skill group signs

How does your ski & ride school sort students when forming classes? 


Typically the kind of turns being made is at the heart of lessons. Well, that, and immeasurable fun, too!


Smartful Skill Group signs identify the focus of each class quickly and clearly. “Never Evers” are easy to sort out, but after that, each ski & ride school has its own criteria for advancement. What are yours?

Rectangular rigid .04 aluminum signs are perfect alternatives to the larger teardrop flags.

18" x 36" ($95 each). Other sizes available upon request.


9-foot teardrop flags ($400 each) are easily spotted and understood from a distance. Printed both sides.

Custom options are always available.

Sorting things out

Getting classes quickly and accurately sorted out is a vital part of improving beginner conversion statistics, let alone a sanity saver for instructors and supervisors, alike. 

As a fellow PSIA-AASI nerd, staff trainer, and award-winning visual communicator (that's fancy speak for illustrator/designer) I would love to help your school figure out how to most effectively tame the sorting beast.

Only Hogwarts has a magical hat to do that.

Nathan's SNOWts

Share Nathan's SNOWts with friends and guests who would like to have a reminder of some of the most helpful skills to focus on along the way from first time skier to an advanced ripper.

PAGE 1: Beginner / Intermediate

1. Emotional balance that come from being able to control speed and direction. Downhill is fast. Across the hill is slow.

2. Speed control through turn shape.

PAGE 2: Intermediate / Advanced

3. Steering the legs independent of the upper body (NOTE: Little kiddos cannot do this well, so don't expect it. 

4. Tip then twist at the top of the turn.
