Sandy Eneguess has joined Dublin School as its Head Alpine Ski Coach. Sandy, a native of Peterborough, started skiing at age three. He started skiing on the Peterborough high school ski team as a 7th grader through a special exception. At age 15 he also began competing in canoeing and kayaking placing in the top three in the US Nationals in three different canoeing events.
In 1979, he turned ski professional and raced on the American Pro Ski Tour throughout the US, Canada and Europe. He began coaching while still racing with Lathrop ski camps and the Norwegian Development team. After knee reconstruction surgery in early 1983, Sandy turned to ski area management. At Temple Mountain he installed NH’s first Quad chairlift, lights and snow making. He was instrumental in uniting the NH ski areas into one marketing and lobbying group as Ski NH, serving seven years as president of the organization as well as representing small ski areas on the National Ski Area Association. He received life-time leadership achievement awards from Ski NH and NSAA (National Ski Area Associations).
In 1998, he returned to his roots as a ski coach immediately earning the highest available international coaching credentials. He has coached for the US Ski team national development summer camps in Norway. He coached at Cannon, was head coach and program director at Waterville Valley and at Proctor Academy where he was the head women’s FIS coach. He was able to coach both his daughters as they raced during their NH school years taking them to Austria, Canada and France for training. He has organized and coached at preparatory ski camps in France, Canada and Chile.
Sandy loves the life sport of skiing which he believes teaches kids to be self-reliant and to generally make good choices while also exposing them to other cultures and the harsh lessons taught by mother nature.
