The Stratton Mountain School-to-Winter Olympics pipeline is strong.

For those who haven’t heard of the small prep institution in southern Vermont, Stratton Mountain School has sent 46 alumni to the Olympics – and several are competing in 2022, including cross-country skier Jessie Diggins.

On 'The Podium' from Day 2 of the 2022 Winter Olympics, three Stratton alumni – snowboarder Louie Vito and cross-country skiers Ben Ogden and Julia Kern – talk about their experience at the school. 

Topics range from how Stratton differed from a typical high school in a small Vermont community to whether certain senior pranks were pulled.

You can find new episodes of The Podium on Amazon Music.
