Tony has been working in youth outdoor education since 1993. He started teaching skiing in 2000, and with the SSWSC in 2004. He grew up in western New York where he first stepped in a halfpipe in 1994, and slid his first rail in 1999. Since then he has also worked as a sailing, surfing, bodysurfing, sea kayaking and adventure learning instructor. Over the last few seasons Tony has been invited to join the US Freeskiing staff at the USSA Gold Camps. During the summers Tony works as the Assistant Director for the NYSSA summer camp for at risk youth.
“My goal is to create good people with a respect for the power of nature, and with a love of skiing. If an athlete has that, success will follow. I also believe that learning from all of the skiing and snowboarding disciplines gives us the creativity to be progressive freeskiing athletes.”
