About APP Clinics and Events
The Annual Spring Clinic is held in late April, and is a 4 to 5 day event offering the same written and practical exam opportunities at the Mid-Winter Clinics. In addition, there is a patrol director forum, a women's forum, and evening event(s) with special guest speaker(s). Other past forums/clinics held at Mid-Winter and the Spring Clinics, include concentrations in Risk Management, Avalanche Control, Science and Demonstrations, Avalanche Rescue Dog Training, to name a few. Each Spring Clinic most often includes a special guest speaker. Past speakers have included world renown leaders such as Warren Miller, Peter Croft, Shane McConkey, Scott Schmidt and Royal Robbins.Attendance at any of the Mid-Winter Clinics or the Spring Clinic also allows you to take advantage of the skiing/boarding during the Clinic at the respective hills. For most APP-Sponsored Events, APP Membership is required - see details on each event for fees, activities, tests offered and options.
