Ski Instruction Testimonials
Peter is that “go-to” guy you can always count upon for clarity and considered thought in his counsel. Perhaps the most telling testament I can provide as to the value of his input is not simply that I continue to call upon him years after the term of his appointment expired, but that he willingly answers that call, and he continues to demonstrate the insights and alternative solutions that have proven to be so invaluable. For process solutions, strategic use of resources, and identifying objective measures within a sea of subjective data, Peter is a deep-well of conceptual thought.
—Ron Shepard, Executive Director PSIA-Central
I have known Peter over the past 40 years where we have both been a part of the Wilmot Mt. Ski School, where he has demonstrated a strong commitment to improving skiing and instruction. I have found him to be very knowledgeable regarding current ski methodology and its application to good teaching practices. He has always had an eagerness to learn new concepts which would benefit instructors and students. Peter has an excellent understanding of how children and adults learn and can recognize their strengths and weaknesses. Instructors have come to rely on him for assistance and help.
Peter has been nationally recognized for his skiing ability and knowledge. The Professional Ski Instructors of America organization selected him to serve as an examiner to certify instructors on their competences for over the past 30 years.
Peter has demonstrated the highest professional standards and conducts himself with honesty and integrity in all matters. He has strong work ethic and the high standards he sets for himself and others is commendable.
—Gary Leider, Wilmot Mt/Vail Resorts Snowsports Director
I have known Peter since the early seventies and we have shared many parts of our lives together. Peter has a brilliant mind and an extraordinary vocabulary, coupled with an exceptional imagination.
In the physical world he is a superb athlete, a competitive gymnast, a soccer player and coach, and a lifelong teacher of Alpine Skiing.
More importantly, he is a man of total integrity and trustworthiness. I am happy to recommend him as my friend.
