About

I have been snowboarding for more than 25 years. Snowboarding has become a lifestyle for me and it is one of the greatest passions of my life. I love sharing this amazing sport with others and I get such an amazing satisfaction when newcomers feel the spark. Being an instructor has given me the patience to teach people, understand their learning styles and help them enjoy the hill. I value the connections I make with all of my students and I strive to understand what makes each student tick and learn. Snowboarding may not always be easy, but it is always fun!

I love sharing my passion for snowboarding with my students. I have had success teaching students of all ages and abilities. I feel an amazing sense of pride when my students succeed. Your success gives me pride. Let me help you learn how to snowboard! I know we will have fun along the way.

When I'm not snowboarding I enjoy biking, hiking and golfing and I always enjoy having a view of the mountains that I love so much.

Morgan is a great teacher. Very knowledgeable and patient! I decided to try snowboarding this year after a 14 year break from skiing. She remained calm despite me running into her in the chairlift line, practically falling into her lap on the chairlift which I had only tried 3 times before, wiping out on the chair lift ramp, and each time I fell on the trail. Needless to say I am a hot mess on a snowboard but she remained calm, talked me through it and I had a great time. Hope to do some more lessons with her before the season is over.

Booked my son a 2hr with Morgan on the day of a 'blizzard' 3/2. My 7yr son has take a few other private lessons and has been getting better but still never got his toe side and linking turns. It was a rough day with an unfortunate first (for both) but Morgan handled everything like a professional and care for my son. Very accommodating to get the full lesson in, top notch instructor and setup at Mt Snow. My son took a all day camp (mountain riders) the next day where they stayed at the bunny the whole day. After picking up my son, I took him up Canyon Express to the green and behold, he was linking his turns and doing toe more often!!! I was pleasantly surprised as he got down with only about 2 minor falls. I asked him after if he had gotten his toe side turn from mountain riders or his private lesson and he mentioned with was his time with the private lesson. So thank you Morgan! He ready to just get runs in now and improve on his riding. Straight to the top!

I arrived to the 2hr lesson with snowboard in hand and admitted that I had no knowledge of how to put it on. I was an absolute beginner and as a competent skier, a little nervous to boot. Morgan took this in her stride and delivered the perfect amount of information throughout the lesson. Her great personality meant that the time flew. I am so glad I opted for 2hrs because it allowed a little “refreshment” break somewhere in the middle so that I could pause, take in everything I had been taught and apply it in the second half of the session. She instilled confidence in me such that the following day after 2-3hrs of putting into practice what she had shown me, I was taking the lift competently, linking my turns and skating without falling. I could hear her tips in my head as to what I should be feeling, what my toes and heels should be doing and most importantly, where I should be looking. Amazing experience with Morgan and highly recommended!

Morgan is the best! My son has been snowboarding 1-2 a season for years but the progress he made this year with Morgan was beyond my expectations! Anthony is a timid snowboarder. Prefers the bunny hills, will cautiously attempt greens.. Morgan had him at the top of the mountain riding easy blues. Not only was Morgan a fantastic instructor, Anthony loved riding with her! Morgan truly went above and beyond. Thank you Morgan we all had an awesome weekend at Mount Snow thanks to you!!

Morgan really, really rocks. She's VERY observant and can easily pick up on where you need to make adjustments so you can start feeling confident and successful ASAP--as a beginner I've found that this is the most important piece; far too often you get discouraged and frustrated too early on which makes your time on the mountain not so great. Morgan will be sure to find references that are relevant to you, and helps to keep things fun with her great attitude and patience. Coming from someone who was completely clueless after two years of group lessons, I came out of my private lesson feeling on top of the world. I most definitely will be booking my next lesson with her again!

Morgan is the greatest. This is my sons first year riding but after the lesson with Morgan he comes running to me saying dada no more magic carpets for me Morgan brought me on the lift. It was enough to make any fathers heart melt. Now he's riding the lifts working on his feathering and his confidence level is through the roof all thanks to Morgan. We will be back and we will be looking for her as she is now his master Yoda.

I took a lesson with Morgan last week! Nervous, I thought I would feel like a geek! I'm awkward and clumsy I usually fall. I didn't want to look dumb-sky or fly into a wall. But take one class with Morgan and you will be hooked With glee, I howled like an organ!! I am so glad I booked! She'll show you the basics step by step, one by one then haul your ass up the mountain, so you can shred up some fun! she taught me to gear up and glide heal edge and toe and then turn side to side. With out fear or foe. She puts safety first, and won't let you quit! She will cheer you on and an pull you up if you sit! Bitton's got this show down You'll never see a frown On anyone near her in this little ski town. or on one of her students who all love her prudence. If you're thinking of booking the best teacher by far, I just have to let my feelings out of the jar! You have got to book Morgan, she's great! It's True! I simply can't wait 'till I sign up for class 2 She's so much fun and really got me quite far! Next time I'm up there, we're gonna' shred up the gnar!

It was about 5 or 6 years since i have ridden and i was in dire need of a refresher class. by the time i was done i felt like i was back to when i was able to get to the slopes a few times a season. She fixed a couple bad habits i picked up along the way and taught me a lot of new things as well. Her biggest strength is probably assessing first your ability and then your learning style and teaching to that but with a healthy amount of pressure. And just to top it off, we had a chance to talk about boarding and just generally chat on the lift. can you really beat an instructor that can teach and keep you entertained as well?

I am a complete beginner and was very nervous. Morgan was so great with her advice, giving me confidence and keeping me calm. She was very patient with me in helping me go at my own pace! I would definitely recommend Morgan to anyone looking to take up snowboarding and I will be going back for more lessons with her!

We first met Morgan at an industry event outside of Mount Snow, where she is an instructor. My daughter Gidget, who is 10 and an avid snowboarder with big goals, thought she was "super cool" and when it was time to schedule a pre-season warm up lesson, she asked if we could book the lesson with Morgan. Morgan is not only warm and welcoming; she epitomizes the spirit of snowboarding, and that of Mount Snow itself. It's that kind of attitude that led us to make the decision to put our daughter into one of the season-long snowboarding programs up there. Morgan is patient, attentive, and went out of her way to not only make Gidget feel comfortable during their lesson, but to make sure she had fun. Morgan never ever hesitates to stop and say hello and chat for a few minutes when we run into her at the mountain. I have recommended Morgan to other parents looking to put their young riders into supplemental lessons, parents who are looking to introduce their child to riding, and even to adults who want to learn to snowboard.
