Lexie Drechsel

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 one season in Sandpoint, Idaho, skiing and competing throughout the West before attending Whitman College. After receiving her B.A. in Economics, Lexie moved to Jackson 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 10th season ski coaching. Off-snow she works as a physical therapist and is the owner of Mountain Physio & Wellness. In her free time, she enjoys skiing, biking, rock climbing, yoga, spending time outdoors, and volunteering for TCSAR.

Personal Philosophy

I coach to instill a lifelong love for the sport of skiing in all of my athletes. I strive to motivate others to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Appreciating the process and finding balance is paramount to success, which, for younger athletes, means working hard on the FUNdamentals. I coach to give back to a sport that played such an important role in my development, helping to foster the next generation of champions in sport and life.
