Jeff Inouye has been a Summit County resident for 29 years and has spent most of that time as a member of BOEC’s Adaptive Ski and Snowboard team. Jeff started as a volunteer with the program during the 1992-93 season, became a full-time instructor in 1994 and Assistant Program Director in 1998. Jeff took over the role of Ski Program Director in 2017 and leads the program with passion and commitment to this day. Jeff says this about why he was inspired to choose a career in adaptive sports: “After my first year of volunteering, I fell in love with the organization and the adaptive ski industry. It was inspiring to be a part of an organization that is dedicated to changing the lives of its’ participants and their families.”
In his “spare time” Jeff shares his knowledge and expertise in the adaptive ski world in many ways including working with PSIA as National Team Selector for the Adaptive National Team, teaching adaptive OEC/Chairlift evacuation clinics for National Ski Patrol as well as the three ski areas where BOEC operates, is a member of the ANSI ASC B77 committee for passenger tramways regulating all trams, gondolas and chairlifts in the US and has worked for the US Paralympic national alpine ski team. We are fortunate to have someone with Jeff’s expertise and knowledge in the world of adaptive ski and snowboard lead the BOEC Adaptive Ski and Snowboard program!
