Meet World Champion and Olympian Snowsports Coach, Kristi Richards from KR Academy

The exciting thing about this program is that the curriculum and the timetables will be built to support both athletics and academics and it will feel like one integrated system so that way you are going to get a lot of contact hours, both in school and up at the hill, so it will be very exciting.

If this existed when I was an athlete going through the ranks, it would have changed my world.
