I am starting my second year as a ski instructor and am PSIA Level 1. The stepping stones approach in PSIA seems sound, but how exactly should you incorporate them into a 90 minute lesson? For example, I think it is important not to introduce too many points in a single lesson, but what is the right balance? I don't want a cookie cutter approach, but rather a variety of lesson plans that one could pull out from memory depending on the skill level, age, fitness, and natural talent of the guests in the class, not to mention the conditions. I am particularly looking for lesson plans that would accommodate 90 minute classes from levels 1 - 5. Thanks for your help.
