PSIA-NRM Adaptive is excited to announce that we are hosting an adaptive event here in Big Sky country. The event will be held at Bridger Bowl Resort just outside Bozeman. Bill Bowness will be here to host two days of clinics on upper level mono-skiing and steeps, and giving an adaptive Level I Exam (Please keep in mind that you will need a beacon for the steeps course, and if you do not have access to one, you will need to let us know).

He currently is the adaptive technical director for DSUSA – Far West at Alpine Resort in the LakeTahoe area.
