Harb Skier Alignment System - Footbed and Alignment Technician Training
Dumont and Arapahoe Basin, Colorado
Through this course, you'll gain an unrivaled understanding of how skiers are capable of moving, based on their anatomy, and how you can optimize their abilities through footbeds, alignment, and equipment tailoring. To be a really effective instructor or coach, this training is essential. If your goal is to become an alignment technician, this course will prepare you with both theoretical and practical training. Previous course attendees are now working as alignment specialists, and there is good demand for the services of skilled instructor/alignment technicians.
The course includes:
* how the foot and ankle work in skiing
* influence of equipment (footbed, boots, skis, bindings) on skiing performance
* fore/aft balance
* performing the indoor footbed and alignment assessment - understanding and practical
* making footbeds - theory and practical (lots of practice)
* determining alignment from on-snow maneuvers and skiing
* installing alignment plates & routering boots
* information on obtaining the supplies and tools necessary for footbeds and alignment
We accommodate a maximum of six people per session to ensure that you have plenty of "hands-on" time.
If conditions permit, we will go on-snow for part of the course. Otherwise, we use plenty of video to watch alignment in skiing.
