The NSP Nordic Program is designed to help patrollers develop
and refine the skills and knowledge that ski area management or governing
agencies require of patrollers who carry out their patrol duty on nordic
equipment. To help instructors train nordic members, the national nordic
committee has established several areas of nordic training.
The Mother Lode Region Nordic Program has two main goals. The
first goal is to assist nordic patrols develop nordic toboggan instructors. The
second goal is to assist nordic patrollers become Nordic Senior patrollers by
holding Nordic Senior Ski and Toboggan clinics and evaluations.
