Get to know some of the Chicopee Team Members over the next few weeks as we conduct interviews in different departments around the hill.

Ava - Race Coach

How many years have you worked at Chicopee?

"This is my second season working as a coach at Chicopee!"

What’s your favourite part about coaching?  

"It is hard to target just one thing, but I love seeing my racers grow and develop their skiing skills throughout the season. Being apart of that process is pretty cool."

What does a regular day in your life at Chicopee look like?

"I get to the hill at 8:30am and prepare the hill for my team, whether that be by setting a course or putting up the numbered signs. At 9:00am, Rebecca (my coaching partner) and I will greet our team. We work on skill focused drills until 11:00am. After the break, we implement what we learned in the morning into a course environment. At 1:00pm, I’ll say goodbye to my team and probably do some free skiing!"

One fun-fact you’d like to share about yourself: 

"I’d like to teach skiing or coach out west someday!"
