Course Description (CEN- Synchro Skills for Pattern Making and Breaking.):

Alpine/Telemark


Synchro skiing gets a bad rap as a tired tool of ski instruction, the practice has some great qualities for developing and honing your skills.


  • Synchro is a fantastic tool for M.A.-- you'll learn to see and feel how your turns differ from those of your partner(s)- and ideally learn not only how to adjust, but how to describe the adjustment.


  • Synchro Skiing develops spatial awareness and visual acuity, helping participants maintain track of their position relative to their partner(s) in front, in back, and to the side.


  • Synchro Skiing breaks your movement patterns- like a race course or a mogul run, Synchro Skiing forces you to change your timing, rhythm, and D.I.R.T. to keep the group moving in unison.


  • Synchro Skiing helps you plan and create. You'll contemplate how changing pitch and conditions can affect your outcomes and consider a variety of synchro patterns.


This event is open to non-members-- participants should be able to ski in parallel on a variety of turn shapes and sizes on groomed runs of green-through-black designation.


May be conducted in one day or multiple evening formats.






Course Description (Cen- Your Basic Everything Bagel (Alpine)):

PSIA events have a tendency to "Start in the Middle"- and a good deal of the knowledge needed to enter the conversation comes from experience.


This means that some participants hesitate to speak up-- maybe they are part time, and don't get to have the locker-room discussions. Maybe their Level I was a long time ago, or the content lacked context. Maybe a concept or exercise just never got explained.


This course is designed to explore the basic premises of PSIA-- from the Skills Concept to The Five Fundamentals, The Learning Connection to D.I.R.T., Everything and Anything related to teaching ski instruction can be part of the dialogue.


So many terms and concepts are bandied about during clinics- and sometimes it is difficult to be the one to raise your hand and say "I don't know what that means", or "I don't understand this exercise."


Your Basic Everything Bagel means you, your clinician, or one of your peers seeds the dialogue with a question, and you see where it goes.


Your clinician's role is that of "The Well of Tacit Knowledge"- meaning if they don't have the answer, they'll find it for you.


Conducted over one day or two evenings, open to non-members, highly recommended for reinstating members.









Course Description (Performance Skiing - 1 day):

This offering is an excellent opportunity for experienced instructors to work collaboratively, exploring the skiing fundamentals in applied situations. The group will learn to make situational changes to edging, rotary, balance, and pressure movements during this course. Participants will leave with a further understanding of the skiing fundamentals regarding tactics and terrain, body movements, and ski performance.


What: In this course, participants will explore dynamic skiing. They will factor for outside forces and variations in terrain, applying appropriate skill blends and maintaining the 5 fundamentals in order to ensure optimal ski and body performance.

Why: High-level skiing is both fun and exciting- the creation and execution of which is both an art and a science, with a foundation in technique and understanding.

How: Situational skiing- clinic leaders will seek opportunities to change up the skill blend to challenge participants' abilities and concepts.



Course Description (CEN- I've got a Task 4 That (Alpine)):

What- "I've got a Task 4 That" is designed to connect "Tasks" (the exercises and drills we employ to develop our skiing) to the outcome we are seeking to achieve. Instructors who may have heard of an exercise or drill, but have not understood why the task exists, or how to connect it to the desired take-away of the student.


Who- This course is for any instructor seeking to reach into a bigger tool-bag, and to pull out the "right" exercise or drill for the student they are teaching.


Why- Our students expect us to brilliantly prescribe, not to randomly sample.





Additional Event Details:

Our "Multiple Option Clinic" events allow you to choose from a variety of courses to find your best fit. Most Multi-Option Clinics will include a "I want my Skis to ________", Performance Skiing, Synchro Skills, and "I've got a Task 4 That", Performance Skiing, and "Alpine Agility Drills."


Not all events will have all options, groups with registrations below course minimums may be combined.
