Ahhh, Javier. You've never met a guy more sincere than Javi. He'll have you constantly improving on the runs and laughing on every chair lift. Javi's really fun to ski with and his particular style of coaching is refreshing. Javier spends his winters with us and our summers (his winters) as a backcountry ski guide in Las Lenas. Here's a recent video of Javier.
Joel is probably the most Kiwiest Kiwi to ever come out of New Zealand..! His accent is full-on and he has more sayings than we know what to do with - he's funny as..! Joel is also one hell of a good skier and coach. Freeski and freestyle - this guy does it all and loves to coach. Joel is a Beekeeper in the off season. Ask him about his bees, bro.

From big mountain lines to park tricks, from deep powder to deep carves and everything in between, you’ll learn so much from Javier!
Cam is the MAN. One of our CSIA certified instructors, Cameron’s a super experienced freestyle & free-skier and has more ski badges than a boy scout! Cam is uber mountain wise when it comes to on-piste, off-piste, powder, carvers, trees, drops etc. Cam is also a lifeguard and likes fishing, candle lit dinners and long walks in the snow…

Austin is arguably the nicest pro skier & instructor you’ll ever meet. Raised purely on skiing since he was smaller than a ski boot, he’s emerged as one of Canada’s best pro skiers. His perma-smile, super positive energy and wicked mountain knowledge makes this guest pro a favorite. Austin balances his winter between photo shoots, big contests, filming for Warren Miller and skiing with Core.
