Marshall learned to ski in Missoula with his family, and at age 10, he and his father skied across Finland. At age 16, his family moved to Whitefish and he joined the Glacier Nordic Team for his first real experience of being on a ski team. He loved it. Marshall raced for the Intermountain Division (IMD) all four years in high school and had several top-ten results at Junior Nationals. He went on to ski for the Montana State University Ski Team in college. In 2018, Marshall served as the head coach of Glacier Nordic, and he also coached a masters race group in Whitefish. But his favorite place to ski is right here in Bozeman, and Marshall joined the BSF coaching staff in 2020. "My coaching goal is to foster a lifelong LOVE for skiing. I know that sounds corny but it's an amazing gift to love a sport you can do for the rest of your life. Being outside in winter, gracefully, silently, gliding through the woods, it's magic!"

Dan grew up at the Catamount Family XC ski center in northwestern Vermont. With a lighted night loop just off of the back porch, "My brother and I would come home from school, ski until dinner, then head back out under the lights. The landowners really helped define my understanding of community by opening their fences, encouraging responsible public access and outdoor recreation, while fostering preservation of their land." Dan raced Nordic skiing at the junior national and collegiate levels, and later worked in the ski and snowboard industry, helping to organize the Yellowstone Ski Festival and SuperTours in West Yellowstone. He came to Montana not long after a post-college stint touring the west with Burton Snowboards. He lives in Bozeman with his wife, Annie, and their two daughters. When the snow isn't flying, he owns and operates a small residential building company.
