The APP offers first class clinics, events and forums.  Each winter, the APP schedules between 4 and 6 Mid-Winter Clinics where participants can take written exams, and are able to take many of the practical exams depending upon the ski conditions, weather and judge availability. These Clinics are held over a 1 to 3 day period at first class resorts throughout the Western United States.  At many of the Mid-Winter Clinics, the APP also puts on networking events, evening socials, special educational events and "behind the scene tours" that are unique to the particular hill hosting the Clinic.  

The Annual Spring Clinic is held in late April, and is a 4 to 5 day event offering the same written and practical exam opportunities at the Mid-Winter Clinics.  In addition, there is a patrol director forum, a women's forum, and evening event(s) with special guest speaker(s). Other past forums/clinics held at Mid-Winter and the Spring Clinics, include concentrations in Risk Management, Avalanche Control, Science and Demonstrations, Avalanche Rescue Dog Training, to name a few.  Each Spring Clinic most often includes a special guest speaker.  Past speakers have included world renown leaders such as Warren Miller, Peter Croft, Shane McConkey, Scott Schmidt and Royal Robbins.  

Attendance at any of the Mid-Winter Clinics or the Spring Clinic also allows you to take advantage of the skiing/boarding during the Clinic at the respective hills.  For most APP-Sponsored Events, APP Membership is required - see details on each event for fees, activities, tests offered and options.
