As a part of the RIDGE experience, every student-athlete must complete an internship throughout the semester. Each student-athlete can choose between ski tech, marketing, and nutrition as their internship option. As a ski tech intern, I have learned about how skis are maintained and built.
Once a week, I help out in our shop to help everyone fix any issues with skis. Also, I learned to wax and tune skis as well as adjust bindings. Recently, a few other student-athletes have gotten scrapes and scratches across the base of their skis. I have enjoyed getting to learn about the different ways to improve the performance of my skis and adjust them to my preference.
