U12 Alpine Coach [email protected]
Kelsey Voss – “I have been skiing since I was four and have been super passionate about it my entire life. I raced competitively for 7 years and was a part of the Vancouver Ski Team & toured a lot of racing circuits across Western Canada. I stopped racing at the end of my high school career when I sustained a knee injury, so I decided to put my heart into coaching instead. I got my CSCF level one, coached the Fraser Valley team at BC Winter Games in 2016 as well as coached the U14’s during Provincials at Red Mountain that same year. I will be entering my third season of coaching. I absolutely love the sport and really enjoy giving back to the racing community by sharing my professional advice.”
