Seven Springs recently announced the appointment of a new Snowsports School Director, and the name may be familiar to DCSki readers. Iwan Fuchs is joining Seven Springs to oversee the new Snowsports School, which is replacing the Ski & Snowboard School. Iwan returns to the East Coast after spending the past couple years as a ski instructor in his native Switzerland. Prior to that, Iwan served as the Ski and Snowboard School Director at Pennsylvania’s Hidden Valley Resort. Iwan also writes for DCSki as a Guest Columnist, where he frequently shares his thoughts on the state of the ski industry.
Iwan is excited to join Seven Springs, where he will combine all segments of winter sports such as freestyle, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, telemark, and children’s programs under a unified school.
“As the snowsports school director, I will have many wonderful challenges,” said Iwan. “Being a part of a great organization makes it even more exciting. I am very confident about the resort and the position. Seven Springs is a forward-thinking organization where we are completely committed to our winter sports.”
Iwan has 17 years of teaching experience, including two at the number one ski school in Europe, in Engelberg, Switzerland. He studied mechnical engineering at Switzerland’s Berufsschule Lenzburg College and later received an international MBA from Pittsburgh’s Point Park University. Iwan has been married to his wife Elizabeth Anne since 1999, and has three children ranging in age from 4 months to 5 years: Cameron, Andre, and Johann.
