About Us

BEYONDSKI was founded by Charles Biggers and Dino Haak in 2006 to provide premier ski and snowboard instruction at Snoqualmie Pass, WA. Both founders have been in the ski industry for countless years and decided to create a ski school where only the best of the best are employed providing the most comprehensive lessons available.

 

All of our experienced instructors hold certifications from either PSIA (Professional Ski Instructor’s of America), AASI (American Association of Snowboard Instructors) or their International equivalents.

BeyondSki operates under the umbrella of ULLR Snow Sports, a concessionaire with the Summit-At-Snoqualmie.
