North American Ski Training & Climbing School Clinic

Challenge your skills with this adventure skiing skill building week-long clinic hosted by NASTC trainers.

A special 3-day event just for women, led by ski racing champion and renowned ski coach Lisa Ballard. YOUR TURN - BIG SKY is part of a national program led by Lisa, with the help of Big Sky's talented women pros. Improve your technique and tactics on a variety of terrain and conditions, learn about trends in women's ski gear to help you ski better, and master the mental side of skiing. It's YOUR TURN to have a great three days on the slopes!

Maximum 18 participants - 3 ski groups with 6 per group based on ability level, pace, and skiing goals.
With Big Sky's vast and varied terrain, you'll ski where you never thought you could. This clinic takes you through a progression that gives you the know-how and confidence to ski with grace on different slopes and snow conditions. Each day builds on the previous one, using drills, video analysis, and individualized feedback on the hill. You can pick specific things you wish to work on as the clinic progresses, such as how to ski powder or steeps, what to do with your hands, how to carve on the groomers or master the bumps—all with the knowledge and camaraderie of Lisa and Big Sky's top coaches.
The minimum ability required for this clinic is a parallel skier on groomed blue (intermediate) terrain.
