Canadian resort offers pre-season training
SILVER STAR Mountain Resort is set to be the first Canadian ski resort to offer pre season training for Australian competitions and former Interschools event manager Steve Nelson has been recruited to run the program from 2015.
The four week pre season training program will be specifically designed to meet the needs of promising skiers and snow boarders competing in Interschool snowsports competitions throughout Australia.
Competitive interschools athletes will have access to highly skilled coaches and reliable snow conditions in the coming northern winter.
Participants will train on custom built courses and facilities designed to replicate those in Australia and it will be an exclusive opportunity to further develop skills and fine tune techniques prior to the beginning of the racing season in the southern hemisphere.
Program manager Steve Nelson has a long history in the ski industry, conducting snow sport events and programs since 1998.
Mr Nelson also event managed the Australian and Victorian Interschools SnowSports Championships for 14 years with the Victorian Interschools peaking at 6700 entrants during his tenure and Mr Nelson was the program manager of the Interschools Canada Program from Australia since it was introduced in 2007.
“This is such a thrilling opportunity to join the Silver Star Team.
“I look forward to reconnecting with many of the interschools families and other contacts in the ski industry,” Mr Nelson said.
“The position is an exciting and challenging role that fits the skills and experience I have in the industry perfectly.”
