The American Teaching System (ATS) is a curriculum developed and promoted by the Professional Ski Instructors of America (PSIA) . The curriculum began with immigrating Swiss, Austrian, and French instructors in the 1930s and has been evolving ever since. The ATS β€œCenterline” method blends turning, edging, and pressuring skills to build competent, versatile skiers . Most certified instructors in the U.S. have passed exams in the ATS . The ATS has as many as 10 class levels, which are consistent nationwide. If you take a Level 6 lesson in Stowe, Vt., the following week you can request a Level 7 at Steamboat, Colo., and pick up exactly where you left off

The American Teaching System for snowboard is called the Snowboard Teaching System (STS). The STS includes teaching, riding, and service concepts. STS is student centered meaning we are there teaching for the student, and we must focus on the students goals.

Each part of STS builds upon the others and when used together forms a learning pathway focused for each individual student.

* Teaching concepts are how we explain how we present and explain information to students. * Riding concepts let us understand how we move on a snowboard and how it performs from those movements. * Service concepts help us put together an effective lesson making the students feel comfortable, keep them calm, and to get them to participate in more lessons.

Is the respiortaory system used for downhill skiing?

Yes, you do. You use your respiratory system all the time, after all, we do need to breathe. Specifically in skiing, you use it because it does require more effort than you would first assume to ski properly, therefore increasing your rate of respiration. Also, skiing generally takes place at high altitudes, meaning there is less oxygen in the air so you have breathe more and your respiratory system has to work harder.
