In this episode Nicole and Sarah host Halley O’Brien, an avid snowboarder who has made outdoor adventuring her career as an on-camera personality, writer and producer. Halley is a mother of 3 boys (she just recently welcomed twins!), is the founder of The Snow Report and has her own podcast (Beyond the Apres).
Halley tells us about learning to snowboard at Mountain Creek in New Jersey and falling in love with it immediately - even though her tailbone did not :)
Halley walks us through her career path from a communications major to pounding the pavement at ski resorts and making her way into the ski industry business.
Halley started at Mount Snow as their on mountain “Snow Reporter”, and that led her to found The Snow Report. Halley moved out to Colorado and started her own production company - working with Vail Resorts, The Weather Channel, Snow Country and then pitched her own show to Ski Magazine.
Halley makes fast paced and super funny videos on all sorts of ski and snow related topics - from pond skimming to beer and gear reviews - we found ourselves laughing out loud when we tuned in.
Halley and her husband are teaching their son to snowboard (starting at 13 months!) at Mountain Creek on a Burton Riglet board, a board designed specifically for the tiniest rippers.
Halley now has a number of roles back at Mountain Creek and at Big Snow American Dream (indoor ski resort in New Jersey). Mountain Creek has a great ski school with progress based learning features that help guide new skiers as they build their basic ski skills. Mountain Creek has night skiing and is only an hour outside of NYC.
