Oh SnoWolf!! This one's for you.

I have found in the last few weeks that I've enjoyed teaching people how to ski/snowboard so much... not to AASI standards but to the local here's how you do it... and they get it... I mean watching people fall or whatever is funny from time to time but the real sense of accomplishment comes from seeing people start to really click with it and begin to enjoy the sport(s) that I enjoy so much...

So my curiosity lies within this: what does it take to get certified and how much does it cost... on average or in your area, I'd love to know that I'm teaching people the approved (best way) to ski/snowboard.. which I'd probably try for snowboarding first as I assume they are different courses.. but please let me know, I'd love to know I could secure a job teaching in CO or UT.. like it would be a dream job for me I believe...


Thanks! and yes I'm drinking, shut your damn judgmental mouths

I wanted a sig, but I need a job first.

Teaching a Nebraskan on the bluffs and a morman is probably about the same from the moral and political perspective...but I'd imagine that to get certified, you'd need to get off the "bluffs of misery" and spend some time on a real hill. Former Nebraskan

NE falls within the the Rocky Mountain Division of PSIA/AASI. Visit the website for the info you need.

PSIA - Rocky Mountain Division - AASI

Its 100.00 to join AASI
  1. The cost for clinics during the 2010/11 season
  2. $80/day for most clinics
  3. $90/day for Specialty and Spring Fling clinics.
  4. $130/day for exam and certification days (some exams are at different prices)
  5. $240.00 for ITC (cert 1 exam that would be the first step)
Hope this information helps. Also there are still Cert 1 exams still available for this year at places like a-basin.

hehe bluffs of misery..

Inevitably I'd like to move somewhere with a real hill... but I'm thinking (from what I heard) there is a place 2 hours from here where they certify you in like two days for level 1? I just kind of want to understand how that whole process works..

Sounds good, I'm thinking the closest place with a certified program is about three hours away from me.. our ski school has gone to the dumper, the manager left, we only have one PSIA cert'd instructor but I don't believe he is qualified to give cert 1 exams.. so yeah, I'll see how it goes, thank you for the website though - checking that out now.
