Our Free Ski Program Coach Ryan O'Malley
I was born and raised in Mammoth Lakes, CA. I started skiing at the age of 3 and grew up in the race program at Mammoth. I competed extensively in the Far West region and made it to Junior Olympics as a J3 and J2. After getting a bit burned out on racing, I joined the newly created "freeride" team that Mammoth Mountain started and I competed in halfpipe, slopestyle, big air, skier cross and big mountain competitions. Through both alpine and freestyle competition, I was able to travel and complete across the western US and into Canada. I am grateful to have grown up in a ski community and be part of a sport that helped shape who I am today. I am now passing my lifelong love of skiing on to my children and look forward to another fun season of coaching with a great group of kids and staff at Mt Shasta.
