About Greg

Program Director/Coach

Greg Daly is the program director and a Coach at DFT. An IFSA certified L100 coach and experienced AIARE certified backcountry skier, Greg has been skiing every month of the year since November 2012 (also known as "the streak"). Greg is also involved with Washington Biathlon, where he has raced, volunteered and currently creates and maintains an advanced statistic-driven website. Discount Ski Team has won the last two league championships in their local racing league, and Greg is thrilled to have kindled some great new friendships while learning to ski race as an adult. Greg regularly spends 60-80 days per year on the snow, and loves to share his passion and knowledge of skiing (and all of the gear and technique that goes with it) to anyone interested, no matter their ability level.

In My Own Words...

I am very excited to be starting something new with DFT, and I believe it's firmly in a style that Shane McConkey would have loved. I've been coaching my own daughter for several years, and I would love to cooperate with other parents to coach their kids as well. I've had fun coaching youth water polo and soccer in the past, but skiing is where my passion lies. I am on the snow year-round, pushing myself and having fun with my friends. I believe that freeride is one of the most spectacular and rewarding sports on the planet, and I love to share my energy and enthusiasm for big mountain riding with others. My goal is to keep every athlete safe and happy and to encourage them to push themselves so that they can realize where their talents and abilities can take them. Go Discount!
