A conversation with Cami Thompson Graves, the Director of Skiing and the Women’s Cross Country Skiing Head Coach at Dartmouth College. Cami has been at Dartmouth for almost 30 years. Prior to coaching she raced at St. Lawrence University and then for the U.S. Ski Team from 1985-87. She represented the U.S. at the 1985 World Championships in Seefeld, Austria. She is a member of the New England Nordic Ski Association (NENSA) Board of Directors, a former member of the NCAA Skiing Rules Committee, the Chair of U.S. Ski and Snowboarding’s Cross Country Committee and a member of U.S. Ski and Snowboarding’s Board of Directors. Finally, she represents the U.S. on the International Ski Federation’s Ladies Cross Country Committee. Five of the ten current women on the U.S. Ski Team either have skied for Cami or are currently skiing for her. In the conversation we talked about how skiing has changed in the last 30 years, Cami’s transition from athlete to coach, how she runs the Dartmouth program, her goals for each of her committee positions, NCAA skiing’s role in the U.S. development pipeline and her future in skiing.
