Mountain Bike: Movements for Better Skiing and Snowboarding
Description: This half-day course brings PSIA-AASI-certified instructors and NSP patrollers together to focus on the identification and transference of skills from sport to sport. We’ll explore the symbiosis between sports, emphasizing terrain management strategies and movements, and the connection to skiing and snowboarding fundamentals. In this course, participants will focus on less-apparent skill exchanges. For instance, visual acuity — in relation to how we read and anticipate terrain and the corresponding movements we might make. This is not an intro to mountain biking course; rather, a course connecting similar movements and concepts between mountain biking, skiing, and snowboarding.
