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

We are seeing things opening back up, follow any policies at the resort, if not sure, ask. Please check our COVID page for any updates due to the virus. If you don’t feel well, let us know and stay home. 

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 transfer of registration to another person)
  • No refund for cancellation less than 10 business days from event (no transfer of registration to another person)
  • No show, no refunds
  • No transfer of event registrations between individuals
  • To transfer an event for yourself, send the request 14 days before original registered event, and as long as there is room, we will complete the transfer. 
  • 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.

Course Description:

Alpine Remote Movement Analysis 101


Remote Movement Analysis 101 – Observation and Evaluation


Build your observation and evaluation skills in this introductory and interactive 4-week course with an experienced PSIA-NW MA facilitator. Each session you will expand your abilities through a guided review of a series of film clips selected to build accuracy in identifying tool snow interactions related to a wide variety of intended outcomes. After gaining basic proficiency in the observation realm, you will learn how to accurately identify cause and effect relationships between body movements and tool snow outcomes. Each session will provide opportunities to hone your terminology and delivery using break-out discussion pods and whole class summaries. Look forward to seeing you there.


Prerequisites:


Attendance for all 4-weeks.


Attendance at a 30 minute tech testing session (if everything is working, the test will just take a few minutes). This is mandatory and provides an opportunity for you to log on and test out your equipment, troubleshoot things with the clinician, and make sure everything is in good working order before the first class.


Make sure you will be able to participate fully by ensuring all of your technology is properly setup. Minimum requirements are:

  • System – Laptop, computer, or large tablet (with stand) that gives you enough screen space to see the videos and each other. A phone will not be enough screen space for this class.
  • Video Camera – Built in or separate. If you don’t have a camera – Logitech is a good brand with some less expensive options on Amazon
  • Microphone – built in computer microphones are terrible for video calls so you will need a headset or nice pair of earbuds with a microphone attached.
  • Internet Speed – The video call software we will be using is Zoom. It has recommendations here. For our class you should have at a minimum of 1.5Mbps/1.5Mbps (up/down).




Additional Event Details:

Test tech session (this it to make sure your camera and mic are working and answer any questions before the session starts) is scheduled for Monday the 2nd of May from 5:30-6pm Pacific. Zoom details will be included in your confirmation email.
