Lift Courses:

On Tuesday September 24 a Lift 151/152 course will be offered in Edmonton, in conjunction with the ASM meeting.  This course will provide a great new pre-season training opportunity in a shorter time frame.
This new format will allow for a half-day for each course, focusing on hands on fieldwork training. The course will require online pre-work to be complete prior to attending, and the exams will be taken independently following the course.
The combined program will be offered all-inclusive for $250 (includes lunch on the training day).  This course format was designed to provide a cost effective option for the 151/152 program, so employers would have reduced accommodations and meals costs (1 day versus 2) and reduced travel costs for many.  CLICK HERE for course and registration info.

These courses are not province specific, and all ski areas are welcome to register.
