PSIA-AASI NORTHWEST

EVENT CALENDAR

The calendar is still being updated with events, please continue to check back for updates.

If at any time you have questions please call/text us 206-244-8541 or email info@psia-nw.org.

We are working to place online, and on snow, events for you. The only constant is change, we hope less than last year. Please check our COVID page for any updates due to the virus. If you don’t feel well, let us know and stay home. Before any on snow event, we will have a list of health questions for you to complete. On snow events will be direct to lift, your car your “chalet” for the day, masks are required, social distancing expected, following all resort rules, and loads of patience :). 

And the usual, we make every effort to run all events. If the event you are registering for cancels for any reason, we will notify you.

Education Credits

Continuing education (CEU) events are designed to help you learn and grow as a snowsports professional. They also serve as an opportunity for you to keep up-to-date on the latest techniques and trends in your discipline. Every certified member of the NW Division is required to attend at least 6 CEU each season (usually one day on snow). 

All events, online sessions, etc. will list the number of CEUs provided.

Note on Education Credits

You may only accrue up to 12 CEU; i.e. if you attend a one-day event in January for 6 credits, then take an exam in March which provides 12 credits, the total credits will be 18, and take care of things for the current season and the next. You can always check your credits by looking at your profile at thesnowpros.org.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

  • Full refund less $30 admin fee for cancellation 10 business days from event
  • No refund for cancellation less than 10 business days from event
  • No show, no refunds
  • A complimentary event transfer (requested 7 days before original registered event) can be performed one time, after that, there is a $30 admin fee for each event transfer
  • Our admin fees are non-refundable

Request for Non-PSIA-AASI Credit

To receive credit for a non-PSIA-AASI event, we require a request for approval of the event in advance. The request must provide us with details of what the event will entail and its duration. Complete the downloadable form below and e-mail to info@psia-nw.org.

Request Form

The “Outside” credit policy allows members to count certain non-PSIA-AASI functions towards continuing educational credit, contingent upon pre-approval, and a $35.00 administration fee. It is important to remember this request can only be used once every three seasons. The purpose of this policy is to allow members who wish to broaden their base of experience to do so, while at the same time meet their continuing education requirements. Please note, requests need to be completed for participation or attendance of outside events occurring in the current season.

We appreciate your feedback on events to help us continue to create and improve programs and experiences for you.

  • Level 3 for a minimum of two seasons (last season and this season minimum)
  • Your teaching skills are at or above a Level 3, 100% of the time
  • Your sliding skills are at or above a Level 3, 100% of the time
  • Your technical knowledge is at or above a Level 3
  • You are able to work mid-week
  • You are a team player and know the organization only grows when we are together, not siloed out in disciplines
  • You are an ambassador for the organization
  • You are looking at being a DCL to continue your development in your technical, teaching and sliding skills
  • You read and reply to emails and texts from the organization promptly (aka within hours not days)

Plan to come ready to show us what you know. The above bulleted items are things to keep in mind as you look toward the date, it is still a tryout.


Technical Knowledge

Questions for you to answer will be sent out ahead to better understand your technical knowledge. The answers will be reviewed and will be a part of the tryout.


Independent Contractor

All DCLs are independent contractors and if successful in the tryout, you will need to gain a Washington State (this is because PSIA-AASI NW does business out of Washington State) UBI number. You can read more about it here.


Ticket Support

Mission Ridge is supporting this tryout by providing lift tickets for those who do not have a season pass at the resort.
