This includes the ability to adapt to a wide range of environments and speeds while maintaining accurate body movements and ski performance. This is a clinic about how to adapt the fundamental skills of skiing in order to maintain accurate ski performance in tasks such as short radius turns, moguls, and free skiing.
This clinic is a designated prerequisite for the Level 2 Skiing and Teaching assessments.
