End of the Season Celebration with some of your closest friends and snowsports family, yahoo!!! The season is coming to an end and it’s time to celebrate with the rest of your Division Family celebration all the great “pow”, “hero” snow and the “super” season it has been. We’re ready to put the icing on the cake with this end of the season bash that has been a Northwest tradition for almost 50 years! Can you believe it?! This two-day educational extravaganza (three if you participate in the for fun clinic offered Friday) showcases Northwest and other talented clinicians in a myriad of topic choices, ranging from everything under the sun, pun intended. And it’s also the best time to honor our long time members and award recipients and the Awards Banquet. This year we are headed to the beautiful sunshine and great conditions at Mission Ridge to celebrate the season. With current snow pack in the area at 112%, it should be an epic time enjoying all the corn snow. Look forward to seeing you there.

New Pro? Let's Go! - Adaptive @Symposium @ Mission Ridge | Wenatchee | Washington | United States
This clinic is designed specifically for instructors who took a Level I exam and will fulfill the education requirement for 1 season. Slide into a clinic with a Divisional Clinic Leader (DCL) for a day of fun, skiing and/or riding. It’s not all about talk, or books, or dues – it’s about having fun and sharing the passion for the mountain experience. Participants can expect to share the day with fellow instructors, possibly from other schools, while skiing or riding with a clinician who shares some information about the organization, the educational opportunities and to help them “Learn, Teach and Inspire” as a snowsport education pro. Valid ONLY for instructors who took their Level I during this season or last season. Some resorts support this event with lift tickets and as support information becomes available it will be posted here. ** Please Note: If you sign up for this event and do not show up, a $25 cancellation fee will apply.
