Henry Yeigh | Train to Compete

FIS Coach

Henry grew up Caledon Ontario and on the shores of Georgian Bay at the family Cottage. Having a father as the Alpine Director at the Caledon Ski Club it is only natural that he clicked into his first pair of skis at the tender age of 2. Spending every second he could on the hill growing up he developed a true love for the sport. After retiring from racing at the age of 17 Henry decided that Coaching was the natural thing to do. Now 25 he had coached at the Caledon Ski Club for 4 years, working with the U14 Performance program. After having great success there he is looking for new challenges on the West (best) coast. Henry has his Level 3 CSIA, and Development Level Coach working toward his Performance Level over the next couple years.

Ronan Mac Con

U14 Lead Coach

Born to Irish immigrants that had never seen snow, I am indebted to them for trying skiing as a winter pursuit for the family. Yet another refugee from Ontario and Craigleith ski club, I was bitten by the ski bug hard and it has shaped pretty much all of my life decisions since. I grew up ski racing and when the world cup did not beckon I stayed in the sport by coaching through University and once graduated heeded the call to the mountains out west. I pursued my coach level 2 and progressed through the CSIA to level 4 and am currently a level 3 course conductor. Skiing is truly the greatest sport on earth. I hope to try and instill that love of the sport in your children and I thank you in advance for giving me that opportunity.

Jack Evans

U12 Lead Coach

Jack grew up away from the mountains in London, UK and found his love for skiing on dry ski slopes. He raced on the British national team and switched to coaching at age 19. He began his coaching career with the WMSC U16 team and moved on to manage Treble Cone Racing Team, New Zealand and Supreme Ski School, France.
