IMD News / Divisions asked to delay AO training until Oct. 14
« Last post by gerdt on August 06, 2017, 12:41:38 AM »
The Alpine Officials Education Working Group has asked that divisions not schedule alpine official training sessions until after (or on) the October 14 weekend. With the rebranding to U.S. Ski & Snowboard they are working hard to get everything transferred over for the upcoming season.

When you do finalize a date for your AO training sessions, please e-mail the details to Stephen Schowengerdt,, so he can post an announcement on the website and get training material to you.

IMD News / It is AO certification upgrade time
« Last post by gerdt on April 01, 2017, 08:05:30 PM »
The season is winding down quickly and it is time to start thinking about alpine certification upgrades.

The certification matrix is attached below. I lists exactly what is needed to get from one level to the next as an alpine official.

If you, or someone you know, are on track according to the matrix for an upgrade, let me know

In the e-mail to me make sure to include: Officials name, USSA ID, area they should be updated in (TD, RA, CR, RF, TC or JA) and why they should be upgraded.

Recommendation for national level certifications (Level 3 and 4) will have to be turned in well before the USSA spring meetings in May.
