Skiers take to slopes

Sports Editor
With a plentiful snowfall this
winter, the Clackamas Ski and
snowboarding classes are bound
to leave students cuttin’ up the
H The CCC ski program has
been around for many years, but
according to Maria Wynia, health/
fitness teacher ayd campus coor­
dinator for the ski program, this
is "the first year that Clackamas
has a three-term ski program."
Wynia has been teaching at
CCC for 13 years, but has only
been in charge of the ski pro­
gram for a few years. She is
excited about having a spring ski
program and said it should attract
many students.
With this change, students
can now enroll in ski classes during
Fall, Winter or Spring Term for
lessons at Timberline or Mt. Hood
The Timberline course in­
structors utilize the American
Teaching System (ATS). It is
recognized worldwide as the
leading method in skill develop­
ment and teaching methodology.
Besides stressing improvement
in ski ability, the Timberline Ski
School's objectives consist of
safety while skiing, athletic ac-
tivity/skiing fitness, technical
skills of skiing in varied condi­
tions, knowledge of ski or snow­
board equipment and mainte­
nance, social interaction and en­
joyment of skiing as a lifetime
All instruction will be pro­
vided by certified ski instructors.
Depending on experience, stu­
dents can take beginning, inter­
mediate or advanced lessons.
Students may also choose which
type of lessons they would like.
The ski program offers alpine
downhill, nordic (cross country)
and telemark skiing and snow­
boarding classes.
Students who really love to
ski, snowboard or just love being
outdoors should consider this one-
credit class to go toward their
physical education requirement.
The cost of each class varies, de­
pending on which package the
student selects. But overall prices
are reasonable. Students could
actually wind up saving a little
money because of the package
