Head Coach Scott Tanner

Scott Tanner of Steamboat Springs joined the Colorado Mountain College ski team as head coach in 2018.

A New Hampshire native, Tanner has coached ski racers in Colorado for the past 25 years, initially for Team Breckenridge in Summit County and then for the Steamboat Spring Winter Sports Club.

While working as head FIS coach at both of these programs, Tanner coached many future college racers and NCAA All-Americans.

More recently, he coached for the U.S. Ski Team’s National University Team, which was composed of the top collegiate racers in the country.

Tanner is focused on CMC’s current ski racers as well as actively recruiting the next generation of college racers for CMC. “I’m looking for athletes who want to continue ski racing at a high level, while earning a college degree,” he said.

Assistant Coach Ali Pougiales

During Ali’s ski racing career her favorite nickname was “Hurricane” as she always went full force down the course. Now, as assistant coach for the CMC Eagles, she encourages her athletes to do the same.

Ali graduated from the University of Oregon in 2018 with a BA in Landscape Architecture. She loved going to school in Eugene as she discovered that some people just get wet from the rain while others feel it — or in her case, kayak, bike, ski, and garden in it. During college she fell in love with plants and now runs her own business, Ali Marie’s Healing Gardens LLC. She hopes to take her experience from studying Japanese Gardens in Japan as well as gardening experience from the Denver Botanic Gardens to connect more people with plants.

When she’s not on the hill with the team, you’ll likely find her nordic skiing with her dog Eddy Rio, skiing some backcountry pow, fixing up her Scamp Trailer or practicing Japanese.

For the 2019-2020 season Ali is looking forward to being a supportive assistant to Tanner, getting the athletes psyched and enjoying Old Man Winter!
