J.D. Thompson – Northwest Freeride Coach  “If I had to sum Nash up with one sentence: Hard work and dedication pays off.  I have watched this kid compete, taking lines that only the adults would even think about. Not only skiing sick lines but stomping the landings and controling his speed  Lining up the next hit and pulling off a huge 360.  Nash is always in a great mood and as a team captain it shows when all the kids get on the lift with a smile and leave the mountain with a smile.  It’s always nice to see the ones you coach, growing up and then you end up following them down the hill.”
