053-bucky-240x300 (053-bucky-240x300)Deer Valley Resort Director of Skier Services John Guay and other experienced Deer Valley ski professionals will be teaching a “Ski Instructor Training” course at Utah Valley University’s (UVU) Heber campus starting in October.

The course will include six hour-and-a-half classroom sessions at the UVU Heber campus and two full days on the ski slopes at Deer Valley. Guay, who has worked at Deer Valley since its inception in 1981, says,

“The course will include a brief history of the ski industry in general, and specific ski instructor training covering topics from PSIA certification to developmental theory to current philosophies of teaching children’s skiing and more.

We’ll be pulling from our Deer Valley staff of more than 40 experienced ski instructor trainers to assist with the class. Doing this class over a condensed period allows visitors or those with busy work schedules to participate and leave the course with a completion certificate from Deer Valley.”

The “Ski Instructor Training” course costs $349.00 and is scheduled to begin in October. Contact Utah Valley University immediately for enrollment, at 801-863-8012.

I live for winter, from skiing to snowboarding to bobsledding to aprés skiing, it's all good. I live in Utah because it always snows here.
