Meet a new member of our coaching staff, Sarah Coombs! Sarah is joining the Whiteface Alpine and Winter Term staff as a U16 Coach and Dorm Parent. She is a 2019 graduate of Northwood School and is currently attending McGill University remotely. Sarah ski raced at Gore and Whiteface and is excited to be a part of NYSEF in a different capacity!
“The (NYSEF) connections I have made through both programs (at Gore and Whiteface) is huge and all of my teammates hold a very special place in my heart,” she said. When asked about her new position, she mentioned “I am so excited to share all of the support, help, and advice I received as an athlete with my U16 team and provide support during a strange time in the world.” When asked about what she is looking forward to as a coach, Sarah said, “I am looking forward to learning the aspects of coaching and skiing itself that I did not grasp as an athlete and hopefully spread awareness of the most important topics I am learning now as a coach.” When Sarah is not thinking about skiing or studying, she is rock climbing, playing tennis, golf and painting. In the summer, she is a zip line guide and is usually on the lake boating with friends and family. Welcome to the team, Sarah!
