Justin EDENBAUM
President


I found NTSC at a bar when I moved to Toronto in the summer of 2010. I thought, "this is such a diverse group of people, but they can't be co-workers. They are having too much fun!" That September, I waited in line to secure my membership. I continue to develop as a snowboarder (thanks to ski school) and take tons of trips. As President, I want to make volunteering for this organization a positive learning experience.

ALBERTO MARTINEZ
VICE-PRESIDENT

It is an honour to have the opportunity to serve the club's membership as Vice-President for the 2022-2023 ski season, following my last years' involvement as a member of its Audit Committee.

I first joined the club in the 1990's, learned to ski, met my wife there, and subsequently left the club to raise a family. While away from the club, I managed to continue to ski every year, with my two children becoming ski instructors in their early teens. I rejoined the club in 2018 and since then I have been on many mid-week, weekend and week-long trips, and have enjoyed the club's social activities.

I feel lucky to have been able to ski, travel and party with the club over the years and I will work with the board to continue to deliver great skiing, travel and social opportunities to all members.  If you see me on the slopes, at social events or ski destinations, please come and say hello.  Your volunteering with the club and suggestions on how we can improve your experience with the club are welcomed! They will help me in my learning about the service you expect from us and will influence my priorities for the 2023-2024 ski season when I will be serving as the club's next President.

VERONIKA LARSON
SECRETARY

This is my fifth season with the club, and first on the Board.  To say that NTSC has had a huge impact on me is an understatement!  Not only to my skiing, as our incredible snow school has taken me from a nervous Step 5 to a CSIA Level 1 Instructor, but more importantly, by introducing me to a fabulous community and providing experiences I would never of dreamed of.

I am so excited to have the opportunity to give back to the club this year, and I will steal Justin’s phrase and encourage everyone to “be selfish - volunteer!” as you really do get back more than you put in when you join our amazing group of volunteers.

I look forward to meeting you on the hill or at a social.  It’s going to be a great season!


karen reich
Treasurer

Next year will be my 12th year with NTSC and I'm so thankful for all the amazing friendships and rewarding experiences I've enjoyed over the years. With all that NTSC has given me - I am excited to give back as Treasurer for the 2022/2023 season . I look forward to working with the Board of Directors and volunteers to ensure NTSC remains financially strong for future generations to enjoy!

If you have any questions or would like to help out with our Club’s bookkeeping activities - don't hesitate to contact me at treasurer@ntsc.ca. 


LAURA GARDINER
ALPINE DAY TRIPS DIRECTOR

I was fortunate enough to grow up in BC where I spent all of my winters from the age of 3 on the snow and in the mountains … loving every minute of it. When I moved to Toronto in 2016, I didn’t know where to ski and missed my time on the hills immensely. I discovered NTSC and it quickly became my community and gateway into Toronto. I really enjoyed getting out as much as possible and sharing my passion with a group of like-minded, fun and enthusiastic skiers / boarders that I am now happy to call my friends.

I enjoyed my experience with NTSC so much that I decided to jump in with both feet to plan the daytrips for 2017/2018, a position I have occupied ever since. I want all members to enjoy this great sport and will work with the resorts, bus companies and our IT department to bring you the best experience possible for a travelling ski club. You should expect nothing less from NTSC!

If you see me on the bus, on the hill, at any of the socials, or just bump into me downtown, feel free to reach out! I love all suggestions regarding Day Trips and the Club!

stuart teather
MEMBERSHIP & MARKETING DIRECTOR

Its time to get out there again.  Coming out of two seasons where masks were more important than skis or a board, it feels really good to look forward to what we hope and expect will be a normal season again.

A normal season to us means an opportunity to spend your winters outdoors with like-minded members who want to have a great time on the snow, in a chalet, meeting up in Toronto or perhaps in Whistler or Europe.

If you are new to the sport, this is the best way to learn.  If you are experienced and want to get better, this is the place for you.  If you are tired because your friends aren't going or you don't want to drive, look no further.

We are going.  And, we are going to have a good time!

So join us this year.  Your best winter ever is sitting right in front of you!

Amelia Nedovich
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.



Mark Y.
Operations and Technology Director

Since joining the club I’ve had many unique, incredible experiences - whether skiing above the clouds or into an entirely different country for lunch, or exploring some of the runs used in the Olympics.   Virtual skiing during lockdown just isn’t the same... I never did figure out how to attach my ski boots to the balance board. And it doesn’t have a warm can of vending machine coffee either.

This role focuses on the behind-the-scenes activities that keep our club going, and I look forward to making your ski club experience, better/easier and more fun!

JACK DRING
SNOW SCHOOL Director


I moved to Canada with work in 2018 and joining NTSC turned out to be the single best decision of the move! I've spent more time on the slopes, travelled and made some of my closest friends through joining the club and am very excited to give something back as a volunteer board member!

I have spent numerous years running summer waterski programs in the USA and am very excited to turn my attention to leading an alpine skiing program for a change!

You'll find me on the slopes from first-tracks all the way through to slushy spring-skiing! Don't be afraid to say hi! Alternatively, if you have any questions or suggestions concerning the Snow School, please contact me.

leigh rosar
Social director

I learned to ski as a child growing up in Hockley Valley, and was introduced to "the big hills"  as a  teenager when my family relocated to Calgary.  I was lucky enough to spend my formative years skiing in Banff,  Montana and BC.  As grownup life took over and I was relocated back to Toronto for work; unfortunately skiing took a back seat for a number of years until finally I determined I missed it too much and needed to get back on the hills! 

Through NTSC I found a wonderful new network of friends and by taking advantage of the ski school program I've seen a huge improvement in my skiing, but even as a beginner skiing for me was always a social sport;  it was weekends away, apres at the pub, and trading snow stories with friends after a great day on the slopes.  That's why joining the social committee was important to me, and why now as the Director of the socials program I'm excited to work with my team to help create opportunities for our members to socialize and bring on-slope friendships, off the slopes!


Cara FLEMMING
Travel director

The 2022/23 season will be my second one as Travel Director, and wow!, have I learned a lot from the fantastic Board members, Travel Committee members and, of course, all of you. It's been such a rewarding experience planning trip options for your well deserved vacation time. The Travel Committee has a jammed packed trip schedule for 2022/23.  We are so excited to have you join us on an air or bus trip to the greatest and widest variety of resorts we've offered in many years.

Six years ago when I joined the Club, I couldn't imagine how much my life would change by joining a ski club.  NTSC has provided me with amazing friendships, incredible travel to ski resorts around the world and some really fun social events. I am a huge fan of the ski school and never miss an opportunity to sing its praises. I didn't start skiing seriously until my "prime of life" and the ski school has really helped me improve, so much so that I am now an instructor with NTSC. I'm proof that it's never too late to learn something new.

I look forward to seeing you on the hill, whether it's on a trip or in a lesson.
