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 thirty years, running the Ski School and the Historic Warming Hut. For over 25 years, he competed each winter in the extreme Arctic Man Competition in Fairbanks, earining three wins to his name. 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.
