The Path to Summit: To participate, hold a Level 3 Cross Country Certification and have completed the Cross Country RMT Preparation Clinic. Complete the online PSIA-RM Cross Country RMT Workbook to lay the groundwork for your journey. Equip yourself with knowledge from the PSIA Level 3 Cross Country National Standards, defining the fundamentals of teaching, skiing skills, and people skills.

Preparing for Ascent: Gather your classic skis, skate skis, boots, and poles. While waxable classic skis are highly recommended, they are not mandatory, yet showcasing your skiing skills is paramount. Prepare your equipment, optimizing your performance for assessment.

Peaks of Expertise: Showcase your skiing skills, lead clinic sessions, and excel in people skills. As you analyze fellow skiers' skills and communicate effectively, the event becomes a reflection of your expertise.

Descent and Reflection: As the assessment draws to a close, you'll receive verbal confirmation of your success, with the completed assessment form delivered within 24 hours.
