About the Instructor
Jenny Hancock has been skiing since she could basically walk around 2.5 years old. She has been racing competitively for 8 years for Gilford High School, the Gunstock Ski Club and for University of Maine at Farmington (UMF). Throughout college she has student assistant coached the UMF men’s alpine team at USCSA nationals in Lake Placid, NY, interned for Gould Academy, and Mt. Blue High School in Maine working with all different ages and abilities of alpine athletes. Jenny continues her love and passion for alpine as she is going on her second winter season as the Head Coach for the Gilford Middle School alpine race team. Jenny is beyond familiar with the ins and outs of the sports specifics when it comes to the preparation that comes with skiing. You can’t just jump in the gate on the first day and think that you are going to be the fastest down that course. It takes time with off season-prep to feel as great as you can for that first day back on the slopes!
