About Luis: When Luis Rubio-Aguilar was 10 years old, he migrated from his birthplace in Jalisco, Mexico, to the Lake Tahoe area. Growing up there was an awesome experience for a kid: He got to ski, camp, ride bikes, play ball and enjoy the beach. At 12 years old he started skiing at Homewood Mountain Resort, where he fell in love with it. He has now worked in the ski industry for more than 10 years, and with his PSIA Level 2 Alpine certification he enjoys coaching and teaching kids one of his favorite sports. He is also a camp guide (bilingual), mentor and musician. He spends a lot of his free time in woods and meadows identifying plants, flowers and mushrooms and learning about their uses and their roles in nature. Time in the woods gives him peace of mind, an opportunity to reflect and a sense of how complex life is. The more he learns about that, the more in touch he feels with himself and with life’s challenges. Having faced his own share of challenges, both when growing up and as an adult, he hopes the experiences he can share with students and peers will offer both knowledge and understanding.
