National Ski Patrol Specific—Alpine
*This event is open to NSP members only. NSP members who are not PSIA AASI Central Members are also welcome for an additional fee.
NSP certified participants will explore specific tasks and movements to further develop and refine their ski/ride skills as they relate to their transportation responsibilities. The group will review the 5 Fundamentals as they relate to stance and pressure management, and the changes associated with stance and edge angles while managing additional weight during transportation-like exercises. The rest of the day will be spent exploring performance ski/ride skills, and solid technique for managing the steeps.
What: Participants will leave with a renewed understanding of the 5 Fundamentals, the application of those fundamentals as they relate to weight and pressure changes when transporting toboggans, and some specific feedback for better performance skiing/riding.
Why: Performance skiing/riding is critically important to the patroller. Resort guests relate the quality of a patroller’s snow sports performance to the quality of their medical care. Reviewing the Fundamentals, having a clear understanding and application of those Fundamentals, and playing and exploring with colleagues will make you a better patroller, as you serve the snow sports industry.
How: This group will engage all of the learning modalities as we seek to discuss, play, explore and refine our ski & ride skills.
It’s rare that we cancel an entire event unless the resort/area is closed, but we often find it necessary to cancel or combine sessions at an event because the session minimum has not been met. When this happens, we will contact you as early as possible and offer other session options at the same event or transfer you to another event. Cancellation and transfer fees do not apply under these circumstances. If we cancel a session you are registered for, and it is not possible for you to attend another event by the end of the season, your registration fee sub any administrative fees will be refunded. If you are in need of education credits for this season then all possible pathways must be exhausted before a waiver is granted. (Webinars, Non ASEA Events, etc.)”
