After working our west for 4 years running a concession for winter visitor services at Fairmont Hot Springs I moved back to Winnipeg. Operated my own shop in Winnipeg (Sun Ski & Sail) for 6 years. In 1986 went to work with Sports Experts and worked up to store manager. Stayed on when it was purchased by the Forzani Group. Have worked in almost every role at the store level including many years as store manager in a variety of locations. Spent some time as Regional Trainer for Man/Sask. Great people, great job, great benefits= great life. Its why I stay. Currently Sales Manager at Polo Park for Sporting Goods and the Shop By Appointment Specialist. Thi is a high touch retail position where I get to give the best that I've got in terms of service and knowledge to individual consumers. In my spare time I am the head coach of the Manitoba Masters Ski Club and also coach kids with the Summit Ski Club and train instructors for the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance.
