Ski Instructors Alliance) level of certification such as CSIA level 2 and 3. There is a lot
of skiing involved, as this program will challenge the athlete to carve their skis with

style. The athletes will bring the new carving technique into moguls and will work on
park specific tricks such as riding boxes, rails, spinning and jumps with grabs.
