Tim Shepard

He was brought up skiing the icy slopes of New England from a young age. Started alpine racing when he was about 9 and raced until he was 14.
When he realized he was never going to be big or fast enough to compete in the alpine racing world he started racing Nordic and he would Telemark Ski with his dad and uncle on the weekends.

When he graduated high school in 2010 he moved west to Colorado and quickly fell in love with skiing big mountains. He started competeing in big mountain telemark competitions that same year. Since then he has bounced around the WEST living in places like Alta, UT and Bozeman, MT. This has allowed him to ski with some of the best in our sport and work with people like Josh Madsen at Telemark Skier Magazine, JT Robinson from Vertical Integration, and Erik Fey from Telemark down.com. In 2017 he made the move to Aspen, Colorado with his girlfriend to coach a Big Mountain Telemark program for the Aspen Valley Ski Club. In 1 year they have grow the program from 13 to 21 athletes. He also coach for Colorado Mountain School with the legendary Kayo Ogilby in Carbondale, Colorado where they have 25 telemark athletes. Coaching is the best way for him to give back to our sport and guarantee a future for young Telemark Skiers. When he is not coaching you can find him skiing chair laps at Aspen or hunting for fresh snow and Big lines in the backcountry with his girlfriend and his dog.
