Here is the list!
The ones you already know about are:
The famous, gifted, and lovely, Robin Barnes--many time ESA coach and new member of the PSIA Alpine Team.
The equally famous, gifted, and somewhat less lovely Dan Egan--extreme skier extraordinaire, star of many Warren Miller films, and creator of SkiClinics off piste camps.
The equally famous, gifted, and considerably less lovely Bob Barnes--PSIA-RM examiner, techno-magic weanie, and tech director of Keystone Ski&Ride School.
The least famous, less gifted, and downright ugly Weems--long time strange entity, probably not originally from this planet and looking for a lifestyle that doesn't demand his presence.

The new guys! I'm really proud to announce:

Troy Walsh
1998-Present Line Coach/Trainer Sunday River Perfect Turn Ski School
2004-Present Part Time Ski Instructor Ski Schools of Aspen
2003- Present Alpine Board of Examiners, Eastern Division

Thanks Weems. I'll take one of each...

By the way, what are the plans this year for group selection?

--Survey,as in some years?
--Ski off?
--Self selection (self deception)?

Just wondering and thanks to all the organizers and coaches for all your work on this event.

New coach

We've found a wonderful new coach to round out the team for ESA Stowe. Meet Sue Kramer!

Sue is an Examiner with the Eastern division of PSIA as well as a member of the Eastern Alpine Team. She also coaches the J4 age group at the Bromley Outing Club in Peru, Vermont and is an alpine trainer for the Bromley Ski and Snowboard School. In March of 2008 she competed at the national NASTAR championships at Steamboat Colorado in the platinum division. She was a candidate for the National team selection in 2008 at Mammoth, California. Sue is also a traveling ski coach with We-Xplore, an outdoor adventure company, geared toward trips for women. In her spare time, she is working towards a Master’s degree in Kinesiology. In the summer months, Sue has a small pottery business, selling handcrafted items at local markets.

We'll get a photo up as soon as I figure. We'll get a photo up as soon as I figure out how!.

This is truly a wonderful team!

Wow--what an honor to be part of this team. Welcome back, Todo. You are right that on December 13-14, Stowe, Vermont will be the place to be!

I can't wait to see you guys (and that includes you, Robin--the little sister I always wanted...and looking forward to meeting you, Sue) and all the rest of the awesome EpicSki gang, once again at Stowe. I can almost smell the maple syrup and apple cider already!

Best regards,
Bob

looking forward to it!

Thanks for the welcome back! This truly is a privilege to work with all of the bears again. I am looking forward to the awesome amount of shared knowledge on skiing and learning not only from this group of coaches but from all the participants that bring some much passion to the table.

With the nice cold start to the year it should make for some great skiing at Stowe.

See you soon!
Todo

Todo, did weems tell you that you have to buy my lunch at Stowe?
Its true!
post #12 of 29
TC, how many lunches can you eat at one time?
post #13 of 29
I really don't eat much
post #14 of 29
Todo, don't worry about buying lunch. Trek buys at the bar.

East Coast has SNOW!

Hey Everyone,

East is off to another great start! Vermont has snow and lots of it. This past weekend at Sugarbush was off the charts! I hear the reports from Stowe are the same. So get ready to "rumble"! Can't wait to see you and ski with you all!

lunch

Lunch bill vs bar bill

I will take my chances with the lunch bill over the bar bill.

I always just eat the free crackers with ketchup hope that works for you Trek!

Wait a minute. This is the inventor of the virginclutch, is it not?
post #22 of 29
Robin invents a lot of stuff. Just ask the guy who had a breakthrough at Aspen with the "Captain Morgan."
post #23 of 29
She gave me lots of tips on skiing with 1 ski at Stowe last year. Apparently I was not ready for 2.

I'm happy to let Robin and all the others do the coaching. My plans for the ESA-Stowe weekend are just to take up space.

ESA Stowe '07 was great, and looks like we have even more coaches and therefore more students, yeah!

I could be wrong, but I believe this is the most students of any ESA-Stowe event. Anyone know for sure?
