MEET THE COACH
Kris LaPoint knows a thing or two when it comes to slalom skiing. Setting his first world slalom record at the ripe age of 13, he swerved on to become one of sport’s most iconic figures in a pro career that spanned over 40 years. Aside from his many Masters titles and world records, LaPoint was known for his extensive R&D on skis and boats, and his ability to maximize his equipment. In fact, he’s started his own ski company, and now has some of the best skiers in the pro tour riding his LaPoint skis. He skis and manufactures his skis at LaPoint Ski Park in Orlando, Florida. As a longtime guest coach at Ski Paradise, Kris enjoys working with skiers of all abilities and takes pride in advancing the sport forward with time and energy.
