Lexie Drechsel

U12 Head Coach

Lexie grew up skiing at Titcomb Mountain (300 vertical feet) in Farmington, Maine. Upon discovering her love for ski racing in the local Buddy Werner program, she began traveling to the bigger mountains of Maine (Saddleback & Sugarloaf) for some actual vertical. Lexie spent her summers training at Mt. Hood and a season in Sandpoint, Idaho skiing and competing throughout the west before attending Whitman College. After receiving her B.A. in Economics in 2012, Lexie moved to Jackson Hole and coached for a season prior to attending PT school at the University of Washington. In addition to pursuing her passion for movement and anatomy in PT school, she was also an avid weekend warrior and coached for the Stevens Pass Alpine Club (SPAC). This is Lexie’s 7th season ski coaching and she hopes to instill a lifelong love for the sport of skiing in all her athletes. In her free time, she enjoys skiing, biking, rock climbing, yoga, and spending time outdoors.
