Hi I'm taking the level 100 coaches clinic early in the season. Can anyone tell me about the examination criteria for passing the clinic?

I've looked at the page and I know they are looking for

"The criteria for passing the skiing portion of the Alpine Fundamentals course is based on the phase 2 and 3 exercises of the SkillsQuest skiing assessment, including pole jumpers, pivot slips, outside ski skiing, one ski skiing and a technical assessment on intermediate groomed terrain."

 

My question is, "Is the skiing scored at a PSIA level 2 standard or Level 3 standard"

 

I haven't skied all summer, but I'll probably try to get out on the snow a few days before the exam.

 

thanks

I've never taken a PSIA exam so I can't directly answer your question however, I can tell you to focus on the drills in the Alpine Ski Fundamentals ll cd, keep your weight on the balls of your feet and listen closely to your clinician and you will do fine. There will be times that you will be pushed out of your comfort zone but just relax, go with the flow and have fun.The Level 100 covers fundamental skills required for good, solid skiing. The pivot slips and whirlybirds will go toward edge control while most of the other drills will lead toward balance and carving. Good Luck!!
