Had the opportunity to attend PSIA-RM-AASI Fall Training in Breckenridge last week.
Clinics I attended on day one:
- Movement Analysis Applications,
- Area Representative lunch (sort of),
- Coaching Exam Maneuvers,
- 2010-2011 Exam Process clinics.
Day two clinics I attended:
- Personal Riding Improvement in the morning,
- Progression Building in the afternoon.
All in all it involved a lot of skiing. The snow at Breck was awesome. We even skied the T-Bar which opened this year earlier than any other year in history. Got to reconnect with lots of friends and get myself brushed up and reminded of all things ski instructor/trainer related. The focus at this event is ski/ride school trainer and management level. I got to go because I am the “PSIA-RM-AASI Area Rep” at Monarch Mountain. It seems to me that no one truly seems to know exactly what that means functionally. I’ve heard it described as an extension to the Division’s staff. But exactly how I operate specifically in that role at my area is still a little unclear to me. Apparently I am a liaison between the instructor staff and the Division staff which should ultimately be a help to Division and Monarch management.
