Skifaster.net reports that former Green Mountain Valley School head coach Jon Arne Enevoldsen has joined the coaching staff at the Alberta World Cup Academy. A native of Norway, Enevoldsen has been a fixture on the New England Junior Olympic Coaching staff over the past years and has helped to develop some of the top young skiers in the country.
Bringing perspectives as both an elite-level coach and athlete in biathlon as well as cross-country skiing, Enevoldsen also has significant wax room expertise. He has now relocated from Vermont to the Bow Valley for the 2008 — 2009 competitive season, which begins on December 6 in Vernon, B.C.
Academy Racing Director Mike Cavaliere says that “With the arrival of Jon Arne, our team gains a strong experienced coach, who is committed to helping the Academy fulfill its program goals. Jon Arne increases our capacity to service athletes, and to offer coaching expertise and training through outreach to the Canadian cross country community.”
