The OISA Board is comprised of volunteers who feel passionately about snowboarding and the opportunity which we provide for our members. Currently our Board consists of the following members:

Ben is unaware that he’s not “OISA King Ben Beavon

President: Ben Beavon – Gorge League
Joined Board: 2013

Ben grew up in Bozeman, Montana where he coached for 7 years at Bridger Bowl. He moved to Mt. Hood and began coaching with the OISA in the fall of 2009. His winters consist of coaching the Sandy Snowboard Team as well as coaching with Timberline Freestyle and working at the Next Adventure. During the summer months he coaches for Timberline Summer Snow Camps, and fills in the off months doing new and remodel construction work. Aside from snowboarding, Ben works on old bicycles, hits jumps on new ones, and has started coaching biking as well. Snowboarding has had a very positive influence on Ben’s life in high school and since. He continues to work with the OISA because it is a great way to share the sport and the outdoors with current high school students.

Fred can often be found with a backpack full of goodies to share from some of generous sponsors. So if you see him on a comp day, ask for a Kind bar.

Daniell has the enviable task of keeping the OISA board on task & well fed at meetings, basically she herds the cat-herders.

Secretary: Daniell Elmore – Sunset League
Joined Board: 2018

Born and raised in Alaska, you could say that snow is in Daniell’s DNA. Her oldest son Ethan just graduated after three seasons that saw him grow immensely as a boarder and establish the first snowboard team in Sherwood. Now with her youngest son Gavan involved, Daniell enters her third season of volunteering for team Sherwood and first as part of the OISA Board. Daniell enjoys all things outdoors that Oregon has to offer with her boys, husband Danny and pup Ollie. She is looking forward to continuing the hard work the OISA does to make this the best experience for the riders of today and tomorrow!

Clyde burton – Three Rivers League
Joined Board: 2018

I have been a long time supporter of Snowboarding , A true Oregon native my Great Grandfather was a Carpenter and help build Timberline Lodge during the great depression. As a business owner and employer my strengths are 1= getting things done right, 2= have fun doing them. Most of all working with the kids and watching the grow in thier abilities on the mountain. Having things organized during the season makes the events come off seamless and everyone having a fun time.

I love what I do, and do what I love

Brian Jimenez – Southern League
Joined Board: 2017

Todd Mobley – Gorge
Joined Board: 2017

Todd started snowboarding during high school in the late 80’s on Mt. Hood and Mt. Bachelor. He worked hard to keep a few midweek days open for snowboarding during college and quickly learned that if he was leaving the parking lot at Mt. Bachelor 22 minutes before class started, he could make it on time. Even on powder days. Now he’s a traffic engineer and small business owner. Refusing to let the corporate world get him down, he became involved with the OISA in 2014 when his son was a freshman. He has seven bicycles and two unicycles, which his wife thinks is excessive.

Lisa Reid – Sunset Leauge
Joined Board: 2016

Lisa started boarding in the mid 80’s at Mt. Ashland where she was frequently stranded at the top of the run while a liftie borrowed her board for a trial run to see how it worked.  Her winters are spent on the snow and summers find her backpacking, hiking, and camping.  To support these habits, she is a teacher for deaf and hard of hearing students throughout Yamhill County.  Lisa raised a Boa Constrictor named Joey that grew to six feet long.  She never did get Sea-Monkeys.  She can roll her tongue and roll her ‘R’s but she can’t whistle.  She loves cinnamon bears and is the only person in the known world who does not drink coffee.  Her claim to fame is that she set her school’s flex arm hang record in 5th grade. 

Jamie Krueger – Sunset League
Joined Board 2015

Jamie’s grandparents met in the ’30s riding in the back of an ambulance up Loveland Pass in Colorado and made sure that their children and grandchildren spent as much time on the mountain as possible. It was on one of those trips in the mid 80s that they paid for a snowboard lesson and rental. After a couple of seasons in Big Bear in the 90s, Jamie moved back to Colorado, then within a couple of years had the opportunity to relocate to Portland for work and has been here since. Mt Hood & Mt Bachelor provide ample opportunity for progression in various conditions leading to well rounded snowboarders. He’s excited to be working with the OISA to help develop our young men & women into confident riders that find fun in all of the challenges in our 10 month season.
