Freeski Park & Pipe Coach
Peter was born in Aspen, Colorado and moved to Vail when he was two years old. He has been skiing since before he can remember and loves nothing more than to spend a day on the mountain with friends.
Peter has been on many different ski teams over the years including Buddy Warner racing, Vail Mountain School (Vail, CO) Telemark freeski team, and the CU park team. Peter graduated from Vail Mountain School in 2017. While at VMS Peter was a member of the soccer and telemark teams where he made friends from Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy and started to learn about Ski & Snowboard Club Vail through them.
He graduated from Colorado University Boulder (Boulder, CO) in 2021. At CU Boulder Peter majored in Environmental Sciences with a minor and emphasis in Atmospheric and Oceanic Science. While on the CU Freeski Team, he was the park co-captain and helped organize events for teammates such as slush cups, competitions, and ski trips. He and friends participated in various intramural sports including soccer, tennis, ping pong, and bowling. This was a great way to try new sports and meet new friends and even won the bowling intramural championship tournament.
Beyond time spent playing intramural sports in college, Peter would drive back home to Vail every weekend to go skiing. He finds so much joy spending time outside sliding around on skis. Peter knew he wanted to pursue a job within the ski industry right after college.
Peter is very excited for the opportunity to share his experience with athletes and make the mountain a fun, safe place to play with others that share enthusiasm for the sport. As a first year coach he is excited to bring energy to SSCV and has a lot to offer in terms of knowledge, experience, and general energy to athletes and all other members of SSCV. Peter is stoked to watch athletes progress throughout the season and to spend time on the mountain with a group of kids that are just as excited and happy to ski as he is.
