Owner, Business Manager, Assistant Guide CSGA level 2, BA
Maria (pronounced "Mariah"), has been with Snowwater for 14 years. She is an assistant ski guide and oversees the business management of both Snowwater and Valhalla Powdercats in the off-season. After getting her BA at McGill University, she moved out west where she quickly realized that the seasonal lifestyle of forestry worker in the summer would afford her the opportunity to ski all winter long. She has worked as a canoe trip leader, wilderness first aid instructor, forestry worker, and ski patroller, where she met Patric over 12 years ago. Certified by the CSGA and CAA, she is also a telemark and alpine level II ski instructor.
