Andrea Brown A3Section 3 Alpine Representative PSIA-AASI C
Since my first turns at Boyne Mountain at the age of 4, the sport of skiing has been a lifelong passion. I joined the Wilmot Mountain ski school in 1984 after spending three winters in Vail Colorado. I am Level III Alpine Certified. I have dabbled in Alpine ski racing, participated in PSIA cross country and telemark events and attended 10 National Academies. Thanks to my PSIA certification I had the opportunity to teach skiing at Crested Butte and Winter Park. I have many hobbies and interests that I pursue when I am not skiing. Among them are being outdoors, especially bicycling and open water swimming.
I am an award-winning journalist and marketing-communications professional with a background in video production. Most recently I worked in public relations for a nonprofit museum organization.
My role as a member of the PSIA-C Board of Directors is to make sure the organization continues to serve the interests of all members, helping us be our best as snowsports instructors and ambassadors.
