Do you ski, snowboard or both? If so, for how many years?

I only snowboard. But I teach both. I skied for about 15 years. 7 on ski patrol. I have been snowboarding since 1989 and teaching since 1999. I taught 2 years at Snowbird, Utah, good times!

Do you have a car? If so, would you be willing to drive/carpool?

Suzuki sidekick. It is small, but it goes. Carpooling is better that solo. However, I have a condo in Incline Village and stay at the lake as much as possible.

What are your top three favorite resorts in Tahoe?

The top two would be Northstar and Mt Rose. Love the chutes. Got to get my Kirkwood groove on!

Would you be interested in attending meetup ski/snowboarding trips outside of Tahoe? Outside of California? If so, where?

I have training in the Intermountain division. I have been to a few resorts in Utah, Wyoming and Colorado. Always room for learning more stuff.

Are you interested in participating in a group season pass? If so, with which resort?

I will be getting an Epic pass and Squaw/Alpine Pass. Going to get some serious ride time in this season.


I love Tahoe and the snow. I am looking to meet others who love the thrill of the chill. I am interested in doing more social activities. I am a pro ski and snowboard instructor and would be interested in offering my skills to other members.
