Approximately 2% of the Division NSP membership took MTRF, MTR I or MTR II course this past 2008-2009 season. This is an excellent historical increase! We have dropped down from the larger spike during 2007-2008 ski season when 3.1% participated with MTR courses. However program attendance is up from the historic data that fell between 0.8 to 1.4%.
Weather is always a challenge for MTR programs, for have an outdoor components.
At this point, the major educational event is the fall Tri-Advisory Conference in Yosemite Valley, which is a joint multi-discipline educational conference hosted by FWD. Avalanche, and Nordic NSP instructors receive division continuing educational credit when attending the FWDs Tri-Advisory event.

MTR Instructors across our 5 Regions:
Mother Lode Region:
Currently there are 8 instructors, three less from last year. Three are ITs. One new IT was appointed from Bear Valley in anticipation of MTR courses being held there.
Eastern Sierra Region:
There are 10 instructors, down from 11 last year. Two are ITs
There are 2 in the Region, including 1 in the Alumni.
Northern California Region:
There are no registered MTR instructors in this Region. No change from past years.
Southern California Region:
Currently there are 17 registered instructors, an increase of one. With 3 ITs.
Change to fewer instructors is due to the non-renewal of several who had not taught and elected not to continue their NSP instructor status.
The Pinecrest Nordic MTR course was miss-registered by an Avalanche instructor as an avalanche course.
Sierra Summit never completed the MTR I overnight field portion of their course
Bear Valley plan was to have the next MTR I course during the 2009-10 season.
188.8.131.52 Plan for 2009-2010 Season:
Plan: With the addition of an IT at Bear Valley this MTR instructor will be mentoring prospective MTR instructors next year
Plan: To encourage Hills to encourage members to attend MTR classs, and to encourage Regional Administrators to let Hills know when a course is planned, and where. To encourage and support each Region Administrator to have at least one MTR instructor at each hill in their Region.
Plan: Visit a MTR field session. This showed there are several prospective instructors that were viewed by a So Calif MTR IT and all received a thumbs-up. All prospective instructors must first take the MTR II course.
Objective:Hold a M TR II course next season
Plan: Attend a I or II field session or classroom session (3-regions).
