This is the classic Gap Course. A fantastic opportunity to spend the best part of a season in the world's finest ski resort, broaden your horizons and of course receive the best ski tuition on your way to a internationally-recognized qualification.
The course kicks off with an intensive personal performance course
given by BASI Trainers covering all areas of skiing or snowboarding - high-speed,
off-piste, bumps, steep slopes, racing, snowpark and freeride,
mountain safety and off-piste awareness.
This is followed by a Level 1 Instructor Course, six weeks of full-time on-going training and shadowing of ski instructors in the workplace, and culminates in the two week Level 2 Instructor course.
At the end of this period, if students
have reached the required standard, they achieve the Level 2 Ski Instructor Qualification with is the second level on the BASI instructor pathway.
We can cater for a large range of abilities since there are many groups on the course. Because of this, if you are already a good skier your level will be pushed with other good skiers around you. Our trainers train and assess to the highest levels in BASI so there is no ceiling to your improvement. Similarly if you are an inexperienced skier or rider you will be in a group with similar abilities so your needs will be met in this respect too. People have attended the course with as little as 1-2 weeks experience and have still achieved the level through hard work and commitment to the programme. An average experience across the courses of this type is roughly 8-10 weeks.
It is vital that you are properly insured against injury, loss of personal effects and curtailment. Students will need to purchase an insurance policy, details of various suppliers will be posted when you receive your booking form.
