Bergy gets promoted

Posted By on Fri, Dec 3, 2010 at 2:50 PM

Just a few months after accepting a position as elite freestyle aerials assistant coach for the U.S. Ski Team, Missoula native and Olympic medalist Eric "Bergy" Bergoust has rocketed to the top. Head aerials coach Dmitriy Kavunov landed a gig with the Russian Ski Federation this fall and, according to an e-mail from Freestyle Program Director Todd Schirman, Bergy has stepped up to fill his shoes. KPAX led with the news yesterday. Bergy's new job as head coach will have him working with mogul skiers this spring out of the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, New York. His schedule will pretty much remain the same, though, keeping him away from home for all but one week a month in the summer.
