Welcome to WNTR

I’m Chris Rogers, a ski and snowboard instructor, coach, guide, and snowboard instructor certification trainer, examiner, and national team member. I’m based in Vail, Colorado in the northern hemisphere winter, and Cardrona, New Zealand for the southern hemisphere winter.

I’ve spent most of my life skiing and snowboarding, and my goal is to help you connect with a passion for sliding on snow!

Adults, teens, or children (even really young children), freestyle skill development, park and competition coaching, instructor training and development – you name it. Many of my clients book me to take care of the entire family – ski and snowboard and all ages. Maybe I’ll ski with mom and son in the morning and then ride with dad and daughter in the afternoon. I’m available to travel to you to coach and guide anywhere in the world.

Whatever you need, we can make a plan to create your ideal ski and snowboard vacation!
