Mark Spinney

Freeski Head Coach
Mark is a CVA alumnus, who graduated in 2012. Coming to CVA opened Mark's eyes to his natural admiration for freeride skiing, as well as the many career paths skiing has to offer. His competition years involved NorAms, Free Flow Tour, Revolution Tours, and the Junior Olympics. Following graduation from CVA, Mark moved to Summit County, Colorado, where he experienced many local successes. Rail Jam victories and filming opportunities have allowed him to expand his free ride knowledge and experience in this ever-growing sport. His connections in the industry have led him to coach the Team Summit program. A handful of the athletes at the program had victories in the 2022 Nationals in Slopestyle, Halfpipe, and Rail Jam. He offers an approach of coaching that has disciplined roots and knowledge of the sport from its early days with a strong understanding of the sport today and where it is going. Serving as CVA’s Freeski Head Coach is an absolute honor. Mark is proud to join the good company of previous coaches Keegan Kilbride, Ted Porter, Jake Payson, Noah Labow, Robby Sullivan, Jesse Duncan, and Nate McKenzie.
