NOTE: Participants are encouraged to sign up for both days. The experience is a progression of information and skiing that is intended to be offered over both days. If members can only do one day, it should be the first day and not the second day.
Participant must be comfortable skiing black diamond terrain and more.
Coach/participant rapport will be developed via working on technique needed for steep skiing. Student confidence is important and will be enhanced prior to skiing the steep slopes. Feedback will be given for off piste skiing, high speed cruisers, and moderate jumps. All of these will prepare participants for the hazards of steep slopes. Turn shape, rhythm, and speed will be developed through imitation by following the clinic leader on terrain that has exposure and consequences. Safety will be a number one priority during this exciting clinic format.
By the end of the clinic, the participant will:
- have acquired confidence and appreciate the demands of the steeps.
- have developed prerequisite skills needed for the steeps.
- have had the opportunity to follow a well seasoned steeps clinician.
All PSIA/AASI Intermountain members must follow the division code of conduct.
