Every week, you can find a new PSIA-AASI Member Spotlight here on the site. It’s a great way to share why you love being a professional ski or snowboard instructor, and to talk about why you got into teaching snowsports.
You can also share why you enjoy being a member of the Professional Ski Instructors of America and American Association of Snowboard Instructors. One of the questions every ‘Spotlightee’ gets to discuss in more detail, is their Favorite Member Benefit. Here are some of the recent answers. Be sure and check the link at the bottom of this page to put yourself in the Spotlight.
Chris Walch, Northern Rocky Mountain Division: The fun and awesome training and the gear deals.
Ray Gilmore, Eastern Division: We have 7 resorts within 20 miles, and our local ski schools work together to cross-train for testing and events. That ability to cross-train and receive free clinics, prep, and coaching before exams is awesome.
Rich Noonan, Intermountain Division: National Academy.
Tripp Wray, Eastern Division: The discounts I receive, so that I can afford to continue the sport that I love without breaking the bank.
Matt Holter, Rocky Mountain Division: The opportunity to learn new skills that transfer beyond the resort.
Tina Buckley, Eastern Division: Clinicing with the best, which helps me ski better, which makes my days on snow longer and more effortless and also supplies me with a ton of ideas for my own teaching.
Christopher Weiss, Eastern Division: I appreciate the equipment, clothing, and accessory discounts as well as any professional courtesy that ski areas extend PSIA-AASI members.
