Megan Delaney Rossman
Megan grew up alpine skiing with her parents every weekend and exploring the backcountry with her dad. She did not get into nordic skiing, however, until high school. With a background in figure skating and endurance training from cross country Megan quickly picked up the sport and enjoys it immensely!
Megan graduated from Battle Mountain High School (Edwards, CO) and attended St. Olaf College (Northfeild, MN) studying Art History. She was a member of the NCAA D3 cross country and track/field teams, captaning both teams during her years.
She started coaching figure skating while in high school, teaching both large groups and private individuals and that carried with her through college. Since returning to the Vail Valley Megan has coached cross country for Battle Mountain High School and has worked with the SSCV nordic program through the Elementary School Outreach program, and this will be her first season coaching nordic with club athletes!
In her time on the Battle Mountain High School Nordic team she was a top three finisher for High School Nordic two consecutive years and attended Junior Nationals with the club team only a year into competiting in JNQ races. Megan was a three-sport athlete at Battle Mountain High School working on figure skating, cross country, and nordic all at the same time. Her accomplishments have helped her find the right balance with integrating athletics into one’s life. This has helped her become a well rounded coach who cares holistically about each of her athletes.
Megan is looking forward to seeing the growth of the athletes both in their ability and their confidence. Watching an athlete work through the process of achieving their goals is highly rewarding and Megan hopes that she can help foster and support the process as much as possible.
