Justin EDENBAUM
President


I found the 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 on line (or as Canadian say 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.

The board is still looking at the right candidate.

STEPHANIE HALL
SECRETARY

This will be my third season with NTSC and like many, wish I had joined earlier. I started skiing when I was 3 and picked up snowboarding as a teenager.  When I moved back to Toronto I felt like something was missing and once I joined NTSC, I knew I’d found my community. I love being part of this club and being able to give back as a trip leader, volunteer and now on the Board.

I have a love of the outdoors and travel; this club allows me to enjoy both while spending time with some fantastic people.

SHAWN LUo
Treasurer

First-time on the slopes was at MSL ski camp organized by my high school back in winter 2005... fast forward 15 years skiing lead to me many incredible altitudes at Whistler, Revelstoke, Kicking Horse, Banff, Aspen, Tremblant, Sugarloaf... More maps to unfold, more slopes to unlock. I picked up sailing as a summer sport a few years ago by joining J-town, and folks from there recommended NTSC that offers a tremendous amount of value in ski lessons, day trip buses and charter trips. Passed CSIA level 1 in Feb 2020 and looking to get more times on the slope to improve for level 2 next year.

I'm a CPA, so treasury/accounting work seems a complementary way I could contribute to the club.

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. Last year 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. 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’d love all suggestions regarding Day Trips and the Club!

Funny note about me: I love the rain, because when it’s raining in the mainland it usually means it’s snowing in the mountains!  I look forward to you sharing a funny thing about yourself with me!

HANI JAWHARI
MEMBERSHIP & MARKETING DIRECTOR

I taught myself how to downhill ski, on the steep crazy Lebanese mountains (2000m). I moved to Toronto a few years ago and wanted to reinvigorate my skiing skills and enjoy the winter outdoors. A close family friend, introduced me to NTSC, and since then I have enjoyed skiing with the club, meeting new people, who I now call friends, and learning new techniques!  

I am an art director who lives & breathes advertising/marketing as a day job and I intend to use my skills in supporting NTSC. 

JOHNATHAN FARRELL
NORDIC PROGRAM DIRECTOR

Snow has always been wonderful to interact with, especially when growing up in a warm climate country. Since immigrating to Canada in the Summer of 2013, I have been hitting the snow every winter. My experience is mostly around Nordic and Alpine skiing, although in 2019, I mainly invested my time in snowboarding. Around that time, I first heard about the idea of ski clubs from a good friend, who enticed me to join, and 2020 was my first season with the club.

There is no need to waste time and energy driving in traffic or through snowstorms to enjoy winter activities. Instead, there is a good chunk of time to relax, get to know fellow adventurers and form some friendships while feeling so much better with one's environmentalism-driven values to prevent so many cars on the road. NTSC offers value in providing access to nature and outdoors both sustainably and socially while having the opportunities to continuously improve one's skill level and social circle at a great price.

I am honoured to contribute my time and professional expertise in project and operations management to NTSC's wellbeing as part of the Board and work with a very strong team through the various current challenges. I look forward to meeting and talking with members about our club and how we can continue to provide an excellent experience. If you see me on the bus, snow, socials, or just bump into me in Toronto, please feel free to reach out. I would love all suggestions regarding the Nordic program and the club going forward.

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.

STUART TEATHER
Social director

Traveling up to a hill with a bunch of strangers or going on trips with people you don’t know isn’t much fun.  You could join a ski club for a number of reasons, but the desire to experience skiing or boarding with friends is usually top of the list.  People want to ski, party, and travel with people that they know.  Does this sound like you?

North Toronto Ski Club has a well-earned reputation as club for people to meet members who then become friends. They become part of an active community of like-minded people that make the most of Canadian winters … both on and off of the slopes.

My job as social director, is to provide opportunities for members to get together for fun, and that is exactly what we will do in 2019/2020.  Toronto is a big place with lots to do.  Make the most out of the opportunity that NTSC provides to you both on and off of the slopes and join us!

Note from Membership Chair on Stuart’s Modesty: Stuart is a 3 time winner of the Most Contributing Male (Doug Ferrier Award), former Marketing and Membership Director and perennial chairperson for NTSC during his 17+ years with the club.

Cara FLEMMING
Travel director

The 2021-22 season will be my fifth year as an NTSC member.  Five years ago, I couldn't imagine how much my life would change by joining a ski club.  The Club 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.  

I joined the Charters Committee during the 2019-20 season and am looking forward to giving back to a club that has provided me with so much. Fingers crossed that we'll be able to offer a full slate of air and bus trips this upcoming season.
