Mermer Blakeslee started skiing at Windham in 1960 at the age of three and has taught skiing here since 1979. In 1996, Mermer won Skiing magazine’s Instructor of the Year Award. That spring, she successfully competed and became a member of the PSIA National Demonstration Team, an elite team which spearheads the development and direction of ski teaching in America and represents American skiing internationally. (She was one of the few women and the only mother to do so.)
Mermer has lectured at PSIA’s National Academies and National Women’s Seminars, and the National Ski Patrol’s annual conventions. She has traveled throughout the country training ski instructors and for the last 29 years served as an examiner for PSIA-Eastern. She has been a coach for the Divisional Clinic Leaders, the Development Team, and the Eastern Demonstration team. Every spring in Snowbird, Utah, she leads the Women’s Adventure Camp.
Mermer has run The Fear Workshop here at Windham for over 25 years and has been called “the ski industry’s fear specialist.” She has published four books, A Conversation with Fear (formerly In the Yikes! Zone) about her work with fearful skiers and three novels, the latest being When You Live by a River.
