Description:

CHANGED DATE to Sunday 24th due to postponed Winter Long Hike to Sat 23rd!!!

Wish that you had a chance to learn how to tele ski in a controlled environment, with a teacher and without a giant pack on your back? Do you know the basics but want to hone those mad skills with the help of someone who can *actually* ski?  Do you want a chance to show off your beautiful style while imparting knowledge to others? 

If you answered yes to any of the above questions than the VOC Tele-School is the trip for you!  This will be a one day instructional even held at the Seymour Mountain resort on the North Shore.  Groups will be organized with a teacher based on skill levels.  These groups will include, 1) 'I have never skied before', 2) 'I can downhill ski, but dont understand how to bend my knees', 3) 'I know the basics but would like to be better', and 4)  'I am an awesome skier and shouldn't be at school'. 

MEET UP at 10am by Seymour Guest Services!

The tickets will be $57 - a bargain for a full day of skiing with 4:1 instruction!  Plus it's super easy to transit to N. Shore.

We will meet at the Guest Services by the Upper Parking lot at 9:45am.

We will also hopefully be offering discount tickets for people who just want to do some cheaper skiing on Seymour that day.

INSTRUCTORS NEEDED!!!  If happy to instruct please sign up on the wiki: http://www.ubc-voc.com/wiki/Tele_School_2016.
