What is a dream to many is a nightmare to most! Ski Instructor Academy talks about powder skiing.
When learning to ski the powder for the first time, don’t be afraid to cheat!
Many experts are keen to sit on their thrones of ice and tell us that using fat boy, full rocker skis in less than 40cm of powder is simply not sportsmanlike. Of course they have the experience and knowhow to ski the pow on match sticks if they wish, but the masses struggle, and often do not understand the problem.
The ski can be turned in three ways; 1. By rotating it against the direction of travel, 2. By leaning the ski onto it’s edge and 3. By pressure. It is this third method of turning the ski that holds all the key when skiing in the deep snow.

I am a 43 year old Lithuanian. When I decided to have a career break, I thought about my passion – skiing. I started skiing in 2001 when I was 29. And I was a self taught skier. The course duration, price, time and job opportunity after completing the course looked very attractive to me. I made a quick decision to go for it and now after completing the course and passing the exams, I am absolutely sure it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Last year our 19 year old son felt he needed a challenge in his life. Was becoming a ski instructor really it?
He wasn’t particularly strong at school, in fact, he was labelled dyslexic, completed extra English lessons and missed out completely on German classes. We got in touch with Ski Instructor Academy and told them about our worries and we were immediately reassured… looking back now, I feel “what worries!?”
