Alpine Coaches

Alpine Staff

AVSC coaches come from all over the world and a variety of racing backgrounds who embody our core values: commitment, teamwork and integrity. They are teachers, role models and mentors. Their dedication goes far beyond just on-hill coaching; they work hard for results but also know when to emphasize fun and skill development.  AVSC's legacy of athletic excellence is a testament to their excellence.

Torey Greenwood   Head Men's FIS Coach 

This will be Torey's tenth season with AVSC, and sixteenth year coaching. He keeps coming back for the athletes - he loves helping hard-working athletes who are dedicated to becoming the best they can be. Originally hailing from the Midwest, Greenwood moved to Winter Park, CO where he developed as a FIS and NorAm level skier. Torey is a USSA level 300 coach. When the weather warms up, you can find Torey camping, travelling, mountain biking, and if he's back home, hanging on the lake.

Casey Puckett  |  Head U16 Coach 

This season is Puckett's 6th year with AVSC. Prior to coaching, he spent 15 years on the US National Team. Casey is a five-time Olympian, competing in the games four times as an alpine racer and once as a member of the US Freestyle team (skier cross). He loves coaching because it gives him the opportunity to give back to the sport that has given him so much. He loves sharing his passion for skiing and helping kids actualize their potential. When he's not at AVSC, Casey is exploring his love/hate relationship with the game of golf, hiking, cooking (sometimes professionally), and spending time with his two daughters.
