Western Mountain Sports Funding The Mountain Sports program at Western Colorado University provides student athletes with opportunities to be part of a like-minded community and pursue collegiate athletics. Unmatched by any other collegiate programs in the nation, Mountain Sports is made up of teams in trail running, mountain biking, rock climbing, freeride ski and snowboarding, nordic skiing, alpine skiing, and ski mountaineering.
