SCV names new director
Radamus, a native of Argentina, spent 1981 to 1984 coaching J2s for SCV and owns a home in the Vail Valley, making the appointment an easy fit.
“As soon as I heard there was an opportunity at Ski Club Vail, I was interested,” Radamus said.
The announcement came less than three months after SCV’s Board of Trustees asked former director Chip Woods to resign because of financial and philosophical differences.
“One of the responsibilities has been managing the budget of expenses,” Radamus said. “At this point, I’m still observing the financial aspect. I’m seeing the areas where we can make improvements. At this point, I’m not sure what those will be.”
Radamus joined the U.S. Ski Team coaching staff in 1984 and was the women’s slalom/giant slalom coach for two years before joining the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. He returned to the U.S. SKi Team in 1995 as the men’s technical slalom head coach and moved to the development program after the 1996 season.
“Aldo’s done a terrific job and we’ll miss him,” said Alan Ashley, vice president of athletics for the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association. “We asked him to put together a top quality program to help our emerging athletes reach their goals and he’s certainly done that. Ski Club Vail’s a very significant USSA competition club, which has given us Chad Fleischer and Sarah Schleper, among others, in the recent past.”
While Radamus took over the position July 13, he won’t be moving out to the valley until August. He will bring with him from Park City, Utah, his wife, Sara, and his four-year-old son River.
