No state regulated coaching system rises to meet this need. Such systems exist either
for elite racing (Darwinian Natural Selection) or mass market mediocrity. They directly
inhibit self-realisation and generate various degrees of confusion, frustration,
fear and injury instead. Most skiers experience some of those undesirable outcomes
but seldom correctly identify the cause, normally blaming themselves. People start
to believe that they have limitations or that they are at fault in not understanding
the coaching. Very few people question authority and the validity of the information
they receive at the hands of “experts”.
Individually tailored coaching for all levels. Different levels can be mixed when
people want to remain together. Personal coaching brings best results due to exclusive
coaching focus and feedback. Contact directly for rates and availability. (Contact

There are performance clinics for every level from complete beginner to pro. The
options are clearly laid out in the Courses page. All skiers work on the same underlying
principles but at an appropriate level of challenge to stretch their skill and awareness
Teaching is a natural part of a skier’s development. Many people want to be able
to teach for such genuine reasons. For this to work well teaching must be done in
a manner that permits the coach to develop as well as the student. The ISC (Independent
Ski Coach) certification program has been established to fulfil this requirement.
ISC prepares people to be able to teach Intelligent Ski Coaching principles - from
first time instructors up to fully certified national ski teachers. Full details
are given in the Courses page.
All of the Intelligent Ski Coaching material is contained in clearly defined modules.
The Meta-Coaching-Modules are outlined in the Modules page.
The SkiTools CDRom is a basic multimedia resource for understanding the key issues
of Intelligent Ski Coaching and why this is fundamentally different from any other
coaching. The CD is sold at a price designed just to cover costs - it runs on all
versions of Windows but was designed for the old 4:3 screen dimensions. Skitools
CDRom is available from the CDRom page.
The skiinstruction.blogspot.com blog is a direct client feedback resource and an
ongoing account of technique and teaching development.
The MadeInMountians.com website is a resource where course video and photos are accessed.
This is also where valuable articles and explanations will be available. Course prices
and other regularly updated material will also be hosted here.
