About Doug and Kelley
Doug Lewis, a native Vermonter, began bombing down Vermont’s mountains at age three and ski racing at age eight. Early training at the Middlebury Snowbowl contributed to his great love of skiing and the mountains. He went on to compete in the ’84 & ’88 Olympics. Today, Doug is actively involved in every level of the ski industry as a broadcaster, TV host, ski celebrity, motivational speaker, product consultant, spokesperson, journalist, coach and trainer. Kelley Lewis arrived on the Vermont scene at age 15, when she packed up her skis and moved to Vermont to attend Burke Mtn Ski Academy... and she never left. Although she is not a native Vermonter, she most certainly is a Vermonter-at-heart. Kelley works in the ski industry as a TV host, sports & lifestyle model, writer, trainer and coach.
Kelley & Doug have been involved in broadcast TV for over 15 years, both locally and nationally. In their role as RSN Hosts, they have developed a strong following of skiers and outdoor enthusiasts. They are well-known and well-respected within the ski industry. TV credits include: RSN, FOX, TLC, CBS
In the Summer, Doug and Kelley run ELITEAM Summer camps for young athletes, teaching them the benefits of Sports Physiology, Sports Psychology and Sports Nutrition. Health and fitness are high on Doug and Kelley’s priority list, so it gives them great pleasure to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with the kids.
Nestled in the mountains, Kelley & Doug currently reside in an old Vermont farmhouse with their dog Maddy. It’s no surprise that their home is perched on a hill that overlooks the trails at Sugarbush and Mad River Glen. They consider it to be their perfect paradise, where they can enjoy the fresh air, natural Vermont beauty, and have the freedom to walk out their front door to go skiing, hiking, biking, xc skiing, running or snowshoeing on any given day.
