Avid Epic reader. MA threads.

In training. I will preface anything I am not 100% sure about. I am to the point where I can see some things---but not all. 50% of the time, I can get the proper action/reaction and skill improvment.

MA Qualifications

FIRST. I don't give MA on this site as there are a lot more people way more qualified etc. than myself. A few times I will answer some questions based on my training, education and experience for beginners etc.

PSIA Level I-5 years teaching, one year in Tahoe and 4 years in No.ldaho

Skiing 35 years
Raced 25 years, Sierra Leage, Masters, NASTAR, Police and Fire Races
Ran Racing-International Firefighters Winter Games, 6 day Event,Tahoe 23yrs
Coordinated/Raced Helped Establish, Austral-Asian Games in Australia 1998

I only have taught PSIA level, on a part time basis. This year I will not teach, may prepare for Level II test and may not. Will go into Canada and Montana and go skiing, putting Camper on truck and taking off.

I'm coming to the US to teach, but also to learn; I want to improve my own performance on skis, and as an instructor.

BASI III qualification; hoping to train for your level II this season in Utah.
First skied in 1980; then again in 87/88; as much as possible since, and quit my "real" job to qualify as an instructor in 04/05.
Taught at Mt Buller in Australia in 05 until snapping my ACL. Now coming back and can't wait.
Looking forward to reading and learning ... don't anticipate much contributing, yet!

FWIW I'm a PSIA Level II, instructor for 8 years, 43 years skiing... Yikes, I'm getting old!
post #70 of 85
Interesting thread, I just read it today. The instructional posts I've found most valuable are often written by highly qualified instructors. Imagine that! So you will understand why my posts are often of little value:

44 years skiing (only a few days some years)
10 years teaching skiing, 3 full-time, Ski Liberty
1 year teaching snowboarding, Whitetail

All that experience and only:

L I Alpine
L I Nordic Downhill
L I Snowboard
post #71 of 85

Just a little bit about myself

21 years skiing, out of 26 total.
8 Years Teaching (3 Part-Time Seasons, 8 Full-Time Seasons)
PSIA Level III Alpine (Passed in NW '04)
Going to get AASI Level II this season

I'm also a Scorpio, enjoy long walks on the beach, and candlelight dinners.
