Ruben Macaya – Alpine Program Director
A treasured member of the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation for 23 years, Ruben hails from Barocoche, Argentina. Ruben represented his country in the 1968 Winter Olympics and appeared in five FIS Alpine World Championships from 1966 to 1970. Before coming to Sun Valley, Ruben coached the United States Ski Team from 1980 to 1984 and the 1984 U.S. Winter Olympic Team. He returned to the helm of Argentina for 1988 Winter Olympics. When he’s not knocking items off the “honey-do” list for his wife, Paula, Ruben enjoys mountain biking, fishing, hiking and listening to music. He absolutely loves dogs, and cooks the meanest Lamb Asada this side of South America.
