Thank you for tuning into our latest episode of #AskAnExpert of skiing! Metro Vancouver has had an exceptionally snowy winter, and with record-breaking rain on 27 out of 30 days in March, our local mountains are still in great condition for skiing and snowboarding.

Dan also has Level 3 High-Performance Coaching Certification with the Canadian Ski Coaches Federation and has 14 years as professional ski coach – 7 in Banff, and 10 in Vancouver.
