Interesting. So you cant start your ski instructor training before you master a SL course? That would be a problem for a lot of instructors I know.....

This SL test is called: "test technique".

LOL. Unfortunately, many (most?) U.S. instructors today can't even ski a NASTAR course correctly. If you would put them in a full blown SL course, you better have a med flight helicopter on speed dial to get them to an ICU. Which wasn't always the case. When I first got involved in coaching, many of the instructors on the ski school side were pretty good racers. It seems like a lot of the new PSIA types almost think race training is some sort of evil now. Never mind that most of the kids in our race program are better all around skiers than most of the newer instructors. I have a lot of friends that are instructors, and the only ones I know that actively race league or Masters are the older ones 40 years old +.
