NORDIC PROGRAM DIRECTOR
I joined NTSC several years ago as an adult yearning to learn to ski. I started out with alpine skiing and will never forget my first lesson – I was a “never ever” at Devil’s Glen of all places and, of course, ended up with a private lesson. I have since been on many fabulous trips including Cortina Italy, Banff & Lake Louise, Whistler more than once, and my favourite of all time – Deer Valley in Utah where I had a fabulous evening at Robert Redford’s restaurant Zoom in Park City.
I’ve since moved on to nordic skiing for the fabulous scenery and physical exertion, starting out with classic and moving on to try to grasp skate technique.
A few years ago, I endured the program at the XC Supercamp at Silver Star in B.C. and am going back this year because, truth be told, I have not yet mastered skate skiing.
Why did I step up to the plate to take on the Nordic Director portfolio? It’s because I want to grow the program and attract many more members to the wonderful experience of gliding through a forest silent except for the sound of skis on freshly fallen snow. You should join me – I think you’d love it.
