Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Do you mean the L1 'race coaching' course you need for L3?

I did its predecessor and found it fun. Lots of useful ideas for things to do with groups and kids particularly. Personal skiing needed to be at a solid L2 standard.

Wasn't sure if you meant the one that follows immediately on the same web page. Holding off on that until I am knocking on the door of being at the level. Finding I'm getting plenty to work on from occasional sessions with folk like ICE and Snoworks. I don't get the idea that the L3 performance course would be a re-gentle introduction, but rather, pretty long and quite physical days...

yep the performance course i would say needs the training week first, personally i would just do that to see where the trainer thinks you are at.... this is what i am going to do.... the zermatt would be good but to draw backs for me.... weather can be iffy re wind and getting up mountain, bumps - quite often its a rut line as no bumps to ski i think.....

hence my idea of just doing the coaching as enough skiing to ease my way back in, i quite like skiing gates which am guessing there will be a bit of...... i would say level 3 a big step up bumps wise.... not sure about longs and shorts, maybe just harder as grip higher in the turn and steeper slopes generally to cope with?

yeah, I did Coach in Tux at the end of the season. largely in a whiteout! There was opportunity to work on skiing, largely as part of exploring coaching methods but it's not the focus, and skiing itself is not assessed. we set quite a few courses, mostly stubbies / brushes - only a couple of courses with full gates (don't know if that is representative, weather was crap). So you don't need race helmet / protection.
There was a real mix of candidates from a guy that had just failed his L2 to a girl who was finishing L4. Some had skied gates before, some hadn't. Everyone passed.
For me the best bit was observing and coaching better skiers, I'm hoping thats a useful development activity towards the Teach.

L3 is a big step up in all strands, IMO.
