History & Geography
The Western Division of Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA-W) and the American Association of Snowboard Instructors (AASI-W), is one of nine divisions that make up the American Snowsports Education Association (ASEA, the national umbrella organizations of PSIA and AASI).
PSIA-W/AASI members range from full and part time instructors to alumni members, who are retired from teaching. Many of our members come from professional backgrounds such as contractors, small business owners, pilots, doctors, lawyers, and teachers. They all bring a passion for snowsports to share with others.
