Steamboat Magazine recently ran a story about Adam Chadbourne, former Athletic Director for the Waterville Valley Academy and WVBBTS, and new Alpine Director for Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club.
“Adam Chadbourne did not go home after spring break this year. He was in Florida on a family vacation when he got a call from the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club offering him the coveted position of Alpine competitive director. It was the end of April and the job was supposed to start on May 15. The self-professed type A personality got into his car and drove west. He actually arrived early and started work on May 1.
“I looked at the scope of work and thought, ‘There is no way I can wait another couple of weeks,’ so the family went home as planned and I drove out,” Chadbourne says. His wife, Alison, and their daughters, Emma, 9, and Anya, 7, moved from their home in New Hampshire in the summer to join him.
“Chadbourne, who started skiing competitively in his late teens, does not feel daunted by the legacy of his predecessors. The only non-Olympian to take the mantle in decades, he brings a different skill-set to the table. “Adam knows how to develop great ski racers, and his approach is one that I think our families who value the development of the whole person will appreciate,” Says Jon Nolting, SSWSC athletic director.”
Best wishes to Adam and his family at Steamboat.
