With the memory of a super weak 2017/18 winter on the minds of some the snow sports students, the hope was that this season would deliver sufficient powder on the slopes. Working with more than a 72-inch base, the weather did not disappoint and prime conditions made for a great overall snowsports season.
Accompanied by fresh powder consistently dropping throughout the season, students spirits were high as they enjoyed weekends at Brighton Ski Resort and practices at the Wasatch Academy snow hill terrain park built by Snowsports Director/Coach Chris Nester. Nester states, “It has been such a good season for snow that we will be able to enjoy skiing on our hill until June.”
Nester raised the already high standard of excellence for the snowsports program. Nester’s skills in creating a world-class ski and snowboard terrain, excellent coaching for a wide range of skill levels, and lots of bluebird, spring-like days all added up to a snowsports program that was in high demand resulting in a 116% growth of the program. “We really had an exceptional winter season,” said Nester.
Although the season is wrapping up, Nester along with WZRD Media have a project in the works to keep those fresh powder days in mind through the rest of the year. Nester states, “We had the opportunity to capture what it means to be part of the Wasatch Academy community and the Snowsports program. I am excited to share the project with everyone soon!”In the meantime, follow the Wasatch Academy Snowsports Instagram page @wasatchacademy to stay in the loop about all things snowsports at Wasatch Academy.
