Profile/Helga


                      After decades as a ski pro Helga still enjoys instructing at the Butternut ski
                      resort.  This profile is to condense here credentials as they relate to skiing. 

Helga was born in  Austria and grew up in a Mountain Village where going to school on skis was not unusual. To ski the intimidating Mountains rising from her backyard, she first had to climb them. Nature, mountains, skiing, were to become her destiny. So when she came to Innsbruck, the ski capital of Austria, she found her ski buddy Adi (profile) on the steepest terrain of the area, the Hafelekar. 

Helga moved on to Paris  to study at the Sorbonne, under an "auberge arrangement" with a family  and found out  months later, when Charles De Gaulle, President of France, came for dinner, that she was working for   Monsieur Farrat, the Finance Minister of France.

After Sorbonne, she took out a winter season to teach skiing at Stratton MT. VT,  and had to keep up  on skis with Adi, his brother Heinz and a range of high level pros. Heinz just came from Obergurgl AT, where he was ski trainer for the renowned University's - Austrian Ski Institute. The  Stratton Ski school under Emo Henrich was laced with top level Professionals, including the Olympic Gold Medal  winner Ernst Hinterseer, and Silver Medal winner Hias Leitner. It is not to say that she met their level, but that her skiing  was forget in a very challenging  environment.  

When she married Adi later, her compass was set for a life on skis. She  became his  co-assistant in all of his adventures, and was deeply immersed in ski training and the  ski industry  ever since.



                     No  wonder, that she wants her students
                     succeed beyond the ordinary.
