After an extensive search that saw a number of applicants from across the globe, and much interest from within Canada, especially BC, BC Alpine is pleased to announce the hiring of Montana Molyneux as BC Ski Team Assistant Coach.
Originally from Inglewood, Ontario and the Caledon Ski Club, and now residing in Fernie, BC, Molyneux is no stranger to ski racing in British Columbia. She has been actively involved in coaching in the province for the last ten years, starting at the Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club, before moving to the Sun Peaks Alpine Club where she served as Program Director for four seasons. More recently Montana was U16 Head Coach with the Fernie Alpine Ski Team, and in 19/20 worked for Alpine Canada as an Assistant Coach with the Para-Alpine Team. Montana has also been an important part of BC Alpine’s Girls Fast Forward camps and webinars for the past three seasons.
“I’m very happy we were able to hire Montana”, said Head Coach Nick Cooper. “The energy she will bring, and the wide range of coaching experience she has, make her the ideal candidate for this role. I know I speak for our whole group when I say we are all excited to get to work with Montana, and we look forward to seeing what she will bring to this team”.
Montana will start with the BC Ski Team immediately, and plans to join the team in Whistler next week for their second dryland camp of the summer. When asked about the new job, Montana said “I’ve always wanted to be part of a team that truly embodies hard work and commitment. This crew is one of those teams. I’m excited to contribute in every way I can, while continuing to learn and grow with the BC Ski Team.”
“Montana has been working her tail off in BC since she landed here”, said BC Alpine VP Johnny Crichton. “Her passion and work ethic fit perfectly with the BC Ski Team and we are very lucky to sign her! No question some outstanding BC coaches applied for this job, and with this coaching talent in the pipeline, the future looks bright for BC!”
