NSST Girls Coaches
Picked out her first board in 1996, and quickly became a recognizable face at the ski hill in her home town of London Ontario. Within a few years she was entering rail jams, slope style, big air and halfpipe competitions locally and across Ontario. Spotted at a rail jam at Blue Mountain, she was sponsored by Ride snowboards as well as the Boardshop until she moved west.
Melanie has been working for NSST since 2008 and took over as head coach in 2011. Her coaching career began in Craigleith Ontario where she trained for three years before moving west. Like all Ontario kids who are only too happy to give up the ice and liftlines of the hills back home, she moved west in 2003 for the mountains of Whistler Blackcomb.
Now she lives in Vancouver balancing her time between school, an art/design career and snowboarding. Her mountain time is divided between Grouse, Seymour, and Whistler Blackcomb.
