Coach Flynn, a native “Mainer,” started Freeskiing in high school when he developed the first terrain park at his local ski area. He later attended college at the University of Maine in Farmington, where he acquired his bachelors in economics and completed a ski industries certificate program. While attending college he coached with the Gould Academy Weekend Program, produced ski movies, and organized ski events. After exploring events such as the X Games and the SIA Trade Show, he moved to Salt Lake City, where he started coaching full-time and freeriding his way around New England, Colorado, Utah, California, and Montana. He is now happy to be home in Maine where he can train the next generation of competitive freeskiers.
