Swiss Alp Scenery

Of the 'Alps' around the world, the Swiss Alps seems to be that little bit higher, that little bit more dramatic and that little bit more beautiful that anywhere else in the world.

State of the art lift systems

Rich skiing history

The first recorded ski holiday happened in St. Moritz in 1864. Since then the sport has been popularised and taken off in other resorts, places and countries.

Reliable snow

Saas-Fee is one of two resorts worldwide that operates year-round with glacier skiing. Because of the height of the Alps, there is never going to be a season where interns are left waiting for the snow to arrive right up until Christmas - it just can't happen!

How to become a ski instructor in Switzerland 

Known for its fondue, apres ski and the famous Swiss Alps, Switzerland is a must-see, must-ski destination! For over 10 years EA Ski & Snowboard have partnered with resorts in Switzerland from the likes of Verbier with the well-known Matterhorn, and St Moritz, home to many great alpine skiing race events every year and an important location to the race circuit. Europe itself is known for having huge ski areas, some of which cross country borders and expand over multiple towns. This means that skiing in Europe is unlike anywhere else in the world! What makes this skiing destination even more unique is that resorts like Saas-Fee are so high up in the Alps that they stay open all year round! 

Well-travelled people would list some of the most beautiful skiing locations in the world as being - The Canadian Rockies, the views from the top of some of New Zealand's great peaks (a.k.a Lord of the Rings), glade skiing in Japan when the suns out and catching the snowflakes on the trees just right and.... literally ALL OF SWITZERLAND! When thinking of scenery, surely Switzerland comes to mind first! The Swiss Alps are not only high but dramatic and numerous. 

EA has designed its courses to not only showcase the best of Switzerland's scenery but has worked in conjunction with reputable and highly-regarded ski schools in its four locations to create an excellent and extensive ski instructor training program out there. 

Why choose Switzerland?

Nowhere else in the world are you surrounded by so many 4000m peaks. With skiing and riding between 2500-3500m, the views are stunning and the snow is super-reliable. There is also an amazing freeride culture so having some big skis with you here will come in very handy! At the end of the day, the apres-ski vibe is awesome with open-air bars playing great music. Live in a picturesque Swiss village and enjoy Swiss alpine culture at its finest. Switzerland ski resorts are known for their state-of-the-art lift systems, excellent facilities and chilled vibes.
