Neil has been with Blizzard for a total of seven years, one as a student with the Parent Breakthrough Program and six as an instructor. Neil is certified as a Level 1 Alpine instructor and Child Specialist with the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA). Neil is originally from central Pennsylvania and did not grow up as a skier, but has found a home here in Minnesota. During these past 7 years, he has found a love for skiing as a time to bond with family and friends as well as an opportunity to learn and teach new skills - whether here or in the mountains out West. Neil’s two children have participated in Blizzard’s programs including the Apprentice Program and both are certified instructors as well.
