Spring Academy & Spring Rally

Greetings Spring Academy and Spring Rally Attendees!!

The final events of the season are right around the corner! As you may have guessed, the Spring Academy and Spring Rally will be slightly different this year due to social distancing requirements. We are not able to provide any formal Après Ski Activities on Thursday or Saturday. There will be plenty of other opportunities to create your own social hour either tailgating or via Zoom meetings. Right now the weather looks promising with some snow showers on Thursday and temps in the 40’s for the weekend.

Please plan on meeting your groups near the “PSIA-AASI Logo Feather Banners” set up on the slopeside side of the lodge at 8:45am booted up ready to ski/ride. Due to the small size of the rally, we will not have breakout teaching focus as we have had in the past. Groups will still be split by intensity, focus and topics however those will be determined on the morning of. Please see list of staff working below and more specific meeting location:
