This is a bi-weekly column (well, most of the time) highlighting our ski coaches from around the country . including elite coaches, college coaches, high school coaches, volunteer coaches, and learn-to-ski coaches, and ambassadors to our sport. This is an effort to sample a diverse group of coaches/volunteers and recognize the people who are the backbone of today’s nordic community. If you would like to nominate a coach for an interview, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please give coach’s name, email, phone, and a several paragraph describing the nominee, their attributes, something unique about the person, and any other pertinent information.
