This 3-day event is for Level 2-3 certified instructors of any age who would like to improve their skills working with all levels of senior skiers. Course includes in-depth study of the technical and tactical elements of contemporary skiing and modern equipment as applied to seniors.

We will also cover how to work with seniors in terms of pacing a lesson, group dynamics, and flexibility to student’s physical limitations. This is a Teaching Clinic & Exam. You will be evaluated on your teaching. The Accreditation Clinic includes coaching your skiing, video analysis and personal skiing improvement, but there is no skiing exam.
