2018-2019 Western Region ASDW

2018-2019 Alpine Skills Development Workshop

Hosted by Wild Mountain Ski and Snowboard Area -- Thank You Wild!

Ski/Ride Session – SES (Snowsports Enhancement Seminar)

An SES (Snowsports Enhancement Seminar) held by the NSP-C Ski School. Skiing clinics are taught by PSIA ski instructors and are open to all patrollers in the Region. This session will explore the fundamental standards of skiing/riding at the core of the sport. Telemark skiing will also be available! As ski patrollers, we need to be able to ski/ride in a way that presents a clear image of an NSP patroller to the public. We will employ activities that explore movements and build skills to create successful learning experiences to allow our patrollers to progress in challenging activities. This session is open to all patrollers.
If you are a Senior candidate and want to work on skiing skills specific to the Senior S&T exam, sign-up for this session. At the event, please inform the instructors your desire to work on the Senior skills. They will tailor instruction to you for the day.  NSP Course #: TBD

Toboggan Session – (OET Workshop)

This session will provide instruction and guided practice on proper usage and handling of alpine rescue toboggans. It is the intent to have experienced NSP-C Western Region staff instructor trainers present proper and current techniques to properly handle an unloaded and loaded toboggan on suitable terrain. This session is open to all patrollers.
If you are a Senior candidate and want to work on toboggan skills specific to the Senior S&T exam, sign-up for this session. At the event, please inform the instructors your desire to work on the Senior skills. They will tailor instruction to you for the day.  NSP Course #: TBD

Toboggan Instructor Calibration (Re-certification)

This session is designed for current Toboggan Instructors that need re-certification to retain their toboggan instructor certification. Toboggan Instructors are required to re-certification every three years.

Open to current toboggan instructors.  NSP Course #: TBD

Senior Evaluator Calibration Session

This session is for ASE re-certification and for Senior Alpine Evaluator candidates or anyone wishing to pursue ASE (Accredited Senior Evaluator) accreditation. The ASE program is for patrollers not currently interested in pursuing PSIA/AASI credentials but still want to become Senior Alpine Evaluators. This is a prep course offered by the Region and will focus on current Senior alpine standards, the Senior score card, movement analysis, feedback modeling, evaluations, and technical knowledge.
