Boston Globe correspondent, Dan Egan, wrote a great piece about Bill Enos, of Campton, NH, coach of the US snowboard slopestyle team at the Sochi Olympics, and former coach at Waterville Valley’s BBTS Snowsports Club.
Bill Enos believes our accomplishments are the sum total of all the people we have met, places we have gone, things we have seen, and the experiences we share.
For Enos, there is no greater example of this than being the coach of the US snowboard slopestyle team at the Olympics, which won two gold medals in the sport’s debut at the 2014 Winter Games.
Enos fits seamlessly into the snowboarding world. His persona fits perfectly into the free spirited snowboard culture because he and it are one and the same. He can flip between conversations about the latest video game to the philosophy of peak performance as easily as shifting from toe side edge to heel side edge on a snowboard. His passion for the sport connects with teenagers as easily as it does with the “higher-ups” at the US Snowboard Association.
