Olympic Experienced Leadership
Northwood's Director of Alpine 滑雪, 汤米Biesemeyer, joined Northwood after a storied racing career and 15 years of alpine racing, 培训, and coaching experience. A resident of Keene, 纽约, and known within the ski community as "B.Z.," Biesemeyer began skiing at the age of three and had his first race at age seven when he joined the 纽约 Ski Education Foundation (NYSEF) program at Whiteface Mountain. At 12, Biesemeyer competed in J3 and J4 races but always had sights set on 美国.S. 滑雪团队. A victory at the '03 Junior Olympics started him down that path, and he then made his World Cup debut in 2010 and the Olympic Team in 2018.
