Dynastar/Lange promotes Andy Woods to freeride/freestyle team coordinator

Dynastar/Lange promotes Andy Woods to freeride/freestyle team coordinator{mosimage}In keeping with their philosophy of living within the high-performance skiing community, the Dynastar and Lange brands have promoted their longtime elite freestyle competitor and film star, Andy Woods, to the position of North American freeride/freestyle team coordinator.

Woods’ promotion to this unique player/coach position allows the company and the athletes to be more closely connected and to be more aware of the needs and wants of the freestyle and freeride teams.

“I’ve been a freestyle athlete for a long time,” said Woods, who grew up in Vermont and has worked in Dynastar’s Vermont service center since he was a kid. “And I know some of the small things that a company, a team and athletes can do together that help everyone have more fun and more success. I’m really excited about this position.”

Specifically, Woods will continue to perform as one of the strongest new-school competitors in films and comps — he’s been on the podium of at least one of the biggest international events every year for the last seven years.

Woods will work with all of Dynastar’s North American freestyle and freeride athletes to make sure they’re getting the most from Dynastar and Lange and also that their schedules and objectives are reasonable and attained.

“At this point [age 25], I’m older than everyone else. I’ve had reasonable success and I know how to stay consistent and competitive. I’m looking forward to sharing that with everyone else.”

Dynastar’s global freestyle team manager and former “Three Phils” Phil Dion is also very excited about Woods’ hiring. “The guy’s great, he’s smart, he’s organized and he’s been a strong competitor for a long time. Our athletes will have much more involvement with the company and much more success because of his influence.”

And from one of Dynastar’s marquee film athletes, Tanner Rainville: “Andy has been an athlete for years, he knows just what we are going to need to make things happen easiest.”
