Sophie Hewitt

2 Day Coach 

I grew up ski racing on the east coast in the White Mountains of New Hampshire for as long as I can remember. In High School, I attended Gould Academy, near Sunday River in Bethel, Maine. Here, my racing skill set strengthened. I moved out west to attend Montana State University where I skied for their Alpine Ski Team competing in the USCSA circuit. My passion for ski racing, while being involved in a skiing community only grew from there. While not skiing, I enjoyed volunteering with an adaptive ski program in Montana. 

Recently, I moved to Jackson to teach Spanish and Dual Language Arts at Jackson Hole Middle School. This will be my first season with Jackson Hole Ski and Snowboard Club and I am beyond excited to be with the 2 Day Race Team. I am dedicated to finding ways to work and be in the outdoors which led me to this position. When not on the hill, I spend the summer months as a Maine Guide, leading sea kayaking trips off the coast of Maine. I also fill my days mountain biking, trail running, fly fishing, and rafting.
