Ski/Ride – SES (Snowsports Enhancement Seminar)
An SES (Snowsports Enhancement Seminar) held by the NSP-C Ski School. Skiing/Riding clinics are taught by
PSIA/AASI certified 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. As 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 or riding 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.
