BASI Alpine Level Videos
BASI have created the level videos as a resource for members. These videos represent the kind of skiing you will be training for on a BASI course and have been made to link with the content and the criteria of our courses. We hope you enjoy them. For more details please read below.
Terrain and Tasks
The videos show trainers skiing each of the strands on terrain appropriate for assessment at that level. The task within each clip is not specified, but it can be assumed that the skier is performing the task that was set. The task in each clip is appropriate as an assessment activity for that level and represents a standard or common task for that strand. The clips do not represent every task that is possible within each strand nor can they reflect the different conditions in which our courses are run.
Each of the video clips is set on appropriate terrain and the task being skied is appropriate for that level. This means that each of the clips could be assessed against the Technical Criteria for that level. Each of the clips would represent a pass at that level, according to the criteria. This does not mean that the clips represent perfect skiing, but they do represent a strong performance at or above that level.
NB. BASI don’t use video footage for assessment on courses, we use video as a training aid for development.
Using these videos
These videos are not a template for skiing the BASI way. BASI’s technical approach is more flexible than that. The skiers in these videos are different shapes and sizes and have slightly different skill sets. The equipment they are using changes. These clips give you an idea of the type of terrain and the tasks that will be used for training and assessment on BASI courses and should be used to guide your practise and training for that level.
The trainers within the videos are all L4 instructors, but use slightly differently inputs from each other in order to achieve effective outcomes. Use the technical PIAs for reference and see how the inputs and outcomes are linked in each performance.
