Kevin Sundheim

Snowboard Park & Pipe Coach

My First memory of skiing I was around 5 years old. Sliding down a very small hill side at McIntyre Ski area in Manchester, NH. I tried my hardest to make a pizza with my skis as my baby sitter held me up. The next time I was at a Ski area I was 10 and my brother and we took our first snowboard lesson together. I then joined our schools ski club and was hooked on sliding slide ways after that.

I attend Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH for high school. I then went on to receive a Bachelors Degree of Science in Adventure Education at Plymouth State University. I Spend all of my free time in both high school and college in the winters either working as a snowboard instructor or riding Loon Mountain Park

I first started instructing in 2004 at a small mountain in NH called Pats Peak. Sense then I have instructed at many resorts and volunteered at adaptive ski schools both in NH and Colorado. Before coming to SSCV I worked at Woodward Copper for many years where I received my AASI Level III, PISA Level I and AASI FreeStyle II. Sense joining SSCV I have received my USASA level I and FIS License.

I hope to spread and share my joy for snowboarding while encourage the growth of courage and confidence in our athletes here at SSCV. I look forward to growing my self and furthering my careers an a freestyle snowboard coach here as SSCV.
