Along with skiing, bicycling, kayaking, drumming and going to the race track, I also enjoy writing. Here are the skiing related books I’ve written.

PSIA Level 2 Study GuideMy Journey to Level 2 Alpine: What Helped Me Pass the PSIA Level 2 Exam

If you’re a ski instructor looking to go for your PSIA Level 2 Certification, then this guide will help you study and hopefully pass the exam. This book explains:

  • How to study for the exam
  • What to study for the written test and for the 3-day exam
  • How to prepare and get yourself ready for the 3-day exam
  • How to put together a good lesson
  • How to choose the right exam location
  • How to get your skiing ready

You also get lots of good notes from actual exams taken along with what feedback from Examiners will look like.

I took the exam twice. The first time, I was close and then I passed it the second time. I’ve also done two Level 2 Prep events and a Level 2 Mock Exam event. I’ve had coaches helping me and I put in a lot of work to pass but I didn’t have a book to help me, so I wrote one.

There is a lot of good info in this book. It came out to be longer than I thought it would be. I’ve included notes that I wrote up after my Level 2 Exam as well as notes from the mock exam. I have notes from another instructor who took and passed the Level 2 as well. I’ve included the exact feedback that I got from Examiners, too. You’ll get a really good feel for what the exam will be like and tons of good info about what you need to do to pass it.

My Beginner Lesson BookMy Beginner Ski Lesson

This book is my general beginning skier lesson all written out. Of course, I do change it up depending on the group or for other reasons but this is the general lesson I teach to people who have never, ever skied before.

I’ll admit, just reading it is nothing compared to doing it and taking a lesson from me but I decided to make this book available for a few reasons.

First, it’s a bonus book I give away with my PSIA Level 1 Study Guide and with my Beginning Skiing books.

Second, I make it available for anyone who has taken a lesson from me and wants to review what they learned in the lesson.
