Besides skiing, I love math, hiking, horseback riding, and the colour pink. I'm a graduate from Hope Secondary School and a member of the Canadian Conservation Corps. I've been coaching with the Manning Ski Club for two years and have been on skies ever since I can remember. Coaching is a way for me to share my love for the outdoors, while helping to create more confident skiers. This season I'm excited to see all my skiers push themselves to the upper edge of their comfort zones and grow not only as skiers, but as people. My goal is for every skier to feel the joy of skiing and return to their parents at the end of the day with a warm nose, smiling bright. "Skiing is the next best thing to having wings."
My name is Julius Brysch and I am a retired ski racer: I have raced for Manning Ski Club and I competed at the 2018 BC Winter Games as a member of the Sasquatch Mountain ski team. I have gathered a lot of skiing experience over those years. I became a ski coach because I want to share my passion for skiing with young athletes.
My goal for this season is to make sure that every one in my group stays safe and returns home unharmed and happy. In coaching, I want to focus on good skiing technique to develop confident skiers. Thank you for signing up with Manning Ski Club. See you on the hill!
I am excited to be a coach this season for Manning Ski Club! Skiing is my passion and in 2018, I was an athlete at the BC Winter Games as well as the Whistler cup. I love to hike, swim, bike, and most of all, ski. I hope to pass on my passion for skiing to a new generation. My three main goals this season are to make sure everyone goes home with a positive experience, everyone improves their overall skiing ability, technique and confidence, and finally to have fun and simply enjoy yourself! I look forward to seeing everyone on the hill!
Hey! My name’s Kara and I’m an all mountain free skier. I was a part of Nancy Greene when I was younger, and then started coaching for the Manning ski club for a few seasons afterwards. I’ve been teaching skiing since I was about 15 and have continued every season since. My skiing career started when I was about 2 years old and my passion for the sport has grown ever since. Growing up in the ski industry, my dream is to be able to teach and share my passion with younger generations. My goal for this coaching season is to help the skiers gain confidence in their abilities, create memories throughout the season and to show them that skiing and the mountains can be a safe release for how they might be feeling/going through outside of the hill .
I love skiing. Pretty much my entire life I have been on snow. I was part of the Nancy Green program at Hemlock for many years before becoming a racer for the Manning Alpine Team. I competed at the B.C. Winter Games and at the Whistler cup. I have had many memorable and amazing coaches over the years who helped me improve my skiing abilities as well as made it enjoyable and created a lifelong passion. I aspire to be like these coaches who have helped me grow. I want to create a fun and safe environment for young athletes to learn and thrive as well as develop the same love for skiing that I have. Along with skiing, I enjoy other outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking. I am currently in grade 12 and looking forward to university next year where I plan to get a degree in science.
