Ski Squaw Valley with NASTC
The All Terrain/All Conditions course is NASTC’s trademark full immersion course designed to get you off that intermediate or advanced plateau. Our highly experience and nationally ranked coaches will help you make the changes you need to meet your skiing goals. Your goals are our goals. Through a successful methodology including breaking down your skiing to its fundamentals, reviewing the building blocks of high-level skiing, video, equipment discussions, fitness recommendations, practical technique/tactics, and lots and lots of mileage, our top trainers will guide you through our step-by-step progression towards total skiing mastery. Squaw and Alpine have it all when it comes to terrain and snow, we are looking forward to skiing with you and sharing these incredible mountains with you. NASTC is based in Tahoe. This has been our home for more than 20 years, and we use our insider knowledge to make your experience here with us fun and memorable.
