Jonathan Gold is leading the PreDevo program this year! Jonathan is psyched to be back for his 4th year with AVSC. He enjoys working with AVSC athletes because he loves seeing the kids start to realize how fun skiing can really be. In his words, "Some kids are timid and lack confidence to ski steep runs and moguls at the beginning of the year, and by mid to late season they are excited to ski all of the hard runs and are flying down them. I love seeing the transition where they realize they can do it. I also love seeing the kids start to practice and refine technique to ski these runs." Jonathan recognizes the role that skiing plays in the culture of the Roaring Fork Valley, and he takes a lot of pride in helping kids learn to ski well and enjoy all aspects of what it has to offer. When he's not with the kids, you can find him skiing, climbing, biking, backpacking, skateboarding, making art, surfing, or traveling.
