Pro Ride Owner Karen Crute learned to ride on her home mountain Mount Buller in Victoria, Australia. She quickly became one of the best female riders in town and started competing in Boardercross. It was during this time that she met future husband Anthony Crute and this high-energy pair eventually settled in Whistler in 1997 to open Pro Ride Snowboard Camps.
Karen was voted 'Privates Instructor of the Year' for Whistler Blackcomb in 2005. Her years of experience come through in her coaching, whether you are going big in the park, dropping into steeps and trees or searching for the perfect powder lines, with Karen you might just have the best day ever!
Karen has continued to share her love of snowboarding both coaching on the mountain, and in the Pro Ride office making sure everyone who comes to camp has an amazing experience.
