Who We Are

As winter approaches, our Snow School family comes together again. For me, this is a magical time of the year, as I get to reconnect with all the members of our Snow School, both old and new.

What brings us all together, and what we all share, is a passion for teaching, and spending time with our guests. We love to share what we know about our chosen profession, be it alpine skiing, snowboarding or cross-country skiing.  

Our Snow School is a very diverse group of individuals, from young to old and from very experienced to the new pros starting out on their careers, but what we have in common is our love of the outdoors, the mountains, the fresh air and the health of what that brings to our lives. This is what we want to share with everyone.

We love what we do, we work every day to be the best that we can be, not just as instructors, but as ambassadors of our sport. We work together to share insights into sport technology, technical updates and applications. We spend time together discussing what that means, developing our own skills, and how we can help our guests have the best experience possible. This covers a very broad scope, from a very general resort experience, to skill development sessions, to personalized training. 

The depth of knowledge and experience in our Snow School pros is amazing! There are pros who have been with us for 30+ years, they know the mountain inside and out, and on the worst day, can find the best the mountain has to offer. We also have those pros who are the best at entertaining young skiers or snowboarders.

For us, Snow School and teaching is a way of life, it is who we are. We continue to learn and develop every day, to be the best that we can be. This is what keeps us in it, and we hope we can share this passion with anyone and everyone! That is what this column will highlight throughout the season – the unique stories and work of the Winter Sport School and the people who make it what it is.
