May 4, 2011
After a two-year stint as freestyle director of the International Snowboard Training Center (ISTC), Ben Boyd has returned to Ski and Snowboard Club Vail as snowboard program director.
A snowboard teacher and coach since 1997, Ben began his career at Mt. Blue Cow, Australia. Starting in 2000, he worked for the Vail Snowsports School in the Devo program and after two years began the snowboard program at SSCV where he remained until 2009.
“I am super excited to be back at SSCV,” said Boyd. “The club and Aldo (Radamus) were instrumental in the development of my career, and I have always considered it where my heart is. I feel that with the infrastructure and leadership that the club provides, as well its partnership with Vail Resorts, we will create the best snowboard program and training center in the world.”
Having been part of developing young snowboarders to USASA podiums, as well as, working with Vail Ski and Snowboard Academy 2010 Olympian Faye Gulini and other elite athletes such as JJ Thomas, Brett Esser, and Brennen Swanson, Boyd has throughout his career sought to get the best out of himself and all those he works with regardless of age or ability.
“Boydy is one of the true professionals in snowboarding,” said SSCV executive director Aldo Radamus. “It is great to have Ben back with SSCV to influence the snowboard team and the club as a whole. Ben is widely respected in the snowboard community for his knowledge, enthusiasm and most of all his caring and compassion for the kids.”
