The second day of the event is by invitation only.

"We are delighted to be hosting this event again, which in past years has always been extremely successful. Not only will the two days be educational for attendees, they also promise to be a lot of fun with like-minded individuals meeting together to share their knowledge and experience," said the CEO of Snowsport Scotland, Rob Claridge.

"Our members and also non-members with a keen interest in the sport are very important to us and we believe events such as this enables them to progress and continually improve their skillset. It can be very easy to slip into bad habits and refresher courses such as this - which is valid for a year - allows coaches and leaders the chance to improve their skills and techniques in an open and interactive environment to ensure they continue to deliver their coaching to the highest possible standards," added Rob.
