Clearly, for @hibeams, winter has arrived! Resorts are opening and snow is falling. We are almost sold out with spots remaining only in our Saturday clinic at @coppermtn. With the season upon us, remember to not get complacent and always check the avy reports before heading out. If there’s enough snow to ski there’s enough snow to slide! // 📸: @colin_wise_man

Did we mention the raffle at each of our clinics? With the generous support of our sponsors, we are pretty sure that this raffle is hard to beat and is a huge bonus to joining us for a fun and informational day. All of the proceeds from the raffle go towards benefiting the @hi5sfoundation @savycenter & the @friendsofcaic this year. We seriously have the best prizes 🙋! / #safeasclinics

Have you heard about our scholarship program? The most important part of SAFE AS is having as many people involved and educated as possible. We offer scholarships to anyone age 14 and up who are in need of financial support to begin or continue on their path of snow safety and education. Please visit www.safeasclinics.com to apply and get a chance to attend our clinic free of charge! Huge thank you to @coalitionsnow and @shejumps for helping to make the scholarship program possible! // 📸: @jenschmidtphoto / #safeasclinics

There’s a lot to be excited about for this years clinics, like the fact that @hibeams is joining us for our @squawalpine stops on the 9th and 10th of December! Last year Hana volunteered her time to join us up in WA and her desire to share her passion for the mountains is clearly strong. We are honored to have her on board! Hana’s stoke always adds to the experience. // @ridesnowboards

We all have a girl crush on our favorite instructor and hero @leltone! She is likely thinking about the fact that we just sold out on our Sunday clinic at @squawalpine. There is a little space left on our Saturday clinic (9th) and we are still excited about out @coppermtn stops (2nd & 3rd of Dec.) please help spread the word for our Copper clinics! We love teaching as many ladies as possible. 😊 // 📸: @jenschmidtphoto / #safeasclinics / #skicalifornia

@elysesaugstad and @myshellparker hosted an impromptu clinic at @squawalpine this past week on behalf of @hi5sfoundation for their next BASICS video. High Fives plays a huge role in our action sports community to help athletes recover from life altering injuries and have also expanded in increasing awareness for injury prevention. We are always grateful to team up with them! Thanks for a great day! | 📷: @fractal_filmco #safeasclinics #squawvalley
