  • Group size: 40
  • Instructor: Greg DeHaven

This is more than an informational clinic. This is an experience, the beginning of an adventure that can become part of your life, for the rest of your life. Join Greg DeHaven for an evening full of information, insider tips, and guidance to get you ready for your first ski trip. When you head to the resort, being prepared will help you be ready for an amazing new experience in nature. Greg's involvement in racing, race coaching, private instruction, and as a dad has provided him with a mountain of knowledge. He will cover numerous topics, including: the mountain environment, what to wear, ski equipment and how to use it, rent vs own, what to expect, managing your qear, the value of taking lessons, and even a brief Learn to Ski lesson. This is a very relaxed, interactive session, with plenty of time for your questions throughout the presentation. Greg will make himself available at the conclusion of the program for your specific questions, and for sharing more of his "stoke". Our goal is that by taking the time to attend this clinic, you will be excited and well prepared to try skiing and, quite possibly, to make skiing part of your life. See you there and Think Snow!
