Ski Tuning 101 with Coach Leah Defilippo

There is a lot to learn about tuning and we are so lucky to have coach and tuning expert Leah Defilippo sharing some of her tips in the video below!

Leah DeFilippo grew up in Elmira, NY, and started skiing at 3 years old. She began racing for Swain Resort, then skiing for Greek Peak Ski Club until she was 14. She then skied for New York Ski Education Foundation (Whiteface) for her high school years and graduated from Northwood School in 2022.

Leah is currently racing as an elite FIS athlete and training with Rogan Connell Elite Racing, which is based out of Sunday River, ME. She has been attending Keely’s Camp since she was 12 years old and was a Camp intern in 2021. We were lucky enough to have Leah join as a coach this summer at our Mt. Hood Ski Racing Camp!

Tuning can make such a huge difference in your skiing and is a super important skill to learn! Coach Leah also put together this written version of her Tuning Guide that you can bring to a race or ski camp and use on the go!
