The Staff consists of dedicated volunteer instructors. Over 70% of our instructors are PSIA certified.  All staff members are specially trained in using innovative teaching techniques. Without the dedication of our volunteer instructors, we could not run this program.  We welcome new recruits.  

 

Interested in Volunteering?

Volunteering for LASP is physically demanding and a major time commitment.  All volunteer instructor applicants must meet the following minimum requirements to be considered for the program. 

 

  • A strong intermediate skier 

  • Available to teach a minimum of 12 days during the season.  

  • Successfully complete our training program 

 

Extensive and continual training is essential to provide the best possible instruction for our students and is required of all of our staff.  A solid foundation in basic alpine skiing and teaching techniques is a prerequisite to volunteering for LASP.   All of our instructors must demonstrate the ability to teach basic alpine skiing before they can progress to learning about the techniques and equipment involved in teaching adaptive skiing. 

 

Training follows the Professional Ski Instructors of America's teaching system and the PSIA Adaptive Instruction combined with criteria from Move United (formerly known as Disabled Sports USA).  Over 70% of our instructors are currently PSIA certified and all of our instructors are required to pursue certification within the first 3 years of becoming a volunteer.  Please mail us at laspski@hotmail.com if you are interested in becoming a volunteer.
