I began snowboarding back in 1979-80 just as snowboarding was starting to evolve, with lots of backcountry hiking back then. I started working forBurton Snowboards in 1988. Since that time I have been involved with the start up of snowboarding programs for younger children in several schools. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to introduce countless numbers of the young and old to the sport of snowboarding with beginner lessons. This year marks season number five working with the RideMeister group at SNSC.
