Jake Cunningham

From: Melbourne, Australia

I am an instructor and I teach both skiing and snowboarding. I am originally from Melbourne, Australia where I started snowboarding and racing when I was 12 years old at Mt Buller. I am a Level 2 CSIA, Level 2 CASI and Level 1 Park Instructor. I love TC for its off-piste terrain and love teaching people how to ride it!

Dane Verity

From: UK

I am a level 3 CASI snowboard instructor and also a level 1 Ski instructor. I can teach you just about anything you'd like to try on a snowboard, I especially enjoy free ride, bumps and buttering. I have been teaching for 8 seasons now and my home mountain is Big White, BC Canada. My favourite thing about working at Treble Cone is the cliff drops and watching the Kea's being cheeky. If you fancy coming for a rip with me drop in and say hi.

Natasha Ellwood

From: UK

Having qualified as an Instructor in September 2013, I have been teaching back to back winters ever since. This will be my 4th winter teaching at Treble Cone and currently travel to Big White Ski Resort in Canada for the northern hemisphere. While I enjoy teaching any lesson, I specialise in coaching Women’s Freestyle and teaching Kids Freeride programmes. I come back to Treble Cone year after year because of the amazing terrain, fantastic weather and the skilled team that I work with. It’s a world class place to develop skills and has the best views New Zealand has to offer.

Michael Shenkel

From: USA

I am a Chronic Alpine Skiing Fanatic who specialises in empathy. I have heaps of qualifications plus a few DSQs and a lot of DNFs. This will be my 69th season plus some other educational stints. My home resort is TC- but I feel at home whenever I am in the mountains. The best thing about TC though is the love that people have for each other.

I grew up skiing at Sunshine Village. I have been teaching skiing for about 10 seasons and specialize in coaching young athletes and putting fearful clients at ease. I have a level 2 Canadian coach and instructor certification, and have recently passed the ski portion of my level three instructor's certification.

From: UK

I have been teaching at Treble Cone for the last 8 seasons, working with Team TC, TCRA, SOFA, Events as well as the Ski School. I am now the training manager for Treble Cone ski school. I am qualified through the BASI instructor system and hold their level 4 ISTD qualification. I also have my equivalence and Carte Pro within the French Instructor system. I live and work in Val d'Isere in the Northern Hemisphere winters with New Generation Ski School. I love skiing and riding at Treble Cone. The world class terrain ensures there is always a challenge to overcome and improve upon. My favourite runs at TC are morning carving laps down main street, or finding a fresh spine in powder bowl on a powder day before work.

Aly Greene

From: Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK

I grew up skiing in the French Alps. I came to Wanaka in 2012 to complete my instructor training and have been doing back to back winters ever since. I have my NZSIA level 2 instructor qualification as well as the teaching portion of my NZSIA level 3. Alongside this I also has my Avalanche Skills Training level 1 and 2. I enjoy taking women specific ski coaching clinics as well as technically focused lessons for those eager to improve their ski ability. Treble Cone is the closest thing to a home mountain for me, I return year after year because I believe TC is an amazing mountain that combines, world class skiing with an awesome and friendly small mountain feel.

Sam Lee

From: New Zealand

I started skiing at three years old and I’ve been on a mission to go fast and jump off stuff ever since. I have been competing in Freeride for almost ten years since I was 16, and I am now lining up my third season on the Freeride World Tour in 2019.
I became certified as a L2 ski instructor in my last year of high school so that I could pursue freeride and this is my eighth season teaching with the last three coaching freeride. Along the way I have passed Kids Cert L1 and Freeski L1.
I love working at TC because the terrain is off the chain and the view is beautiful!
My favourite run is dropping the summit rocks then hitting Crags into Shooter!

Bryan Cleaver

From: Canada

My specialty is using cognitive understanding to help develop and inspire students. My qualifications include NZSIA Trainer/Examiner, CSIA Level 3, ISIA Avalanche Guide and CASI Level 1 and I've been teaching for 24 seasons over 16 years. My home resort is Niseko United in Kutchan, Japan where I guide, train and teach.
My favourite thing about Treble Cone would have to be the terrain offered off the 6. Main Street is by far the best groomer.

Louis Charnaud

From: Brighton, UK

I grew up skiing in the US and Europe. I hold a level two British Association of Ski Instructors certification and have passed the technical portion of my level three. I specialise in teaching freeride and capturing all the action in the mountain with my camera for my signature ski films. I love TC because of the accessibility to big mountain terrain and I enjoy that there is always someone to go for a rip with. This is my 5th season at Treble Cone working as a coach for the Team TC Freeride team.
