Meet Our Staff - Rob Mt. Peter Alpine Race Team

After another busy and successful race season, we caught up with Rob, Race Director and Coach for the Mount Peter Alpine Race Team

Rob (Right) and Coach Phil
How long have you worked at Mount Peter? 
Since 2006

Where did you learn to ski? 
Sterling Forest

What is your favorite Mount Peter run? 
Dynamite and West

What is your favorite Mount Peter memory?
Doing the first Karen Wieble race as a Kombi and watching the faces of the parents from the other mountains showing up and looking up the hill at a "Mini World Cup" race.  Then after a kid slid into the nets watching  ski patrol do a 360 on the "World Cup" snow while still in the handles of the sled.... and never skipping a beat.

What's something most people don't know about the Mount Peter race program? 
How much time we spend in the groomer with Kevin.  Either the night before to show him where we need snow for the race, or the morning of the race taking all the gates and nets up the hill to set.  Plus they don't see all the little things that go on behind the scene.
