Maggie McNally, Team Gravity & Team All Mountain Jrs. Director

Maggie was born and raised in St. Helena, California. She grew up skiing the Tahoe area and any “mom and pop” areas on the western slope of the Sierras.

Maggie is very passionate about the development of kids as whole athletes. She wants them to have a strong fundamental base but also feel the confidence and strength that comes from meeting goals and accomplishments. Skiing offers a great opportunity to be in the flow. Working as a team but learning as an individual is an important skill that Maggie always hopes to impart to our youngest athletes.

Maggie’s personal passion soff the snow are her horses, her family (including her faithful Australian shepherd), and catching the last light at the end of a full day. She is a devoted equestrian and spends most of her days in the saddle April through November.

Maggie is USSA Level 100 mogul certified, USSA level 100 aerial, and is constantly learning and taking opportunities to improve herself both as an individual and as a coach.
