The Aesculapian Society


 Heliskiing, & Helihiking Symposiums for health care professionals.

 May we introduce ourselves?  The Aesculapian Society is an international group of conscientious health care related professionals. My name is Dr. Ted Ritota and, with my wife Lisa, we have been conducting Heliskiing &  Helihiking Symposiums for Physicians, Dentists and Health Care Related Professionals since 1991.

 Come join us for an unforgettable heliskiing experience in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.  We ski exclusively with Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH). 


   (Seminar tuition and associated travel, lodging and meal expenses may be tax deductible if the primary purpose of your trip is to maintain or improve professional skills.  Always consult your tax advisor regarding your personal situation.)

  We usually have several trips each year.  There will be two trips in 2018-2019 and two trips next year 2019-2020.


"The Aesculapian Society"
"The educational experiences are real and enlightening!" There is a $240 (via check; $280 via credit card) registration fee for each symposium ($280/check, $295/cc late after Nov 1; these fees reflect a discount for paying by check).  The skiing experience is "The Ultimate"! 
We recommend that you be at least an ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE skierIf you have had no real powder experience, you should expect to struggle for a few days, but you will learn quickly. The Symposium presenters are attending professionals.  We have recently incorporated Heli-Hiking Symposiums into our repertoire using the same format.
