Finally got a chance to listen to the episode of First Chair that George and I did live from Pamporovo, Bulgaria and Interski 2019. Check it out!
AASI Snowboard Team member Chris Rogers, shares what it was like to get ready for the opening ceremonies including the first day demo run. Learn how the AASI Team members partnered with Burton to give two local Bulgarian schools a Burton PE Riglet presentation and built a riglet park at the top of the mountain.
Now that you’ve made it through the holiday rush and the busiest instruction season, use your downtime to refocus. AASI Team member, Chris Rogers, talks about how to enjoy the calm after the storm to refocus on your education goals and take some time for you to train.
AASI Snowboard Team member, Chris Rogers, talks about the Learning Connection, which is an important developmental framework that focuses on each person’s teaching skills, technical skills, and people skills. A great instructor is one who is highly skilled in each of those areas. Chris talks about how you can use the three different tenants based on the conditions of the day to tailor your student’s experience.
On a recent First Chair podcast, George brought up my teammate Jonathan Ballou’s podcast on taking your skiing from good to great (my answer? start snowboarding!), but it led to this discussion around how you can plan to take your riding from good to great and get to that next level – as well as a discussion of why we evaluate certain things during the riding portion of the exam. Learn why being a beginner again at a sport this summer, or trying some cross training on a board sport, can help you accomplish your winter riding goals.
AASI Team members Amy Gan, Tony Marci and Chris Rogers report on what’s happening at Rider Rally, which kicked off May 7 at Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin and continues through Friday, May 11.
