Sophie has attained a personal training, coaching certification, and a BS in Physical Science, while attending the University of New Hampshire as an NCAA athlete. She has a personal passion for the outdoors and fitness. Sophie has been coaching skiing for 6 years. She has been coaching in the Northern Division for Bridger Ski Foundation for 3 years, as well as building ski conditioning programs for developing ski racers. Her goal as a coach is to bring out the personal strengths in each athlete, and help athletes reach their full potential in what they love to do.
Originally from Montana, Tara’s love of skiing began the instant she stepped into her skis at age two. After some successful junior ski racing results, she was named as an invitee to the U.S. Development Team in 2011. Her love of free-skiing ended up influencing her decision to move on from ski racing, and she relocated to Salt Lake City where she is currently finishing up a mathematics degree at Westminster College.
Tara continues to compete in skiing, and recently won the Big Mountain Skier X Rahlves Banzai Tour. When she isn’t skiing at Snowbird, she loves to backcountry ski, mountain bike, and climb. Tara continues to share her passion for ski racing with younger athletes as a coach at Mt. Hood in the summer after she returns from commercial fishing in Bristol Bay Alaska. She is passionate about teaching others, whether it be introducing women to backcountry skiing, avalanche safety, and mountain biking, or tutoring young girls to be successful and confident in school.
Born in Jackson, Wyoming, Hadley grew up playing every sport she could. From skiing, to figure skating, to volleyball and soccer. Her early and varied exposure to sports created the foundation for an active life; however, her early efforts were all focused towards a career in the restaurant and hotel industry. After spending six years on the east coast for college and work, Hadley left her original career path and returned to skis and big mountain skiing. She spent last winter competing on the Freeride World Tour, finishing 6th overall.
