Our Staff

There was a day not-so-long-ago that every member in the club would all sign up for volunteer shifts in Bev’s Bungalow to collect trail fees to support the club.

We still have a small army of volunteers to help keep our club functioning, but we’ve also grown enough that we are able to maintain a small staff of great people to keep the Nordic spirit alive in Revelstoke.

We are proud to introduce you to the RNSC staff for 2021/22:

Bridget Daughney: Executive Director
This is Bridget’s  third year as ED for RNSC. She is kept busy trying to keep up to the impressive Revelstoke Nordic Board and Staff! She is an avid recreational skier of all types, beginning her “career” at age 4. She comes from a background of outdoor education and is keen to get people outside having fun.

Zach Hill: Head Coach
Zach Hill has joined us from Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation in Bend, Oregon. He grew up ski racing in Alaska, and raced all over North America and Europe as a junior and college racer. Zach loves to alpine ski and trail run and is keen to explore the area with his wife Lisa and dog Kuma. He is thrilled to be part of such an engaged and passionate ski club and race team.

Duane Dukart: Operations Manager
Duane began with the RNSC as a volunteer groomer and avid skier.  Always happy to lend a hand, he came on board as our Operations Manager in 2015.  Duane takes care of the operations side of the RNSC including our trail network, the lodge, our super-cool groomer, and our machinery. If you are enjoying a great ski – chances are its because of Duane and his great volunteer team.

Paula Martens: Lodge Manager
Paula has been a mainstay of our office for 5 years running! Her friendly positive attitude is appreciated by returning members and new visitors alike.  Paula runs the office and rental program during the week and will now also be our Skill Development Program Coordinator for our Tuesday and Saturday youth programs.  She has been Nordic skiing since the age of 17, and she always enjoys being outdoors and the soulful nature of the sport.

Maja Swannie Jacob: Recreational Program Coordinator
 Maja has been avidly involved with volunteer coaching at the RNSC since 2017. We are very excited for Maja to contribute her skills to the new RPC position, which will include primary focuses on adult programming, lessons, ski clinics, and school programs. When not coaching or skiing herself, Maja can often be seen scampering around the trails with her telephoto lens taking fantastic shots of scenery, racers, club members, and goofy dress-up events.

Ashley Schweitzer:   Ticket Office
Ashley is returning for her second season this year – having become a welcomed “Revelstuck” addition to town.  She will be returning to her role as weekend ticket staff and caretaker. Ashley is a keen skier who has recently also taken up backcountry touring. Look for her out enjoying our nordic trails this season.
