The Magic of Skiing 2017
with Thomas Crum
and selected Aspen Ski Company Ski and Snowboard Professionals

Saturday, January 28 - Friday, February 3, 2017

Imagine being in the fabulous Rocky Mountain resort of Aspen, residing in view of Aspen Mountain, skiing and snowboarding some of the most magnificent and varied terrain in the world with great ski and riding instructors in an optimal learning environment, making new friends, and creating balance in your life at the same time!

This program can bring you back to yourself, and help you be in the moment every time.
Katie Ertl, Managing Director--Ski/Snowboard Schools of Aspen/Snowmass

The Magic of Skiing with Thomas Crum is Aspen Skiing Company's longest running specialty program for a good reason: we focus on the "big picture." We don't just see skiing or riding as a series of techniques to get right. We view the art of skiing as a vehicle for self-awareness, an opportunity to become more conscious, to cultivate appreciation, and to discover how to unify the mind and body to achieve inner peace.

All this, while having even MORE fun on the mountain!

Love the camaraderie -- everyone is so positive and supportive; great energy and spirit.
Phil Kendall, Colorado Springs, CO

The Magic of Skiingcombines full days of skiing/riding with Thomas Crum's off-mountain training, a totally unique and enriched learning experience. You will find yourself creating more balance -- not just in your skiing/riding but in your relationships and your life experiences.

All this, in the fabulous Rocky Mountain resort of Aspen, Colorado, home of the most magnificent and varied terrain in the world.

This program gives all of us the true essence of skiing. Thank you for changing my life for the better.
Doug McDaniel, Lostine, OR
