Erich says, ” Mt. Hood has the most experienced summer snow preparation crew in the world. Therefore, it is possible to ski 500-800 gates per day under top conditions. This is part of my trademark!”
Erich’s coaching philosophy is based on demonstration, basic technique, deliberate practice, natural motion and sequence of movements reinforced by repetition.
