Szaro in announcing the second certificate for Stratton.

      “The environment is our No. 1 asset,” explained Cavagnino. Stratton has been recognized with numerous national and state environmental awards, beginning in the early 1990s when the resort invested $100,000 in a radio telemetry study of Vermont’s black bear. The research provided valuable data for land use planning throughout the state and resulted in Stratton’s permanent preservation of 1,500 acres of prime habitat now held in conservation easements.

      Stratton’s unique habitat protection program earned the resort a Golden Eagle and three Vermont environmental awards, including the Vermont Governor’s Award for Environmental Excellence and the Vermont Department of Fish & Wildlife Commissioner's Landowner Appreciation Award, the first time a corporation was recognized with this award.
