Lisa Wirth - Lessons Director                   Emily Wirth                                    Eric Robinson

Eric learned to ski when he was 5 at the East Hill in Camillus. Once he got the hang of it, he took advantage of any hill on or around his family farm and would build jumps and ski all day. He first began teaching lessons at Song Mountain and has now been teaching for about 25 years. He finds that teaching kids is the most rewarding, he loves to see them succeed at something they didn't realize they could do.

Emily learned to ski when she was 4 right here at Skaneateles Ski Hill. Once she got good enough she joined the Race Program at the hill and raced there until she aged out of the program which is 13. She then continued to race at Toggenburg Mountain until she was 15. Once ending her racing career she started helping with the lesson program as well as private lessons. Emily's favorite part is the connection with the kids and watching there progress over the season.
