2020 AAOS /AOSSM/AANA Sports Medicine Course
AAOS/AOSSM/AANA, together with Phil and Steve Mahre are pleased to announce a bucket-list opportunity to:
"Ski with an Olympian"
Phil and Steve competed in 3 Olympic games, and between them brought home 3 medals.
Lake Placid 1980
and Sarajevo in 1984 where they won Gold and Silver in the Slalom
Two sessions with each Phil and Steve will be offered daily during the planned recreation time. Each session will run 2 - 2.5 hours and include skiing in a small group (4 people max/group) with either Phil or Steve. Groups will be assigned by ability level and include free skiing as well as tips to help you improve. We will ski WITH YOU, on slopes that are comfortable for your ability level. If you want tips and pointers, we are always happy to help! If you just want to rip some turns with us, we are up for that as well! This opportunity is available to course attendees and their families and guests.
The cost is $250.00 per person, per session. Requests to ski with a specific group (your entire family, etc) or on a specific day will be honored as long as space is available.
You will be scheduled into a group on a first come, first served basis. Be sure to register early as there are limited spots available!
Groups will be separated by ability:
Advanced Beginner: comfortable skiing on green runs and ready to try a few blue runs
Advanced: Comfortable skiing on blue runs and ready to try a few black runs
Expert: Comfortable skiing on all types of terrain and in all conditions
