Dave Schneider

Dave Schneider, a former medical writer turned author, lives in Vermont. His passion is skiing. He raced on his college ski team, taught his three sons to ski, and began coaching junior racers who were, he says, “A fun bunch of very talented boys and girls,” some of whom eventually made their college teams and the US Ski Team. Dave is an Honorary Trustee of the Green Mountain Valley School, a leading ski racing and college preparatory academy.

The story of The Snowy began, he says, “One day, after a blizzard, when some racers and I went up to ski the fresh powder. As our chairlift rose over the snow-laden trees, we wondered what it would be like if an alien creature was hiding down there. Why would it be there? How would it get there? Would we ever see it? Would it be friendly, or dangerous…?”
