The Bode Miller Ski Academy was announced last December, and was poised to be a state-of-the-art facility for Nordic, alpine, and freestyle athletes to hone their skills.
Bode did not specifically say why they were terminating the plans at Granby Ranch, but alluded to interest from other ski resorts as potential hosts. He said:
“Over the past few years, we have been contacted by multiple mountain communities and resorts interested in the Academy concept, but really saw Granby Ranch as a great location for our first academy. We have already shifted our focus to these other locations.”
The Bode Miller Ski Academy at Granby Ranch seemed like a decent idea, but I’ll admit that I was skeptical of the location.
I don’t mean to shame Granby, but surely there are larger mountains with more consistent snowfall for Bode to build his world-class ski academy.
Oh well. Here’s hoping Bode can open his super fancy ski academy somewhere else. I want to be able to at least dream that I could someday send my unborn children to a ski academy owned and operated by Bode.
That would be cool.
