    that doesn't seem to cover tele, just xc

    in the past did it have coaching programs for xc racers ? that doesn't seem to be covered by the links, except where done by clubs or as part of the state or national development groups. AFAIK in Vic lift companies have no role in xc coaching, except helping with training facilities in really bad snow conditions

    Tele (lifted) seems to be the poor unwanted orphan of the Australin alpine resort family - getting less recognition than in the 80s when I found he sport.

    I know it's small here (total nos.; lesson & equipment availability; competition, etc...) but it bizarre how little support & recognition the various lift companies provide to Tele. If this treatment was dished out to freebie or snowboard these disciplines would have not become mainstream.

    The inability for the public to take a group lesson has a significant effect here - often only offering one off private lessons at roughly double the price. And these private lessons are poorly advertised & hard to find.

    Then try hiring the gear at the resort - it's usually has to be done in Melbourne, Sydney, Mt Beauty, Myrtleford or Jindabyne - not great for an impromptu tel day as part of ones longer holiday.

    Then you have SSA (who I know do great work - I read their newsletters) who don't officially recognise Tele as a winter sport - never mind assist with coaching and development. Something to do with Tele not being an Olympic sport (yet!).

    All in a big damp squib effort Aussie. Must do better' (D-).

    SG rant over for this am! ⛷

    PWSC is a commercially run business largely focused on preparing athletes for SSA/FIS competition. I'm not sure what competition exists in the tele space, but if it does, and if enough people request that sort of training, I'm sure that PWSC would facilitate if it fitted with their business model.
