Instructor Training Clinics
Powderpigs offers three sets of clinics- Kid Tech (also called Dryland), Ski/Board Tech, and On Snow Clinics. All first and second year instructors are strongly encouraged to attend a full series of each clinic. Third year and beyond you are always welcome, and we look forward to seeing you at the Meet & Greet, Risk Safety, and On Snow clinics.
Kid Tech provides an in–depth exploration of children (and adults!) as individuals and as learners. This gives you, the instructor, a solid foundation for being able to teach to each of your students.
Ski/Board Tech provides the technical aspect of teaching skiing and snowboarding.
On Snow Clinics combines everything we learn in Kid Tech & Ski/Board Tech and puts it into play on the mountain. In small group settings we practice teaching different steps in the learning to ski/board process, build our own ski/board skills, get to know the mountain, and build our instructor community.
2018 Clinic Schedule
Each clinic is offered twice so that instructors can pick the dates that work best for their schedule. (Ex: A new instructor may choose one of the Dryland 1 dates, they do not need to attend both Dryland 1 dates.) If you have questions about clinics, please email Jennifer (firstname.lastname@example.org).
