Becoming a Member

Turn your passion into your profession:

If you live for winter and simply can’t help yourself from sharing your love of snowsports with others, PSIA-AASI membership can help you bring together your passion and the highest professional standards to create more meaningful experiences as a snowsports instructor anywhere you may work.


As a member, you join a community of instructors who share your commitment to being the best at what you do. You will learn from professional athletes and teachers during dryland and on-hill education clinics and during certification exams. Your membership dues enroll you as a member in both PSIA-AASI National AND Central Regions. You’ll interact with fellow instructors throughout the region and the country to share best practices, tactics and teaching techniques for lessons that ROCK!


As you improve your personal skiing/riding and understanding of the sport you will become more valuable to your snowsport school employer, translating to higher employment and wages for you. PSIA-AASI credentials are valued and portable worldwide and serve as a passport to work across the globe. 

Teaching and Professional Excellence:

But the benefits of membership don’t end at the slopes.  The personal and professional development you experience will be applicable in your “real job” as well.  Could you benefit from:

  • Improved personal and professional communication skills,
  • Organizational skills, working with groups and individuals as a member of a team,
  • Learning to work well with others from all walks of life – from children to seniors to those with special needs?

Professional Resources and Discounts:

A variety of professional educational and technical resources are included in membership, along with professional gear discounts–along with other benefits.

**Note:  Discounts and education waivers are available to students, seniors, and active service personnel.  Learn more here.
