Welcome to our World-Wide Adventure Ski School and to our Rock Climbing School on Donner Summit!
The North American Ski Training & Climbing School (NASTC) was founded in 1994 as a unique performance ski school offering multi-day, full immersion and adventure ski training clinics for intermediate through expert skiers taught by members of the PSIA National Demonstration Team and AMGA certified guides. Based in Lake Tahoe, CA, NASTC offers all-mountain free-skiing clinics all over the world. NASTC’s methodology towards ski improvement is based on a comprehensive approach addressing fitness, equipment, skiing technique and tactics. The total immersion teaching approach is not a quick fix or band-aid approach. It is a multi-layered process that not only results in better skiing but positively affects the body, mind, and spirit. At NASTC you truly improve your skiing – a full level! And you get to do this at the best resorts and mountain ranges in the world, led by the top instructors in the world, in a group with adventure enthusiasts like yourself who also leave their professional world behind to enjoy these focused clinics.
In 2002 we founded our rock climbing school as well, with a mission to offer all ages and abilities a fun chance to climb with friends or family on Donner Summit. Donner offers world-class granite, its famous for it. If you talk to avid climbers, Donner Summit is on their to-do list, just like Yosemite. When you join us for an individual or group lesson, we provide all the gear (bring your own if you have it) and meet you up on the rock ready!
