INSTRUCTOR TRAINING PROGRAM

SKI INSTRUCTOR TRAINING PROGRAM

Ski instructor training program. Ideal for those who want to prepare for the technical part of the level 3 or 4 BASI exams running on the Hintertux Glacier April 2024. This is a great opportunity to become more familiar with the slopes and terrain on the Hintertux Glacier. It will give you some fresh ideas, make you more aware, develop your techniques and help build your confidence in the lead up to the BASI exam week.

GOALS FOR PROGRAM

Inspire – Motivate – Develop – Achieve

On this ski instructor training program I hope to inspire my students on this ski instructor training program. By sharing my enthusiasm and enjoyment of being part of the mountain environment. And by passing on my understanding of skiing; take in what you feel while skiing in different and varied terrain– bumps and challenging varied terrain – conditions

To use feeling and understanding to develop a variety of ways for you to be able to create different turn shapes for short, medium or long turns – using pressure to influence the change of direction to steer or carve as you wish to enhance your performance.

Take away new feelings and understandings to be able to make continued self-development to become a stronger all mountain skier.

To give you the tools so you can work towards achieving success in the technical part of your BASI exams, but more importantly to impart the enjoyment of becoming a more all-round all mountain skier for yourself in the future.

When skiing on the mountain, you can use any situation to your advantage or disadvantage. To use the situation to your advantage, you need to adapt your technique and tactics to your own ability as well as to the conditions and type of snow. This is what makes good and effective skiers, and this is what I want to make you more aware of.

Give the candidates more open understanding of how to use an open mountain environment to ones advantage and play with the terrain.

Optimal alpine position/balance (applies to all 5 strands)

Dynamic balance fore, aft and laterally
State of awareness in ankles – knee – hips to make appropriate movements to influence steering when needed
Arm position in front of body, appropriate for the change of direction of skis
Axis parallel to each other, to creates appropriate separation to allow pressure control on outside ski

Rhythmical round turns appropriate to the conditions and gradient of slope.
Control of speed and active moments.
Legs/skis crossing under the centre of mass rhythmically and freely.

Rhythmical round turns appropriate to the conditions and gradient of slope.
Skis engaging from start to end of turn to control the build up of pressure to influence the turn shape while creating good support and balance against and on the outside turning ski.
Clean change of edges and transition from turn to turn.
Understand how to control speed through the whole turn and using this to your advantage.

Using the all mountain terrain to your advantage and understand how to control speed and using appropriate technical ability.
Understand how one starts and finishes a turn.
Being active throughout the whole turn, adapting to different lines and speeds.

Use ones technical ability and become more confident in variable all mountain conditions.
Change direction where and when one wants to in short and long turn shapes.
Make you more aware of how you can use variable conditions to your advantage.

Using and skiing steeper terrain to your advantage and controlling the pressure to help with rhythm and control.
Understanding and feel how you uses the turn shape and where and when to release the turn, short and long on all mountain terrain.

MY BACKGROUND

I have been in the Ski instructor/coaching industry for a number of years and have been through exams in Europe reaching the top level in Austria, Switzerland and United kingdom. I have also been training FIS / European cup skiers for a number of years and I also hold a ÖSV – (Austrian Ski Association) Trainers Licensed. I understand the discipline and work needed to achieve the toughest goals and the structured training it takes to achieve these goals in the racing world or to pass the high standards of a technical instructor exam.

My success in the world of skiing is largely based on the pursuit of excellence, helping skiers, regardless of their level or standard, develop their technical skills by understanding what they really need as opposed to what they think they want. In particular, this includes understanding your personal goals on this ski instructor training program and individual learning styles and focusing on the outcome/success rather than obstacles/difficulties.

Toby has already twice spent four weeks helping to run an annual alpine skiing exercise for around 120 British Army soldiers. ... He has added real value to so many different elements of our ski training and race training. We enjoyed his company very much and could benefit from his wealth of experience in various areas of the alpine environment. He is a true professional and is so versatile that he has improved the experience of our entire team on the hill.

In the short time that I and my daughter have gotten to know Toby, he continues to show his love for his work, the love and passion he has for skiing and helping others develop .... I feel privileged to have met Toby and I would like to say that I am confident that wherever Toby goes and whatever he does, he will inspire and motivate others.

Great 3 days in Hintertux. Focused on the core issues, clear in message and delivered with humor! I have the feeling that I have improved significantly. As Arnie said, "I'll be back!"
