I am tickled to share a poem that was recently published in SnowPro, the "official publication of the Professional Ski Instructors of America Eastern / Education Foundation." It was originally written for a newsletter I write for the Blue Mountain Learning Center, but I changed our director's name, Joe, back to the first person of the original. Enjoy!
Mogul Queen Jeanne Weiser started skiing when she was 17 at Apple Hill, in Allentown. Her first time was “not fun,” as she was “falling all over the place.” She has come a long way since then! She has skied many different places and, although she is approaching retirement age, is one of the best bump skiers around!
This is the first of a series of featuring individual instructors. Do you know Joe? Enjoy!
Joe Forte has been working at Blue Mountain Resort for just over half his life. Starting as a teenager, he spent one year in the security department before he switched to the education side and never looked back.
Welcome! This site was originally intended to focus on skiing and snowboarding, but I've included marathons and some family adventures as well. Thanks for visiting.
