video library

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
As noted I'm starting to build a video library. It's currently on the epicski server however I'm probably going to move it as it will probably eat up a lot of bandwidth when we bring it on line.

I currently have it open for directory browsing and will eventually have it menu driven.

I'm not currently taking new videos until I have more time to sort through them and rename them but if you want to browse through some of them..

Http://video.epicski.com

There is a
MA folder
Reference folder
and a humor folder.

You can link to them for use on our forums but please do not post links to them on other websites or forums as we only have permission to post them here. The logs will tell me if this is being abused and I will turn them off if I find them being referenced by other sites.

dchan,

Thanks! Can you make the thread sticky?

Also...first link works for me, but the second doesn't? I can view either by following the link in the first post and navigating to the ref section.

Will you eventually be accepting additional videos? It seems like we have the potential to create a very extensive database of video here, which will be quite helpful for the instruction section.

Ahh--Michael Milton--yes, he is an extraordinary skier. Teaches at Vail. He appears in the PSIA-Rocky Mountain Functional Skiing For Adaptive Certification DVD, along with Sarah Will, multiple world and para-Olympic champion in the monoski (sitski), and other top athletes, both disabled and able-bodied.

That's a video that I recommend for anyone's collection. It demonstrates all the skiing maneuvers used in the Adaptive Certification exams in Rocky Mountain. There's some great skiing, and because Adaptive instructors must often do things without their poles, and work with students tethered to various kinds of equipment, the maneuvers cross a wide spectrum. They must ski everything from "standard" offensive alpine maneuvers--basic turns, dynamic parallel turns, and so on, in various terrain and conditions--to a variety of step turns, stem turns, and braking/slowing/sideslippping maneuvers. In all, the Functional Skiing Maneuvers are a great set of drills for any alpine skier who wants to get better and more versatile.

Yes, I may be a bit biased, as I filmed, edited, and skied in the DVD. But I'm proud of it, and I do recommend it. I learned a ton about the adaptive world of instruction in putting it together, too--something I had known little about. If anyone wants a real challenge, with little financial reward, but endless satisfaction, get involved in Adaptive instruction somewhere!

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

Bob,

Where can we get the Video/DVD?
post #16 of 17
T-Square--it should be available soon, if it isn't already, from PSIA-Rocky Mountain in Steamboat. Their web address is www.psia-rm.org.

Best regards,
Bob

Bob - that is why I prefer our system with the disabled instruction integrated with the regular system... It means that regular instructors are exposed to this stuff more... and it is far easier on the student - we are a student of the ski school just like everyone else - but we get an instructor with disabled cert as well... (many take disabled cert for their second stream to make the ISIA requirements)

I have skied with examiners and trainers that also carry disabled cert... it is great for me - and I believe it makes them better regular instructors as well...
