Hi, snowrider

As I know, you are an accredited and experienced PSIA instructor. I would like to understand more about the PSIA techniques so as to know how to enjoy the video and techniques. Would you please give me some hints based on the above video?
Hi PSBoy, thanks for the compliment. I am still working on my level-2 exam prep. From the vedio clip, I think that it's for level-3 standard because it states "variable terrain & conditions ..."

I am in PSIA's East division while the vedio is made by PSIA's Rocky Mountain division. Even though they are two different divisions, they are all under the same PSIA's guidelines. From my division's Alpine exam guide (http://www.psia-e.org/ed/alpine/AlpineExamGuide.pdf), it says that a level-3 skier needs to "...be able to flex and extend the legs at will (independently of where he or she is in the turn) and have the ability to absorb variable terrain (bumps, knolls, turn dynamics, etc.)..."

The keys (I think) are to control the skis "at will" and in "variable terrain[s]". Therefore, you can imagine that a level-3 skier is basically one who has fully integrate his/her skis into body (or feet) and can do almost any turn without thinking.
