#AskAnExpert – Skiing

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.

Dr. Michael Ryan is joined by Dan Lacroix, a Level 4 Ski Instructor with the CSIA, with whom he does examining for professional development programs and instructor courses for Levels 1 & 2 at the local mountains, including Grouse, Seymour, and Cypress. 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.
