The Irish Association of Snowsports Instructors Limited is a Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG) registered in Ireland, registration number 337593. The Association was formed in 1988 and became a Limited Company in 2001.
It is a member’s association whose purpose is to educate and certify snowsports instructors. It’s philosophy of Learn it, Love it, Live it underpins the aim of the association which is run by a board of directors, elected by the members and supported by non-board members, appointed by the board, who look after administration and membership. The board and administrators work for the association on a volunteer basis.
The Irish Association of Snowsports Instructors (IASI) aims to deliver a modern and dynamic educational pathway for aspiring instructors as well as already qualified instructors. IASI’s strategy has been to act as a hub for our members pooling the best from the global instructional snowsports scene through building positive communication and relationships. Through this ongoing strategy IASI are able to continually shape our philosophies and technical and teaching models adapting to the needs of the snowsport instructional world and future snowsports.
This forward thinking approach has lead to considerable growth in IASI membership especially since the last Interski congress in Ushuaia 2015 where the Irish Interski team gathered, collated and reported much information and presented to the IASI membership and further afield via social media, video blogs and presentations. This approach to information sharing and communication continues to form the main pillar in the IASI growth strategy going forwards as we look towards Interski congress 2023 in Levi.
