Welcome to PSIA-AASI Rocky Mountain!

Most instructors are interested in joining PSIA-AASI Rocky Mountain because they are seeking certification.  They have approached a Snowsports school and found that the school pays more for certified instructors than for non-certified instructors.

Certification is about more than earning more money! It is a confirmation of ability and an opportunity to improve knowledge necessary to share your passion for Snowsports with your guests. The certification pathway involves studying and understanding educational materials that have been developed by industry professionals.  These materials reflect an agreed-upon belief system of what constitutes good skiing and riding skills and good teaching techniques. They are not the only ways to teach and to ski or ride but they represent systems and mechanics that are well proven to be fundamental and effective. It is our hope that in pursuing PSIA-AASI certification, you will enhance and add to the effective knowledge, skills and strengths you already possess, as opposed to replacing one belief system with another.
