“I am excited to work with the coaches and athletes in all Freestyle disciplines,” Aldighieri said. “It’s important to build up the grass roots level, help build the sport, and maintain the professionalism of the SSWSC programs. This program has a history of excellence; my goal is to keep that excellence going at the highest levels from proper technical coaching for the youngest kids right up through our potential Olympians. I have enjoyed this sport for so long and really feel fortunate to have found a passion that I can pass on to others.”
Aldighieri has a long history of success as an athlete and a coach. He spent 7 years on the US Ski Team where he attained #5 ranking in the World Status. He won a World Cup Gold Medal in 1988 and was part of the 1991 World Championship Team, and then attended the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, France. After retiring from the US Ski Team, Aldighieri joined the Professional Ski Tour and became the first mogul skier in history to win a World Cup and a Professional Event. Post tour, Aldighieri worked for SSWSC as head coach of the Mogul Program before coaching the Canadian National Ski Team/Olympic Team and then with the Canadian Sport Institute in Whistler, British Columbia, as their Moguls Talent Development Coach. SSWSC is thrilled to see the return of Aldighieri to a position of leadership where his successes can influence the club’s program.
