Meet at Creekside, top floor, Entry 1

This is an introductory clinic to running gates. No experience is necessary. Racers make the best skiers, and this is acquired by skiing gates. The necessity of planning and maintaining a line will result in skill improvement by challenging timing of all skills.

Participants will start with rhythmical NASTAR or giant slalom (GS) size turns and advance to rhythm changes. Safety aspects will be of primary concern and participants will learn how to set up a safe race arena and be able to identify a gate that is prepared correctly and low risk from a gate that is high risk. Race protocol and etiquette will be diligently covered.

By the end of the clinic, the participant will:

– have experienced the thrill of gate running
– have worked on their skiing skills without even knowing it
– be able to identify a low-risk race arena and low-risk race course
