I have been a professional athlete since 2001, Head Coach for the Alta/Snowbird Freeride Team, IFSA board member. “I moved to Utah from Idaho when I was 17 to ski race at Snowbird. Along the way I found the amazing sport of big mountain freeskiing and have dedicated a decade of my life to growing, promoting, and coaching the sport. Nothing is better than skiing powder with athletes and watching them push themselves beyond what they thought was possible.”
My technical tip that I would provide is proper skill progression is essential if you can’t arc a turn on a groomer than you probably shouldn’t be trying a cork 7 off the biggest table in the park. You have to walk before you can run.
I was privileged to have the opportunity to compete and ski with Ryan over the past few years. When I was the event director for the Junior Freeskiing Tour I wanted to hire judges who would travel the whole series. Ryan was an obvious choice with his years of competition experience, enthusiastic approach to skiing and life, and his overall appeal of being what I wanted the junior athletes to aspire to become.
I elected to become a Flyin Ryan Team coach because I am deeply passionate about the sport of freeskiing and feel lucky to be a part of such a great program. I have a few years of coaching experience and look forward to sharing what I have learned over the years with the other Flyin Ryan Team Ambassador Coaches.
