About the Olympic Skibowl Ski and Snowboard School

Skibowl’s Olympic Ski and Snowboard School is headed by legendary Petr Kakes. The name of his ski school provides a clue to his passion. During the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France, Kakes placed sixth in Speed Skiing while on the Czech Republic team, where he was clocked at 139 miles per hour. Still a competitor, Kakes has been a fixture at Skibowl for over twenty-five years, running the ski school and the Historic Warming Hut and still competing each winter in the extreme Arctic Man Competition in Fairbanks. Each year, his notable team of instructions trains 4,500 new riders and skiers at Skibowl with programs designed for youth and adults of all abilities. Visit the Skibowl Olympic Ski and Snowboard School website for detailed information about ski and riding programs.
