Andy Lex announced as JHSC Freeride Program Director

JACKSON, Wyo. — The Jackson Hole Ski & Snowboard Club announced that Andy Lex will become the Club’s new Freeride Program Director. Lex replaces Rob LaPier who had been with the Club for 11 years prior to departing in August.

“I’m honored to be welcomed back to the JHSC to serve in a new role.  I’m humbled to build upon the successes of my predecessors, and I look forward to working toward the Club’s vision of becoming a world-class competitive program.” Lex said

Andy is returning to JHSC after a four-year break in which he earned his Master’s degree in Educational Leadership and Policy. He will be building upon eight years of prior experience coaching and leading JHSC athletes in our community and the Intermountain Division. 

Lex is a Wyoming native and began his experiential educational career at the age of 17 when he started leading trips in the Wyoming backcountry as a rock-climbing guide.  After high school graduation, Andy moved to Steamboat, Colorado to pursue his passions of snowboarding, kayaking, and climbing.  Andy spent two summers working for High Cascade Snowboard Camp in MT. Hood, Oregon as terrain park builder and would sneak back to coach when not guiding in the Rockies.  

While in Colorado, he worked for Burton Snowboards managing their Demo Tour and served as a product tester.  Finally, at the age of 23, Andy took a hiatus from ski-town life to attend Colorado State University where he earned a BS in Business Administration.

Andy believes that there is no club program better than their coaches, and emphasizes the importance of investing in coaching development. He feels that great coaches can mentor, inspire, stimulate, and engage their athletes.  Andy’s educational guiding principles include transformational learning, peer leadership, and respect for people, places, and environments.

“My wife Nina and I are excited to return to Jackson, and we can’t think of a better place to raise our child.  I want to thank all the prior coaches, families, and athletes that supported me in my formative years of coaching. I am excited to once again work with this outstanding community.”
