We offer a range of different Ski instructor course options from 4 to 11 weeks to suit your timeframe, training and winter season goals. Our 4 - week ski instructor course prioritizes skill improvement and the level 1 ski instructor qualification. Participants find themselves improving their skiing over 3 weeks of intensive practical training and then 1 week of an examination. The longer Ski instructor course includes more weeks on snow and as a result, more time and instruction for improvement. There are also further qualifications included such as first-aid, avalanche safety and also the level 2 ski instructors qualification.
Why choose an instructor training course?
A ski training course includes a full-season pass and also season long accommodation. Alongside this, participants are given the tools and experience needed to become a qualified ski instructor. This program is a perfect fit for people who want to advance their technical skiing and also gain the skills needed to teach. During the course, participants train four days a week in small groups of 6 - 8 people, receiving personal feedback throughout the course. You will train with other keen skiers around the globe making friends for life. Once you have passed your level 1 exams, you can either upgrade to a longer course and work towards your level 2 certification or enjoy some more freeriding before heading home with your shiny certificate in your hand.
