About

I have coached for years and enjoy sharing my knowledge. Let's have some fun and become a better skier. I teach here at Payette Lakes Middle School and know how to relate to all age levels.

I have been affiliated with Tamarack since 2004. Day one I was on chair 13, skied the mountain and fell in love with it.

Mike was our instructor as part of a four week homeschool program. My children and I were in the same group, and Mike was so great! He was patient and upbeat the whole time. He gave clear instruction and made it easy for all of us to feel comfortable and increase in our abilities. It was clear that he loves skiing and wants everyone else to as well.

Mike is an incredible ski instructor! He is phenomenal with kids; we’ve had all four of our kids with him and he’s taught them great fundemantals while also making sure they have a great time! Always has a smile on his face - our kids love him!!!

Mike is fantastic! I can't rave enough about him! We first met him in 2016 when my son took lessons from him. We live out of state and only get to ski around Christmas break. My son had a bad experience with an instructor in 2015 and wasn't excited about skiing. And then he had a lesson with Mike and everything changed. Mike quickly figured out how to work with my son. My son went from only wanting to ski beginner runs and cat tracks to confidently skiing intermediate runs with great turns in just a couple lessons! We were amazed at the progress! When we planned our ski trip in 2017, our son asked if he could have more lessons with Mike for Christmas. After his lessons this time, he can now ski expert runs! Mike not only drastically improved our son's ski skills over two years, but he also helped our son find his confidence in those skills. My husband took a couple lessons from Mike too and also finished the lesson with better skills and more confidence. We highly recommend Mike and will keep coming back to him!

Mike has been a ski instructor for my daughter for several sessions. He is very encouraging and with his assistance, she has progressed in her comfort level and abilities in regards to skiing. When we have seen Mike outside of her lesson time, he always says hello. My daughter has really enjoyed working with Mike. We would highly recommend him as a ski instructor.

Mike was our ski instructor for myself, my wife at two teenage sons.....one who has autism. Mike was great and very patient with my family. His background in special education was evident. Everyone enjoyed the experience and we were all skiing down the hill by the end of our session. I would recommend Mike as an instructor to anyone interested in learning to ski or looking to increase their abilities. Thanks Mike!
