Adrian Bergere, Freeride Big Mountain
Adrian grew up in upstate New York skiing the mountains of Massachusetts and Vermont. He had a “twilight” season pass at Jiminy Peak where he spent nights skiing boiler plate ice and getting blasted by snow guns. In high school Adrian started skiing at Mount Snow and Jay Peak. Adrian attended college at SUNY Geneseo, outside of Rochester, where he was the president of the ski and snowboard club. After graduating with a degree in geosciences in 2016, Adrian moved to Telluride, where he lived the ski bum dream guiding fly fishing in the summers and bartending and coaching freeride skiing in the winters. Now Adrian directs the San Miguel Watershed Coalition, working with local stakeholders to improve the environment and sustainability of the San Miguel River and its tributaries. Adrian still coaches freeride at TSSC on a part time basis.
