Linda has been a familiar face with LWSC since 2007. She can often be found helping that first time skier get in their bindings and sent on their way, making sure they leave and return with a smile. She loves the outdoors; free time is spent skiing, biking or casting her fly rod.

Corey is the newest member to the LWSC team. He brings his years of marketing and event experience to the table and get's ready to hit every season hard with it! He grew up in Manson and understands what "community" means as he wants to bring more of this to Leavenworth.
Andrea grew up in Leavenworth and participated on the Junior Nordic Team. She's a pro at event planning and loves skiing! Her energetic attitude keeps our busy, little club going at events. During her spare time you may find her skate skiing the Icicle River Trail or skiing Stevens Pass.
Kevin has more than 20 years experience in snow sports instruction. He has a professional Level 3 certificate in Nordic track, Level 2 in alpine and Level 1 in telemark. He's been the head coach for the Junior Nordic Team since 2009 and created the kindergarten program as well.
Brett is a Minnesota Boy that has lived in Leavenworth since 1992. He and his wife Nancy love the recreational opportunities that kids have in this valley. Skiing on the St. Olaf College Team and being a believer in the concept "the more time on snow the better" have helped prepare him for coaching the team. A tele skier by preference, Brett and the other coaches encourage all the kids to become well-rounded skiers. Jumping, Alpine racing and Nordic skiing are all brought together during the Bakke Cup which is typically held in early February. Come out and support the kids on the LWSC Alpine Team!
