Wednesdays with Wendy – Intermediate Clinic I March 13

For each lesson, Wendy Fisher, local Olympian, will help you improve your skiing skills and style, as well as work with you to overcome any inner fears you might have. For many, fear can be the biggest obstacle restricting the advancement of one’s skiing level. 

Learning to read terrain while improving technique will leave you with a greater level of confidence and skills that will enhance your skiing experience at Crested Butte Mountain Resort and beyond.

Lesson Time: 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

Participants should not plan to get out to the famed Crested Butte Extremes on that particular day. This depends entirely on whether the whole group is comfortable and ready.
