Jordan Rupe: Jordan grew up snowboarding and mountain biking in the beautiful mountains around Durango, CO. Upon graduating from Fort Lewis College in 2009, he was mountain biking at the proffesional level. Still, his desire to learn more about snowboarding led him to get his AASI Level II certification as well as his AASI Freestyle accredation. To Jordan, coaching is beyond just snowboarding. It is setting a strong foundation of character to promote dedication, determination and mental strength within each student. Once the physical and mental are well rounded, then riders can excel on and off the hill.
