Accreditation Level - Yellow

The Yellow instructor has the ability to teach PMTS Direct Parallel from beginners to parallel skiers on green terrain, and to teach parallel skiing to wedge and wedge christie skiers. The yellow-level instructor understands Student Directed Ski Instruction, the PMTS teaching model, and is learning to apply the SDSI model in teaching.


The Yellow instructor can demonstrate efficient Direct Parallel movements in their lessons, and they can ski uninterrupted parallel turns using the proper order of release, transfer, and engagement on groomed green terrain. They can demonstrate such parallel skiing on groomed blue terrain, but they may not yet be consistent enough to meet the Green-level standards.
