Known as Danger Dave to peers, admirers and fellow snowboard coaches, Boldwin hails from Vermont, where he grew up slashing the icy slopes of Stowe and Smuggler’s Notch. He began coaching seven years ago under the tutelage of US Team Coach, Bud Keene, at the Mount Mansfield Snowboard Club. Over the course of his career, Danger has helped young Vermont riders rise up through the ranks of snowboarding, coached at the Project Gold Camps and currently works as a private coach, traveling with some of the best up and coming riders to competitions around the world. His coaching ability is matched only by his karaoke talent, making him an ideal fit for both the on-hill experience at Windells as well as the Rock Band competitions back on campus.
Says Tim Windell, “I’m excited to have a person that has world coaching experience, a level three certification, and who coaches the best up and coming kids, at the head of our coaching program. I think it’s a big step forward. Having Windells’ Head Coach come from Project Gold Camp at Mammoth, right to Windells for the summer is great. It’s the ideal match.”
Danger agrees, “I was honored to receive the phone call from Tim, a legend in snowboarding and someone who has made many kids’ dreams comes true. To be involved in a program with such a highly respected individual in the snowboard community is something I am really looking forward to it. I’ve always valued the summer experience at Hood and excited to finally be a part of it. I’m excited to get in there with a bunch of kids that are ready to have fun and to help them progress their snowboarding while having the best summer experience at Hood.”
Welcome to the “funnest” place on Earth, Danger!
