Alpine – Past, Present, Future – The NZSIA adapts to the future of snowsports

Join us for an indoor lecture to discover the changes we are making to our instructor training to better prepare new and existing ski instructors in the ever changing and evolving snowsports environment.

Our highly adaptable model retains the strengths of our legacy, milestone-based progression that now integrates E- learning and modern learning theory. We will reflect on the aspects that were successful and those that had less ideal outcomes in the past and review the new model with current and future opportunities and challenges.
