FAYSTON, Vt. – Green Mountain Valley School (GMVS) is thrilled to announce Colin Rodgers as the new Nordic Director. Colin returns to his native Vermont from the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation (SVSEF), where he was the Gold Team Head Coach for five years. The Gold Team is a professional cross-country ski racing team that offers year round programming for elite athletes to compete and achieve internationally.
Colin brings a wealth of knowledge and success to GMVS as the Nordic Director. Prior to coaching the Gold Team, he was a Gold Team athlete from 2006 through 2011, winning a USSA Super Tour Sprint Cup and representing SVSEF and the U.S. in multiple World Cups. Colin graduated from Middlebury College in 2004 and was Captain of the Middlebury Ski Team.
“Everyone involved in the search was really impressed by Colin’s background, accomplishments and commitment to developing top-level skiers. He brings great energy to the program, and we are especially fortunate that he has worked with many GMVS athletes in the past. I am confident that Colin will step in and have an immediate impact on the program that Garrott Kuzzy and Katrina Howe have built up over the past year,” said Tim Harris, Interim Head of School.
