Topic: The Snowman

My name is Braden Anderson, although some know me simply as "Coach," or "COACH!" I've had my legs attached to fiberglass and wood for as long as I can remember and hope this never changes. I have taught ski and snowboard lessons in New Mexico for the past five years under the certification of international instructor organizations PSIA and AASI. In this blog, I hope to bring my readers the sense of adventure and excitement that comes from tearing down a double-black diamond at lightspeed or landing that 360 misty-flip. These blogs are for all who enjoy the winter sports, as well as for those who haven't made it up to the slopes...yet.
