Gary began his skiing career in earnest when he was hired as a ski instructor at Snow Summit for the 1973-74 ski season. He became the highest scoring Associate Certified ski instructor in 1973 and quickly began coaching, working with the Snow Summit race department from 1977-1985. He got his first USSA Alpine Coach's certification in 1981. Gary raced USSA Far West Masters, LA Council Races and Nastar until 1991. After a 10 year hiatus pursuing business and other interests Gary came back to racing in 2001 joining the IMD Masters program. In 2002 he started coaching recreational racers and by 2004 had founded the Modern Ski Racing Program. Gary obtained his USSA Level 100 Alpine Coach re-certification in 2004. Today Gary is working towards his USSA Level 200 Certification. He continues to develop the MSR Progression based on the "Waist Steering" fundamental concepts, race clinics and camps with such notables as Warren Wilkinson, long time personal coach to Erik Schlopy, current USST member.
