Chip is beginning his fifth year with the Dartmouth Women’s Alpine team, and his third as Director of Skiing. A three-time Olympian, National and World Junior Champion, and 13-year member of the U.S. Ski Team, Chip brings his passion for the sport and his experience as an athlete at the World Cup level to coaching the collegiate ranks.

After retiring from racing in 2006, Chip returned to Williams College where he finished his undergraduate degree in History and simultaneously served as Assistant Alpine Coach. While there, he was drawn to the challenge of teaching and motivating young athletes to compete at their best. After graduation, he returned to his home program in Stowe, Vermont to work at the junior level as Head J2 Coach and Alpine Director at the Mount Mansfield Ski Club. Now at Dartmouth, he enjoys the opportunity to foster individual development while pursuing competitive success as a team at the NCAA level.

Currently engaged in multiple leadership roles within the sport of skiing, Chip serves as president of the Eastern Intercollegiate Ski Association, and as an athlete representative on the USOC Athlete Advisory Council, USSA’s Alpine Sport Committee, and the Eastern Alpine Competition Committee.

Chip and his wife Marina live with their sons Cedar and Forest in Norwich, Vermont.
