The 9/23 CCSAA Round Table Zoom Call was centered around Ski Instruction in the COVID world. 

Please remember that his is a very fluid situation and that we are discussing solutions for the situation we believe we will be in as winter nears.

We understand that every Nordic center presents its own set of parameters and limitations, and that there will not be a one solution that fits all Nordic centers.  We also are concerned with any reduction of capacity and are looking at how to create new systems that do not rely on cutting our existing skier capacity or any revenue stream.

 The panel members Nick Herrin, Emily Lovett and Greg Rhodes walked the group through the PSIA document Navigating the 2020-21Snosports Season.  The document speaks for itself, so I will not recap that presentation.  Three are many resources on the final page of that document.
