Terry Cramer - Ski and Snowboard Instructor
Terry Cramer has been on skis all her life. Her dad worked on Seymour Mountain in North Vancouver BC as a chairlift operator so that his 3 kids could ski for free. Those were the days that most runs only had rope tows to get you up the hill!  Terry and her family became Purden Mt. cabin owners in 1986 and have been spending winter weekends at the hill since then. Terry started to self-learn the 'New Snowboard Thing' about 15 years ago and has helped many new snowboarder get on their feet!  Terry especially enjoys instructing children.   Terry will teach you the basics of snowboarding and more!
