Scott’s first season in New Zealand dates to the late 90’s. He was working as an instructor for Coronet Peak, teaching for the ski school, while also involved with Win-tech, coaching and developing the Queenstown Snowboard Team and running the first snowboard instructor training program at Coronet Peak for Sit-CO. He worked his way up to Examiner status and gave several Stage One (now known as Level Two – yep, that was a while ago) and freestyle exams.
It has now been well over 12 back-to-back seasons for Scott, with full involvement and engagement in both Northern Hemi and Southern Hemi. Scott is currently working as Training and Performance Centre team leader at The Remarkables. He is a three-term AASI National Snowboard Team Member and the current coach of American Association of Snowboard Instructors National snowboard team. Scott is also Co-founder of GoSnow industries, the first on-demand booking platform for snowsport instructors.
