I have been on the LERT Board of Directors for 7 years. I grew up skiing the deep blue ice of the East Coast and moved to Colorado in 1995 chasing snow, single track and mountains. My goal with the LERT board is to help ensure a deeply enriching experience for everyone involved in the EMSC ski racing and SMBA Mountain Biking programs whether they are a young athlete, a coach or a parent. Having a program such as LERT is instrumental in building a solid community that can support activities such as ski racing and mountain biking, two sports that I truly love. The future is bright for the LERT program and I would like to help to develop additional programs and ensure that the Ski and Mountain Biking programs are some of the best in the country. I currently am the President of La Sportiva North America and I live in Nederland, CO with my wife and two teenage sons Talus and Kale who both are or have been EMSC and SMBA athletes.
