Background

Nearly five decades ago -- April 18-28, 1968 -- an alpine ski delegation from PSIA represented you and the U.S. at the world’s largest gathering of ski instructors: Interski 1968 in Aspen, Colorado. This marked the eighth International Ski Instructors Congress, and the 24 men and women of the PSIA Team presented the best of what a distinctly American approach to teaching had to offer -- while gaining perspective on other instruction methods from across the globe.

That spirit of international sharing lives on, so save the date for Interski 2019, which will be held March 16-23, 2019, in Pamporovo, Bulgaria!
