Train on the terrain the course will run with a BASI Adaptive trainer.
Summit is excited to have two adaptive training weeks this coming season in Zermatt. These courses will be designed and aimed towards the Adaptive level 2 and 3 courses that are running at the end of the season. It is a great chance to train and get some practice in before going for an assessment.
This week is aimed at anyone looking at doing their BASI Adaptive Level 1 or 2. We will recap and introducing the next step techniques and knowledge.
This week is aimed at anyone looking at doing their BASI Adaptive Level 2 or 3. Preparing for exams and finalising improvements from week 1 and continuing your development.
The trainer will be Ash Morton, (BASI adaptive trainer and adaptive director). The disabilities will be discussed mainly on chair lifts and travel time but we will be maximising the on snow time to prefect the technique and teaching elements required for level 2 and 3.
There are six disciplines within the adaptive qualification.
1. Sensory impairment
4. Learning difficulties
5. Three track
6. Four track
Moving into the level three criteria the most challenging parts are the high speed visual impairment guiding, Bi-ski tethering on red/black terrain, mono-skiing on red/black terrain and three tracking on red/black terrain (assessments on both legs). Therefore the majority of the time on snow will be devoted to this.
