My first skiing memories take place as a toddler on the bunny hill at the Leavenworth Ski Hill. Participating in “The Hatmaker” three-way race (now Bakke Cup) was always a winter highlight growing up. As a Junior I found a passion for Nordic ski racing that extended into adulthood. My wife and three children all learned to ski here in Leavenworth. The Leavenworth Winter Sports Club is a community treasure that benefits locals and visitors with affordable and convenient access to the great lifelong sport of skiing. The LWSC has a rich history and continues to evolve and I believe LWSC’s longevity and success to be rooted in the passionate dedication of its volunteer members. I consider it an honor to serve and participate in this local institution.
Born in Leavenworth and a beneficiary of my parents' early involvement in the LWSC (father board member 1973 to 1984), I grew up on the tow and in the tracks. Racing as a child, and in high school for the Nordic team, 96-98 with Torin Koos, I had the fortune to compete and savor the beauty of the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club. Now, after returning to Leavenworth, as an architect, husband, father, and community member, I have a different skill set ready to help in an arena that was such an important element in my younger years. I have an embedded and indebted duty towards the advocacy of the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club that I endeavor to pass on to generations to come.
