School Overview

Colorado Mountain College (abbreviated CMC) operates eleven community colleges throughout western Colorado. CMC students can pursue Associate’s degrees and four-year Bachelor’s degrees. CMC specializes in technical programs related to outdoor recreation and ski resorts, as well as preparing students to transfer to four-year universities.

Many of the general education courses offered at CMC are comparable to introductory classes at four-year universities. CMC also provides professional certificates and specialized career training in a wide variety of fields.

CMC specializes in preparing students for careers in the ski industry. This includes training in the ski and snowboard business, marketing and product development, hotel and resort management, slope and lift maintenance, and environmental sustainability studies. The school also offers programs in nursing, veterinary medicine and culinary arts, in which students can apprentice at AAA Four Diamond resorts.

Many of CMC’s classes are broadcast live over the school’s interactive video system. This allows students to interact with specialized instructors at other CMC sites.

CMC is home to a vibrant community of campus organizations, student clubs, honor societies and recreational activities, which focus on the winter sports that dominate western Colorado. The school’s Steamboat Springs ski team competes in the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association.
