Scotty McGee is the current PSIA Nordic Team Coach and Senior Manager for Nordic, Guides and Training at Jackson Hole Mountain Sports School. He's been deeply involved in skiing and outdoor education since his college days, when he first instructed cross-country skiing and supervised the telemark programs for the legendary Dartmouth Outing Club. He's taught skiing and guided in the Wasatch and Teton ranges for resorts, colleges, private outfitters, and his own business.
Scott is among the most widely certified members of the PSIA Nordic Team with certifications in ski teaching, avalanche, and guiding. He is Certified Level III in Nordic Track, Nordic Downhill, and Backcountry. Scott has been a regular contributor to The Professional Skier, and for SkiTrax, for whom he’s written a regular Tele Technique column featuring photomontages for the last five years. He’s also been widely published in other ski instruction publications.
Scott isn't just an academic: He thrives on competition, too, and has numerous top finishes in local tele competitions and a top 15 finish in an FIS Telemark World Cup GS.
A past president and racer for the US Telemark Ski Association, Scott has enjoyed applying the skills bestowed on him by racing to all-mountain skiing and backcountry.
Scott’s latest passion is backcountry skate skiing, and to date he has posted over 18 trans-Teton tours on light gear, and other distance tours in other ranges. Demonstrating he is an all-season mountaineer, Scott has been guiding for Exum Mountain Guides, and relishes in his summer training regimen of leading climbs and peak ascents in the Tetons.
