Grant, the son of a ski school director, comes to coaching honestly! Growing up and skiing in the Eastern U.S. and attending a ski academy, Grant had a very successful ski racing career that culminated at the U.S. Ski Team Development Team level. Skiing for the University of Alaska, Grant was the captain of his university ski team and is a two-time NCAA All American.
After completing a degree in Applied Ethics, Grant studied Small Business and Entrepreneurship. Grant has founded or cofounded profit and non-profit companies including the National Alpine Training Center, Canmore MRI, the Lake Louise All Mountain Ski Club, and the Lake Louise Athletic Development Association.
Passionate about the sport of ski racing and coaching, Grant, a Performance Level Certified and NCCP Level 3 Certified coach, has coached for over 25 years. With a strong track record in ski coaching, Grant employs a long term approach toward athlete development- trying to see each and every athlete realize their athletic and personal potential.
When Grant is not coaching, he is the Owner and Operator of Rocky Mountain Rehab & Sports Medicine Clinic in Canmore, Alberta – a business he and his wife Lynne own together. A true ski family, Grant and Lynne have two children who are equally as passionate for the sport of skiing: Cole (big mountain, slopestyle) and Britt (alpine ski racing). Mountain biking, hiking, stand up paddling, trail running, etc. fill the families days when the opportunity arises at their home in Canmore.
