Name: Linda Candela

Age: 61

Hometown: Webster

How long have you been skiing: I hate to admit it has been almost 50 years!!

What is something that people might not know about you? I am a nerdy accountant by trade

What type of skiing can you do?

I have done trick skiing, ballet skiing, knee boarding and wake surfing. In my younger days I was a base for pyramid skiing. My passion is teaching, coaching and skiing slalom.

What’s your favorite thing to do on the water?

As I said above, slalom ski! Although the sunset cruises on the pontoon are pretty nice too!!! My heart belongs to the slalom!!

What are your goals for 2020?

My goals are many!
1. To get every person who wants to ski up and going!!!

2. to ski the slalom course this year

3. to beat my record of 108 ski sessions in a season!!

4. To help make WWC the best it can be by promoting social good!

5. What do you do outside of the Collective (other hobbies, school, work, etc?)

Besides working full time as an accountant, I enjoy rehabbing real estate. I moved to Webster Lake 7 years ago. I own rental properties and pride myself in renting space I would be happy to live in. I love dogs and am blessed to have a dog friendly house on Webster Lake! I also enjoy walks with family and friends, playing cards and of course the cookouts and sunset cruises with my family and friends!

Oh yeah, and guess what I do in the winter?? SNOW SKI!!!

Any advice that you can give to someone learning to ski, or learning something new on skis?

I truly know from my own experience, if you say you can, you will!! If you say you can’t, you are right!! Believe you can and you will!!
