This module is for all instructors, at all levels, wishing to explore skiing movements and how to use those observations to build lesson plans. We strongly suggest taking this module prior to any on hill exam module.

Why: Being able to observe movements in skiing, understand their cause and effect, and build effective learning outcomes, is critical to skiing development and continuing to foster an excitement for ski learning and growth.

What: This module will work to develop a simple movement analysis tool to help participants learn how to look at turns, what they should be looking for at different phases of the turn, and how to effectively communicate what they see. Participants will work in small groups to practice observing each other's skiing, give and receive feedback, and utilize that feedback to build progressions based on the Five Fundamentals of Skiing.

How: This course will blend indoor video segments with on hill work including observing fellow participants movements, exploring their own movements, and developing real life, real time, progressions to foster performance growth. The participants will experience a variety of turn shapes and skiing tasks to best develop their skill sets and accurately create change with skiers.

Please note that the Alpine Events may be combined in both groups and topics in order to meet participation minimums
