Coaches

I have over 35 years of experience as an alpine ski coach at various level from NG to FIS. During my coaching career, I was fortunate to work with some of the best skiers in the province. I am from a ski racing family that had success at the provincial and national level.

I am an athlete who starting racing at the age of 8, at Edelweiss. I continued on racing until the 2nd year of U16. I was able to quality to attend several provincial racing events. More recently, I succeeded the CSCF Entry level. I am actually in grade 12 and I just love skiing, day in day out.

I raced FIS on the Outaouais Ski Zone team (now called NCO). I coached 5 years at various levels from U12 to Masters at Edelweiss and Mont Cascades. I have 3 kids in the program from U10 to U16. I am looking forward to the best season ever at Edelweiss.

Dave Waldrum

U12 Coach

I started skiing at two years old and promptly threw myself on the ground crying and yelling to be taken off the hill because it was cold and scary. Eventually the instructors calmed me down and we got down the hill. Every run since then has started out better.

I have raced, worked as an instructor, spent a few years exploring big snow on the west coast, and been fortunate to ski many of the worlds famous ski resorts. Now I have come full circle, back to the mountain I grew up on, to be apart of the racing team and share some of my experience with the next generation of skiers.

Although not as fast as I once was, Mondays and Wednesdays I can still be found in the gates with other coaches or with the Masters Race Series trying my best to rekindle some of the old magic.

Patrick Corcoran

U14 Coach

I started skiing on Montreal’s Mt. Royal at two, and grew up on the slopes of Tremblant when there were still single chairlifts. I’ve skied year-round at over a hundred ski areas from the Andes to Zermatt.First joined the Edelweiss Race Team as a parent and continued as a coach when my two daughters stopped racing. I started my official racing career late, in CEGEP then at Université de Montréal, where I competed across Quebec for seven years. I’ve been involved in the Ottawa Masters for over a decade.I’m a former racer, but more importantly, I am a passionate skier and a parent. My main objective is to help the kids become better passionate skiers, which will last for years after their last race.

Greg Douglas

U14 Coach

I started skiing over 40 years ago, and the sport has always been a vital part of my life. I’ve had the pleasure to challenge myself at nearly all the major ski centres across Canada. As a former member of the Canadian Ski Patrol, I’m also very attentive to hill safety. I approach ski instruction certification as a means to improve my own technique and teaching abilities, thereby having the tools to share my passion for skiing with my own children. I’m excited to begin my first year as coach for the Edelweiss Nancy Green Program. The centre’s varied terrain, as well as the important investments in hill grooming and lifts, will go a long way towards helping me build the same love of skiing in my students that I have always enjoyed.

Raymond Lee

I was hooked on skiing after my first experience at Mammoth Mountain, California. I have been teaching skiing at Edelweiss since 2003. I started working with the race team in 2012, using my experience to help new coaches and the racers. I love working with the racers and skiing fast.

U10 Coach

Did someone say snow?…Count me in! It’s all been about skiing for me since I was 6 years old… Mt first skiing experience was at Edelweiss, on the orange T-bar (remember that?). After following teaching programs, I joined the Edelweiss Racing Team and raced throughout the Region as it continues to being done today. At age 15 I joined the Edelweiss Ski School and started teaching kids – later, I joined the Edelweiss Racing Team, but….as a coach this time! Day after day, I continue transmitting to kids of all ages the passion I have for ski, training and ski racing, as we work together at making the best possible alpine ski racing team of the area! I hope I can one day share some of my passion with you and your children.
