This is my 12th year coaching at Walled Lake Central. I started my interest in skiing in the 80's skiing at Sugar Loaf in Cedar Michigan. In the early 90's I lived in Crested Butte and work for the hill and Western State College of Colorado. During those years I just loved free skiing and had never raced. When I moved back to the Mid-west is when I started to get into racing. I raced with the Cleveland Metro Ski League for 6 years in my early 30's and I was hooked. Moved back to Michigan in 2000 and started teaching and working at Shumaker's Ski Shop.
