Always wanting to ski. Scott would ski around on hills in his town after school and wait for neighbors to give him rides to the nearest ski hills.

Scott has also coached and taught skiing in Australia, New Zealand, and Mt. Hood during the summer seasons. He still enjoys working in New Zealand when he is able to go. Scott has coached athletes from U8 to Collegiate to Masters level to FIS/Nor-Am athletes. He holds PSIA L3, PSIA Kids 2, and USSA L300 certifications.
Scott wants to instill strong skiing skills and knowledge to our very young Future Star athletes. This is such an important age to help create a love of skiing, solid technical skills, and a wonderment for a sport the child can bring forward with them for the rest of their life.
And, most importantly, it is an opportunity for each child to learn goal setting, individualism, taking care of themselves, getting along with others, accepting others, and developing team cohesion. These are some important items coaches can help teach each child, things they can carry onward for their entire lives. It's For the Kids with a goal that each child learn more than just about skiing.
