-- Identify and discuss the personal changes that contributed to more confident and controlled

off-piste skiing.

Clinic Experiences:

-- The clinic leader and participants will collaborate to determine a relevant goal related to off-

piste skiing.

-- The participants will ski off-piste advanced and expert terrain.

-- The clinic leader will emphasize skill blends that create round turns that are the result of the

ski's design and maintain a consistent yet aggressive speed with minimal deceleration.

-- The clinic leader will demonstrate tactics to adapt turn shape, size, and line in response to

the conditions.

-- The clinic leader will provide feedback so participants are able to make specific adjustments.

-- The clinic leader will facilitate practice so participants may apply their feedback

-- The clinic leader will facilitate reflection on the day's goal and what tactics helped in creating

consistency and control off-piste.
