*This event is open to NSP members only. NSP members who are not PSIA AASI Central Members are also welcome for an additional fee of $25.
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.
IMPORTANT: All events are subject to our normal registration and change/cancellation policy. Fees may apply if registering, cancelling, or changing your registration less than two weeks prior to the event.
All PSIA/AASI members must follow the PSIA/AASI code of conduct.
