Daniela Runge Portrait
  • Adaptive Level 1-2-3
  • PSIA Rocky Mountain Trainer

Where were you born and/or raised?
I was born and raised in San Carlos de Bariloche-Argentina 

How long have you lived in Crested Butte?
I became an alpine instructor in Argentina and then moved to Crested Butte with my son Alvaro who was 5 at the time, in order to get my adaptive certifications. I've since been here for 13 years.
Why did you choose to work with people with disabilities?
I grew up in a ski resort where my dad was a ski school director. I was exposed to teaching for as long as I can remember. In Crested Butte I get to know incredible people all the time, both Participants and co-workers.

How did you come to work with the ASC? How long have you been here?
After 10 years of teaching alpine, the ASC came to Argentina to train instructors in adaptive skiing because there was no program available there. I fell in love with the idea right away. Since then I've been teaching adaptive skiing. 

How long have you been skiing/snowboarding?
For as long as I can remember. 

What's your favorite restaurant in Crested Butte?
The Sunflower at the moment. And Lil's
What is your favorite ski resort?
Crested Butte of course, if I'm not Heli-Skiing in Alaska.
