Hello, I’m Cameron Hunter. I grew up in Northern Wisconsin and started snowboarding at the age of 13 with my family. We took a lesson together and I was immediately hooked. I soon developed an interest in teaching others how to snowboard; being able to share something with others that you are passionate about is one of the most rewarding experiences in life.
As an instructor at the age of 18 I achieved my full certification through AASI. After going to college I moved to Breckenridge, Colorado where I continued my education with AASI, completing my Children’s Accreditation as well as Freestyle Accreditation. To expand my passion of freestyle, I stepped up to the position of Lead Freestyle Trainer for Breckenridge ride school. As I have been coaching with Method Academy for the last 5 years, I have also achieved the level 300 coaching certification through USASA/USSA, a professional organization that certifies coaches for the US and Olympic teams.
With USASA, I am a coaches’ educator, running clinics that represent the standard of competitive coaching. Some of the contests I have coached at include USASA Nationals, FIS World Cups, US Open, the X Games, and other TTR World Snowboard events.
Here is an inspirational quote that holds true to my coaching philosophy.
“Go back to very basic things. No one has it all. You are entering, in one form or another, a very competitive area…. love the simple things. Don’t expect to be put in any special place… nobody’s going to hoist you to the top, no matter what–unless you prove yourself. Learn the movements for the sake of the movements, and love those movements.” -Rodney Mullen
