Snowsports experience project

This online version of the BASS Snowsports Experience Project which can be completed in one go or in stages. You can use the workbook webpage as a reference on your phones and make notes on the hill, but we recommend a printed copy of the workbook we have provided as best practice. If you only fill in part of the questions below, remember where you are up to and submit the form. You will need to fill in your details each time you return to complete the next section as it will not save your last entry.
Please note: This is a spelling safe zone where mistakes will be overlooked, we correct your skiing/ridding, not your gramma.
This is a learning project not a test, so it matters not where or how you gather the information, just that you know it. You must complete the project before acceptance onto the BASI L2 Course. Your BASS Pro-Trainer is there to help guide you and answer any questions.
