Nickel Plate Masters Programs


This season we are offering two streams of masters programming. The first is our ever-popular group skis lead by CANSI instructor Rick Watson. Rick’s critical eye and knowledge of the sport will help you improve your technique in a fun, group environment.

And we are introducing a Masters race training program this year. Designed to promote lifelong fitness and enjoyment of sport, the Nickel Plate Masters Racing program helps athletes reach and maintain their full skiing potential. Headed up by Coach Jessica Roach, participants will be guided toward both technical proficiency and top physical condition. Jessica herself is an accomplished ski racer from Ontario and came up under the tutelage of Jack Sasseville.

  • Designed for adult athletes
  • Saturday is group training combined with the youth program
