PV Alpine is family run by Ryan & Alexandra Shorter.

PVA was founded in 1996 by a group of High School and College aged FIS racers from Michigan who knew that there was more to the sport of ski racing than what they had been taught. They did away with coaches and bought their own gates, drills, and wrenches and began fumbling through the process of innovating and skiing faster. On the way they developed new progressions and drills that lead to great success.

In the end all 4 skied faster, and won more races than they had before. 3 out of 4 were ranked number 1 in the USSA Central Division, and 2 went on win multiple Mid-Am titles. Three out of 4 qualified for National Championships.

In 2003 co-founder Ryan Shorter ran his first summer camp at Mt. Hood, and first Colorado fall camp. The camps were founded on 5 basic principles:

  • Learning new skills is a fun and positive endeavor.
  • Every skill can be broken down into simpler easy to learn steps.
  • Camps should be small so that courses are always in good shape making it easier to execute new skills. That is why we still limit our camps to only 20 athletes per training lane.
  • Each athlete deserves personal attention and feedback to improve. That is why we keep ratios to 5 athletes to 1 coach.
  • Hire the best coaches possible.

2019 marks the 17th year of PV Alpine. Over the years we have helped hundreds of athletes ski their best and reach their goals. From those just getting started racing to those athletes headed to the Olympics we have helped them all. 

As we enter our 17th year we are as committed as ever to providing the absolute best camp experience, and helping any level of racer achieve their goals.
