Wildcat has been home for my wife, Luci and my family for over 30 years. Ski Instruction seemed like a logical choice for me when I entered the profession 15 years ago. For more than 10 years I taught all ages, and especially enjoy helping guests move beyond a stumbling block in their skiing. For the past 6 years I have been a staff supervisor as well.
Polecat is fabulous trail, both scenic and varied, and is my favorite.
When not in ski boots, I build custom furniture.
Scuba diving, sailing, mountain biking and hiking are some of my off season activities.
