About

I decided a couple years ago that snowboarding was going to be the most important thing in my life. For the past three winters now, I have been able to share my love and passion for this sport with others. When I am teaching a lesson I am not actually working, I am simply doing what I love to do, helping others to achieve their goals and become better riders. 

I have a big quiver of boards depending on what the conditions are, but mainly I use my Rome Artifact Camber. I enjoy riding full camber boards with a nice mid flex. It allows me to really lay into carves, but also have plenty of fun in the park. I also have a pair skis and teach everything from beginners to intermediate and some freestyle.

My favorite run at Bolton Valley would have to be show off because it’s right under the lift. I like laying out some nice carves on it, and it shoots me right into the park. 

When I'm not instructing I can be found on the mountain constantly working on my own riding preparing for my level 3 exam next winter. During the summer I work landscaping because I love being outdoors. Other fun activities I enjoy are mountain biking, skateboarding, disc golf, and cliff jumping.

Intermediate - Level 1 - Adult Group Lesson Snowboard

I've had multiple lessons with Chris. He is a wonderful instructor with so much passion for snowboarding. He keeps everyone motivated and seems to have unlimited ideas to improve our snowboarding . Anyway loved his lessons and would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a great time snowboarding .

Beginner - Kid's Snowboard Group + Lift Ticket - Full Day

Chris taught both my kids as beginners. My son snowboarding and my daughter skiing. After the first day the kids were excited about learning and were happy to get on the mountain the next day. By the end of the season with a combination of after school learning and group lessons, the kids were loading and unloading the Snowflake lift by themselves. I definitely recommend Chris for lessons. He's friendly and great with the kids!

Intermediate - Level 1 - Kids Group - Full Day Snowboard

My daughter has had several lessons with Chris, he's very personable and relates to her easily. Harper (my daughter) skis and snowboards so having Chris as an instructor is perfect because we know we can request him no matter what she feels like doing. He's very technical and at the same time can bring it down to her level. She's improved a lot and I owe a lot of that to Chris. Thanks Chris!!

Chris was my daughter’s instructor for a full season. She had a great time and learned so much! She got faster and very comfortable anywhere on the mountain. This was truly a wonderful season that ended with a gold medal at the Vertical Challenge at Jay Peak. Chris is an excellent instructor.
