Fall Education Seminars

In Partnership With

Thank you to all who attended NSAA’s Fall Education Seminars with MountainGuard in 2021. We were thrilled to be back in person at 10 regional locations around the country this fall. NSAA and MountainGuard covered two seasons of claims, risk management and legal issues, regulations, new technologies, and operational advances across the industry this year. Each stop of the educational tour focuses on both national issues and regional challenges to showcase and discuss, features guidance and advice from local Association of Ski Defense Attorneys (ASDA), and includes guest speakers from each region.
