A Message From Program Director and Head Coach

Fun is such an important part of ski racing.  It is my personal opinion that if you are not having fun while doing something you need to change what you are doing.  The Cranmore Race Team coaching staff is committed to making this a positive, fun experience for all kids in the program.

I love the sport of skiing!  Growing up in the Mount Washington Valley I was a member of the CRT where I developed this lifelong passion for the sport of skiing and ski racing.  Along the way I also learned to set goals, work hard, make good choices (most of the time), be a good team member, build confidence and grow as a ski racer.  These are just a few life skills that serve us all well and hopefully I can pass them along to the athletes. 

I watch friendships grow among the athletes and it reminds me of the lasting friendships I developed while ski racing with CRT.  Nobody understands better the effort and hard work it takes to become a good ski racer than someone who shares similar goals.  Being part of the CRT is such a great experience and I’m glad I get to share it with the many athletes who come in and out of the program.  The best part of my job is being on the hill watching the athletes train.  I love being able to interact with the kids/athletes on a daily basis.  It enables me to share my ski racing knowledge and experiences.  I get to connect with so many young athletes and watch them improve from day to day.    You can see howmuch they enjoy skiing and working hard towards their goals.  I guess they are having fun!  It’s really great.

I recognize the huge commitment the athletes make and more importantly the financial and time commitment from the racer’s parents and for that I say Thank You.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions/concerns or suggestions.

Ski fast, stay safe, dream big and most of all have fun!
