Skiing Director

samSam Collins is a true west ~coaster~, cali gal who grew up shreddin the gnar at Mammoth Mountain!

While not going on and on and on about how much she LOVES math (don’t even get her started on computing principle components for data matrices!), she loves, loves, loves, skiing and drinking coffee and backpacking and listening to grateful dead songs and drinking coffee and talking about wilderness medical scenarios and dancing in the sunshine daydream!

 

In particular, Sam is focusing this ski season on getting more beginners out on cross-country and downhill (resort) instructionals and encouraging more intermediate/advanced skiers to take up telemarking (#FreeTheHeelFreeTheMind), explore the Whites on backcountry trips, and romp in the woods on skate skis!!

 

Sam can be found anywhere where there’s even a slight inclination of snow, Bromfield-Pearson, the Rez (did I mention she loves coffee? PS, ask about her favorite ~secret~ menu item!), MIT, Tisch, and/or the Loj. She’s super friendly, and I hear that she’d lead you on a trip or invite you to **dad officer hours** if you reached out to her! She’s also super knowledgeable about everything skiing— so don’t hesitate to contact her at either samantha.collins@tufts.edu or (626) 660-5824.
