Course Description:
Seniors groups are springing up all over the country. With names like "Silver Wings" and "Prime Time." The focus is on enjoying the thrill of winter sports and the mountain environment. Their purpose also includes a social component as they look for ways to meet and interact with others now that they don't have jobs to go to and their children have reached adulthood and are busy with their own lives and families.
Experience first-hand the physical, psychological and social challenges the aging skier faces on a regular basis. Modify your lesson to enhance the experience of the senior skier.

Learning Experiences:
-- Developing an understanding of the challenges a senior skier may have.
-- Developing and understanding how to teach skills to seniors.
-- Exploring and pacing information.
-- Exploring and understanding effective communication techniques.
-- Developing skiing activities on different terrain that can help explore the mountain safely.
