Eddie’s first experience skiing was at Lake Eden, a half hour west of Edmonton. He was 19 years old & skiing with borrowed gear. Eddie had a blast and, from that point on, avidly pursued the sport.
Prior to joining the Jasper Freeride Coaching Team in the 2009 – 2010 season, Eddie worked for many years with the Marmot Basin Ski School and the Jasper Ski Team (Nancy Greene). So he’s no stranger to the Marmot Basin Resort.
Eddie’s always looking for a new challenge. It keeps him passionate about the sport. Eddie’s got a good eye.
