Meadows Race Team is the organization that brought John to Hood River more than 20 years ago. He has served as program manager for Mt. Hood Summer Ski Camps for 10 years prior to taking the Hood River Community Education Director position in 2009. With a storied career on Mt Hood John Rust is proudly the Program Director for the Meadows Race team. As a vibrant and active community leader, John has taken the reins of MRT and quickly gained the respect and admiration of this Ski community.  Looking forward to a great season.

 

"I could not be more excited to be working with MRT! The energy at this club right now is obvious, and it is a fun time to be working with an enthusiastic group of athletes and a supportive community. Alpine ski racing does enhance lives, and MRT is committed to that philosophy. I think we make a great match, so thank you for letting me be a part of your journey."
