Ryan Ritchie

Masters Head Coach

Ryan's skiing journey began at a tender age of 2, racing with the Bear Valley Race Team throughout high school. At UC Davis, he led the Ski Team to USCSA Nationals for three consecutive years, where he crossed paths with his ski-racing wife. Post-graduation with a Biomechanics degree, he served as Assistant Coach at UCD while diving into Physical Therapy studies.

His PT career took him to Europe with the US Men’s Downhill team as their Physio, temporarily pausing his ski racing pursuits. Transitioning to coaching, Ryan directed his expertise to his daughters' ski racing endeavors and now guides the DPSEF Masters team. Alongside his wife and daughters, they revel in mountain biking, backpacking, and wake surfing during the off-season, sharing a passion for the outdoors that extends beyond the slopes.
