Ski Tech Training

Yesterday concluded a 2 day training program at the North Conway EMS organized by Ellen Moran, the Product Manager for AT and Telemark skis for Eastern Mountain Sports. In attendance were ski techs from 10 EMS stores and 2 Customer Service Reps.

Morning clinics

Product Reps from Black Diamond, G3, Scarpa, Dynafit, K2, 22 Designs, Marker, and Rossignol put on clinics through out the 1st day covering their current lines. On the 2nd day hands on training included custom boot fitting and binding mounting.

Towards the end I gave a short talk/slideshow on Backcountry Safety, Avalanche Courses, and Beacons.

Backcountry Safety discussion

It’s EMS’s commitment to training like this that helps us continue to be the most authentic, knowledgable outfitter out there! I know I walked away with a tremendous amount of information and some product manuals I’ll be referring to when need be!
