About

Skiing has been a passion of mine since I first spent a winter in Taos, New Mexico. The high mountains always call to me, enticing me to climb ever higher. Learning to ski was the best way to answer those calls. I am passionate about sharing what I've learned with others who also want to climb higher and have as much fun as possible on the way back down. My classes are packed with lots of fun and intuative learning, and always framed in by safety.

Beginner - Fix-It

Josh was highly recommended to teach my son whom had never skied. He did not disappoint. He had excellent patience and compassion while keeping the lesson fun. I'm very impressed at how quickly he learned. I don't think he ever felt discouraged as Josh focused on learning while ensuring he had a good time. Thank you for pouring into my son. Bless you

Intermediate - Kids Group Package Ski

Our son had Josh in TrailBlazers during the 2016-17 winter and loved his time with him. He learned a TON from Josh about all-Mountain skiing and had an incredible time with him! I’d highly recommend Josh!

Josh did a excellent job with my fiancé and myself, we couldn’t have asked for better. He far exceeded our expectations! Kept it fun and informative on how to become a good skier. He was awesome! We loved it and would like to take another lesson with him soon. Thanks Josh!

Beginner - Night Owl Private 2 Hour Ski

I took a one-hour beginner ski lesson with Josh. My previous skiing experience included three runs down the bunny hill the day before my lesson, but otherwise I'm brand new. I used to snowboard, so Josh was able to use my previous snow-sport knowledge and apply it to skiing. We mainly focused on learning to turn smoothly and what small movements in my knees and feet to use to achieve this. I feel like he did a great job of paying attention to my movements to understand my hangups and help me progress without pushing me to do something I wasn't ready to do. It's given me a lot of great basics to focus on as I continue to practice and learn on my own until my next lesson!
