Can answer any question related to the technique and the technology of alpine skiing and snowblading as well as the selection and maintenance of the equipment and clothing needed. Most race related questions from entry level (age 5) to approx age 18 (J2) and Masters (18+). Am not able to answer detailed questions about all ski resorts though some general questions about the areas in Banff, the East Kootenays and Okanagan in Canada are possible.
I have been a recreational skier since the age of six (47 years) and am currently a race coach and instructor trainer in Canada. Have been in the ski industry since 1976 as a professional instructor, equipment technician and retailer and am currently a Sales Manager for Canada's largest national sporting goods retailer (Sport Chek). Have been a volunteer coach at the international level for skiing as part of Special Olympics. Am currently the Head Coach for the Manitoba Masters Ski Club. Have a well rounded background in technique and technology for all levels including snowblades. Access to considerable information on snowboarding and training for skiing.
