Wish List
We are currently looking for sponsors of the following items:

Motorola Digital Portable Radios (10-15 radios)
We have 10 radios we purchased on Ebay few years ago. Few of these radios are going bad and their range is short.
We were looking at the following models, which would work well on the mountain:
Other models, used, refurbished would be gladly accepted.

DVD Camcorder
We would use a digital camcorder for lesson reviews and for training of our instructors. Both the athletes and the instructors benefit a lot from the ability to review their on-snow performance on video. Video camera is an indispensable tool for training.
See the range of digital video cameras that would fit our purpose at We were looking at the following models:
