Cedar grew up in the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club, and now his own three boys are following in his footsteps as he leads the U10 skiing programs. Cedar has many years of coaching under his belt, and understands very well the amazing opportunities that the SSWSC has to develop the U10 skiers taking full advantage of every bit of terrain at Howelsen Hill and Steamboat Ski Resort. Cedar is an innovative U10 leader, and did the legwork to fundraise for and set up the self-timer course that the U10 kids are able to use in Bashor Bowl during the season.
