“I have never heard of another school that lets you tune skis or boards for class, much less create a ski or snowboard with your own graphics on it. The location of Colorado Mountain College’s campus, my program leader, as well as the students I attended with, made my experience at CMC worthwhile.”
Eric Hockman is an assistant manager for a ski and snowboard tuning shop in Keystone, Colorado.
