It was a very competitive tryout at Mt. Hood Meadows on May 3-5, 2013. Congratulations to all those who tried out; you all demonstrated a very high level of expertise in many aspects of snowsports education. Your snowsports schools and your students will benefit from your efforts. Well done.
Returning team members selected at this tryout are Tyler Barnes, Jeremy Riss, Linda Cowan, and Scott Weimer. Re-joining the team, after a 2 year absence, is Dave Lucas, and a new addition is Michael Phillips. These top snow pros were selected during a 3-day tryout process which included both indoor presentations, on-snow skiing evaluations and peer-teaching sessions.
The above mentioned team members will be joining current team members, whose terms end in 2015, Garth McPhie, Terry McLeod McLeod, Brad Jacobson, John May and Kim Petram along with the coaching staff of Nick McDonald, Lane McLaughlin and Rick Lyons.
