Roger travels the world working as an instructor and trainer for multiple organizations as a member of the Snowboard National Team of the PSIA/AASI (Professional Ski Instructors of America & American Association of Snowboard Instructors).  These are the world’s largest organization dedicated to teaching people to ski and snowboard.

In addition, Rogers also works as an Examiner in the organization’s Rocky Mountain chapter, which means he certifies other snowboard instructors.

He even talks about how a single Honey Stinger waffle has saved the day for him on many occasions.
