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:

Executive Board

President: Chris Classen – Three Rivers
Joined Board: 2012
I’m a board sport enthusiast. I’ve been snowboarding since the late 80′ and still can’t get enough. What can I say I just love to shred. Looking forward to a great snow season.











Vice President: Ben Beavon – Gorge
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.



Secretary Susie Shinn – Three Rivers
Joined Board: 2013
Although I’ve never been strapped in to a board, and rarely step outside the lodge except to get to my car, I’ve been involved with High School snowboarding for six years now. When my oldest son was a freshman at Wilsonville High School, another mom and I started the program at WHS. Now my youngest son is a Freshman, so I’m in for another four years. I’ve served as Secretary on the Three Rivers League Board for the past four years and have been League Scorekeeper for five years. I’m looking forward to being a member of the OISA Board and contributing to a program I believe in so strongly. I truly enjoy being a part of such a great organization and doing my little part to help provide this opportunity to our young snowboarding athletes.

Justin McRobert – Sunset
Joined Board: 2014
Justin has been enjoying the fluffy turns of a fresh powder since the mid 90’s.   After a brief hideous from the sport he started volunteering with the same high school team he competed with 9 years prior.  High School Snowboarding made a positive influence in his life and he wants to see that same benefits in others lives as well.  He is a avid photographer, an Oregon Coast surfer, and lousy golfer.
