We work very closely with the Ski School and with PSIA both regionally and nationally. We provide training and services and have ongoing dialogue with the ski school here and others in the Rocky Mountain Division.
If a Ski Pro (that's what we call 'schoolers here in Aspen/Snowmass) understands how to recognize when something is wrong and how to describe what they see, it can be very beneficial for all concerned.
It also makes their job easier. If an individual is not standing right, it isn't realistic to expect them to move correctly, nor get an accurate result from their motions.
An Instructor who understands enough about stance and alignment to recognize problems is a great asset for our business.
It is also a great asset for the Instructor, it shows a Client that they understand why that person might be struggling and sets up a follow up lesson.
We don't need them to guess that the individual is 1.5 degrees overedged on their left leg or that they need a 3mm gas pedal. But if they have seen that the Client's left skis diverges on turn initiation, or that the person is overflexed, that is great input.
