John Gelb

Ski Instructor

John has been skiing long enough to remember rope tows, T-bars, and self-applied poma-lifts! He spent his "learn to ski" years skiing at Stratton, Stowe, Sugarbush and Mt. Tremblant. Discovered the beauty, challenge and powder of Utah in his 20's. 

When his kids grew up and moved west 10 years ago, he started working part-time as a ski instructor at Stratton. When he's not running his music business, you can find him at Stratton most weekends and holidays. March is always Utah month.
