Attention All Directors, TDs, and DCLs,
Pipe & Park riding has obviously become a very big part of the resort, skiing, and riding experience. The tremendous interest by the public in P&P riding brings new challenges to our organization as we need to be able to serve our guests and provide learning pathways for those yearning to jump, spin, slide, boost, and jib.
Are you familiar with the Pipe & Park educational material from PSIA National that's now hitting the scene? Do you have familiarity with the Smart Style code, how to introduce your guests to the Terrain Park, and provide them a safe learning environment? Do you know how to assess a rider's movements with respect to riding jumps, rails, and pipes and helping them achieve desired outcomes and meet their goals? Do you need coaching on your own jib skills and developing a safe progression for your own skill development?
The PSIA-NW Intro to Pipe & Park clinic will be hosted at Stevens Pass on Jan 21-22 and these are some of the topics and training that will be covered. Snowboard and Alpine specific groups will be formed (Alpine will be limited to 2 groups – don’t be left out). All skill abilities and certification levels are invited.
Please tell your peers and staff members about this opportunity. I've been hearing for a couple of years the interest in P&P curriculum and training - well it's here so walk the talk and come to this 2 day event where you can gain and share plenty of jib knowledge to take back to your school and guests.
Please call the PSIA-NW office at (206) 244-8541 for more information.
