Kim has worked for Springville City for fifteen years and has been the Canyon Parks Supervisor for the past four years. He raised his family in Mapleton for 30 years and he currently lives in Levan, Utah with his wife Debbie and two grandchildren.
Kim has always had a great love for the outdoors and takes pride in keeping the parks, pavilions and campgrounds as nice as possible for our guests. Kim was previously involved with the city parks and recreation programs and values all the friendships and acquaintances he made.
He graduated from BYU with degrees in Recreation Management and Therapeutic Recreation. He was the program director at the National Ability Center before coming to Springville City, and has taught hundreds of disabled individuals to ski, ride horses, river raft, and generally enjoy sports and the outdoors. Kim has been a professional skier for 38 years and is a former world and national champion ski racer. Kim was also selected as the Outstanding Ski Patroller of the nation in 1983. He has taught skiing all over the United States and in several foreign countries. Kim still teaches part time at Sundance. Kim is also an avid golfer and helped coach the SHS golf team for several years. Between hunting, skiing, working, and his golf habit, he can be found in the outdoors somewhere, about 364 days of the year.
Kim’s love of winter and the snow helped Springville City with creating the Jolley’s Ranch Winter Recreation program in our canyon parks. Creating a place for our residents and guests from around the county to recreate in the winter has been a very successful addition to the services offered in our canyon.
