Skiing Experience
Having started skiing on my 2nd birthday, this season will mark 31 years of great times in the mountains. As a former Super-G and Giant Slalom racer, I love carving beautiful arcs down the canvas of untouched slopes. After relocating to Japan from California in 2013, I have had the privilege to ski this country's unbelievable mountains from the northern powder fields in Hokkaido all the way down to the long cruisers of the Kansai region.

As a lifelong skier, I view just about everything through the lens of skiing. I hope to share this passion for the sport, the area and Japan's mountain culture with you during your holiday!
Teaching / Guiding Experience
After 6 years of racing on the USSA Juniors circuit, I began ski instructing at my home ski area, Mammoth Mountain, California during the winter of 2005-06. Borrowing from my racing background, I focus on helping students develop a solid technical foundation through measurable results in order to give you the tools necessary to enjoy the sport to the fullest.

Whether you are looking to run drills to expand your skillset or simply looking for a guide to show you the area, I'm looking forward to making some turns with you!
Sorry, I don’t work with Kids under 7

I was looking for a few hours of private ski instruction since I recently started to ski again after snowboarding for a long time. Donald was excellent at giving me tips, guiding me through some new techniques, and sharing his vast knowledge and expertise in skiing, the industry, and the area. He was also fun to hang with on the mountain. I would highly recommend seeking him out if you're planning to ski in Japan.
