Our annual general meeting provides both the detailed information about our (now concluded) 2022-2023 season, as well as the guidelines for how we will approach the next season. Whether you are an instructor, a participant, or a caregiver, this meeting will have information relevant to you and your relationship with VISAS.
With another successful season behind us, we are grateful to everyone who contributed. This season we had more than 100 dedicated, enthusiastic instructors and were able to help more participants experience and enjoy both Alpine and Nordic snow sports on Mt. Washington than ever before.
