Christina Mattsson

Program Director

Christina began her career working winters seasonally as a snowboarding coach, trainer, and competitive freestyle judge while teaching horseback riding lessons and training horses during the off-season. Her passion for sharing her love of the outdoors with others continued to motivate her to expand her repertoire as a mountain bike instructor, paddling instructor, and OCR coach. Following several seasons teaching snow sports full time, she transitioned into a leadership role at the largest ski area in the East, Killington Resort. As the Director of Children’s Programs, Christina managed all aspects of the youth ski and snowboard programs and mentored a talented team of instructors. 

Following a 15-year tenure at Killington, Christina branched out to a broader recreation management role and served for 6 years as the Director of Recreational Experiences for the Woodstock Inn & Resort. In this position she managed all aspects of the Saskadena Six Ski Area, the Nordic Center, the Athletic Club, the Spa, the Activity Center, and the mountain biking and fly-fishing programs. Christina’s passion for fitness coupled with her deeply rooted connection to the outdoors inspired her to start her training business, Epic Life Fitness. With her background in a variety of outdoor activities and a focus on recreation-sport-specific training, Christina has been able to empower those around her with the tools they need to live their most epic adventures.   

Christina says: “We all can do so much more than we think we can. I am truly inspired by the compassionate approach of the entire team at Skyterra, and I am humbled by the opportunity to be part of something that is life-changing for so many.”
