Bobby Aldighieri is a former professional mogul skier, Olympic athlete, and two-time Olympic coach. He competed in the 1992 Olympic Games in Albertville, France, which was the first year mogul skiing was included in the games. He was a member of the national ski team for seven years, achieving a top-five world ranking; he was on the professional ski tour for three years and was the first mogul skier in history to win a World Cup and pro event.
Bobby was the head coach for the Canadian Freestyle team and helped them earn a gold medal in Torino Italy in 2006. In addition, he has coached many athletes to their prospective National team and the Olympics, including National Champions, World Championship medalists, and Olympic Medalists.
Most recently, Bobby has made perhaps his most significant career decision yet in choosing to step down from his position as freestyle program director for the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club to pursue the next phase of life.
