Founder & Organizer



I started shredding in 2008. I must admit, my first time out at Boreal, it took me 25 minutes to come down the bunny hill! I thought for sure I'd pick the sport up quickly, being an athlete and all, but NOPE, Boreal beat me up bad! I walked off the mountain and planned on taking everything back to Clark's Snowsports that still had the tag on it. I woke up the next morning sore as heck, and at 9 am sharp was back on the hill determined to NOT let Boreal win. Since then it's become not only a love, but a very strong passion. Norcal Snowboarders started off as a 4 man group, and has quickly grown to 3,000+ in just over a year. I get stoked on meeting new people, and teaching NEWBIES!! Nothing like watching a NEWBIE transform into GROOM BOMBERS, PARKIES, or POW DOGS. May your runs always be STEEP, and your POW waist deep!

Logistics Coordinator

I joined the group in 2012 as a skier and loved everything about the group! The people, the atmosphere, the organization, and the great time I had. I joined the organizers team in 2013 and I'm very happy to take part in the effort of bringing people that love Skiing/Snowboarding together and to the mountain. I tried boarding during the 2013-2014 season and I must admit - I am a snowboarder now... I fell in love with it, and haven't touched my skis since... During the summer I stay active with NCS - camping, backpacking, bike riding, wake boarding, and hiking.



Sacramento AREA

Snowboarding has become a passion for me. I joined the group in 2012. In two short seasons I went from a complete newbie to riding the wall in Kirkwood. I love that the group has riders of all skill levels. It's easy to find someone to ride with. I have met lots of amazing people and several have become lifetime friends


Asst. Organizer

I was a skier as a kid and learned to snowboard while in college, then adulthood and a career got in the way. Rediscovered my passion for snowboarding when I joined up with NCS during one of their first official outings, and my life hasn't been the same since. I enjoy introducing others into the group like I was first welcomed when I joined. When not snowboarding, I can be found hiking, running, camping, traveling, and anything else outdoors.



Sacramento AREA

During the chaos of college, I picked up my first snowboard and fell in love with the feeling of being out in the middle of no where flying down a mountain (or falling back then). I moved to Sacramento in 2012 and took my new hobby to the Tahoe slopes. After three season I was introduced to NorCal Snowboarders. I was quickly sold. In addition to a reliable ride up the hill, NorCal Snowboarders has brought me great friendships, new adventures, and even some additional outdoorsy hobbies.


Event Organizer for the
San Jose area

With growing up in Midwest, being in snow has always been a part of my life. Whether it be the days of myself and brothers playing football on the front lawn or the trips to the ski resorts of Wisconsin; skiing has been a passion that is in our family history. Originally did skiing for about 2 seasons, then when my oldest brother started to pick up snowboarding I got hooked. Ever since then I've never gone back to skis and always driven for the board. Moved to California in 2012 and pursue my passion even more with joining this group. The ability to go up almost every single weekend has been a dream come true, while previously only go up about 3 days a year. While on the mountain you may only recognize me by my jersey (Chicago Blackhawks), will pretty much take on any difficulty thrown my way. In all been doing this for over 15 years while also being a foodie and enjoy IPA beer, loving every minute of it.
