While Spokane Nordic Ski Association is largely a volunteer organization, it does contract with several individuals to fulfill functions that are too specialized or intense to be met well within the time constraints of an all-volunteer board or volunteer members.

Head Coach

Jason Halloran

Jason raced with SNSA and then competed at the University of Denver. He is a former Board Member and his family has a long history with SNSA.

Assistant Race Team Coaches

Brooks Schaaf and Olivia Crawford

Communications and Events Directors

Trevor & Dee Finchamp

This husband and wife team joined the SNSA team in 2020 to help with public communication, event planning, fundraising, and website-related tasks. Trevor and Dee run a small local business called Karma Cultivate that helps several Spokane non-profits with similar needs.
