BOC Coach Bio
Name – Meghan Susslin
Tell us about yourself – a paragraph blurb please
I was born and raised in northern Vermont. I grew up in St. Albans, where I learned how to ski on my home hill, Hard’Ack Hill, at the age of 3. I started racing at the age of 7 at Smuggler’s Notch Ski Club and continued racing throughout my junior, high school, and college years. I graduated from Castleton University in 2015 with a B.A. in Multidisciplinary Studies, with a licensure in Elementary Education. I was on the Women’s Alpine Ski Team and Women’s Tennis Team all 4 years at Castleton. Over the years I developed a passion for ski racing, and now as a coach I hope to help and inspire young racers to develop their own love for the sport.
How long have you been with the BOC?
This is my second season as assistant U14 coach with the BOC.
Why do you choose to work at the BOC?
I chose to work at the BOC because I love the atmosphere of the club. It reminds me of how I grew up ski racing, which makes me feel right at home. It’s a small club with a big heart.
What do you do in the summer months?
During the summer months you’ll find me either on the tennis courts or on the family boat on Lake Champlain. I have worked as a camp counselor for the past 3 summers at Windridge Tennis and Sports Camp in Roxbury, VT. I love being outdoors, hiking, and playing different kinds of sports.
What is your favorite trail at Bromley?
My favorite trail at Bromley is Stargazer to Blue Ribbon to Havoc.
What do you love most about coaching at the BOC?
The one thing that I love most about the BOC is the passion that generates from all the athletes, coaches, and faculty. The energy and enthusiasm that projects from the BOC makes me love what I do, which is coaching young skiers to become better racers, and also help them develop a life long passion for this sport.
Is there anything else you would like our parents to know about you?
I love music! I am a HUGE Grace Potter fan, but I am a lover of all music genres. I was also a part of an acapella group at Castleton for 3 years called “Vocal Unrest.” When I’m not skiing you will find me searching through cookbooks to test out new recipes.
