2019-2020 Alpine Skills Development Workshop
Hosted by Wild Mountain Ski and Snowboard Area -- Thank You Wild!
Ski/Ride Session – SES (Snowsports Enhancement Seminar)
An SES (Snowsports Enhancement Seminar) held by the NSP-C Ski School. Skiing clinics are taught by PSIA ski instructors and are open to all patrollers in the Region. This session will explore the fundamental standards of skiing/riding at the core of the sport. Telemark skiing will also be available! As ski patrollers, we need to be able to ski/ride in a way that presents a clear image of an NSP patroller to the public. We will employ activities that explore movements and build skills to create successful learning experiences to allow our patrollers to progress in challenging activities. This session is open to all patrollers.
If you are a Senior candidate and want to work on skiing skills specific to the Senior S&T exam, sign-up for this session. At the event, please inform the instructors your desire to work on the Senior skills. They will tailor instruction to you for the day. NSP Course #:
