Mike Chait
Snow Sport University Snowboard Manager

I have been standing sideways for 16 years and counting. I am the Snowboard Manager at Smuggs, and I also have my hand in many other projects… like terrain parks! I first came to Smuggs for late season pow turns. The following season, I started as a Snowboard Instructor and I have never looked back. My passion for snowboarding at Smuggs? Big slashers and riding with a great crew. Chances are that if you run into me on the mountain, I am exploring the endless woods in search for the perfect natural jib. Every forest has one. Favorite trick: method air… stay true.
