Ski season is upon us: get your ski skills ready for your courses & exams

Most of the ski resorts are now open in Colorado, so it is official – it is time to ski. For those of you who are interested in becoming an AMGA Ski Guide that means you can begin preparing yourself for an upcoming course or exam. Here are a couple of tools that might help. The first is a video showing the AMGA ski standard and the second is a written description of the skis standard.

In addition to these tools, there is an important change coming in 2014 to the ski program. Anyone applying to a Ski Guide Course will need to submit a short skiing video with his or her application. Click on this Ski Video Guidelines link to check out a short description and guidelines for making the video.
