Our goal with this program is to continue to support key partners, the resorts and schools throughout the Eastern Division. When you join or renew your partnership investment this year, you’ll gain access to more education and training tools than ever before – all geared to help you recruit, retain, and train snowsports instructors who will be able to deliver that great guest experience to the folks who visit your area.

You now have THREE options and tier levels of membership to choose from; all are content and benefit-rich and designed to help you fulfill your potential and maximize your partnership with PSIA and AASI.

Check out the options below, make the choice that best fits your needs and budget and sign up today – some of the benefits are schedule-sensitive so the sooner you respond the better chance we have to lock down your training requests!

National-Eastern School Tier 1

Cost: $150 Adaptive schools only: $100 (same as 2018-19)

Benefits to include:

The following programs enable you to earn points this season for redemption in 2020-21 to subsidize your staff’s attendance at Level II prep clinics, CS1 assessments and Level II exams next season:

  • “50 for 50” Education Dollars Reward Program for Hosting Events: For every 50 lift tickets we use from your school and resort for Eastern events, we will reward you with $50 in “education bucks” that you can redeem in the following season for distribution to members of your school staff. This will help in subsidizing their Snowsports education development via attendance at Level II preps, pre-reqs and exams. Other event types need approval from Eastern Director of Education.
  • “5 for 50” Education Dollars Reward Program for supporting First Chair: An Intro to PSIA-AASI: If your school does not host a scheduled event, you can still earn rewards. For every 5 Snowsports staff members you send to the two-day First Chair: An Introduction to PSIA-AASI event you will receive $50 in education bucks for redemption the following season for Level II preps, pre-reqs and exams. This carries over from season to season as well.  Other event types need approval from Eastern Director of Education.
