Verbier is considered by many as the freeride capital of the Swiss Alps and the Apres-ski capital of Europe. This beautiful resort not only holds the finals of the Freeride World Tour but is also a well-known destination for mountaineers and ski/snowboard film crews due to it's easily accessable and challenging terrain. Off the hill Verbier has one of the liveliest nightlife's in the Alps and on New Years Eve more than 20,000 people cram into Verbier's town centre to party.
With everything included, our course is the best value course in Verbier. Combine that with a team of ISTD qualified coaches, Swiss Patente holders and this is 'THE' course to get yourself qualified as a BASI ski instructor.
We have achieved the best results in Verbier consistently over the last 5 years!
We use a hand picked team of highly qualified and experienced coaches from European Snowsport Ski School to prepare you for your BASI Level 1 exam, which usually happens in Week 2 of the course. This allows you plenty of time to further develop your skiing/snowboarding skills in time for your Level 2 exam during the final 2 weeks of the course.
Our coaching programme has been carefully developed to give you optimum learning time on the hill. All day every day does not automatically make you a better rider, and getting too tired too quickly can result in more injuries and demotivation. With 4-5 hours per day Monday to Friday, we are absolutely confident this is the best way to improve. In addition to this 20 hours of coaching per week you'll also receive off-snow performance training, video analysis and plenty of feedback for training in your own time. Peak Leaders also include an Avalanche Awareness course, First Aid course and a number of ski tuning clinics.
Our stunning spacious chalet is a 10 minute walk to Place Centrale and a 5 minute bus to the lift station. All of our accommodation normally includes twin or triple rooms, and shared bathrooms. It is always luxurious, comfortable and clean accommodation with delicious food and in-house facilities like washing machines (no expensive laundrettes!) and of course free wi-fi as part of the course. No other instructor training provider in Verbier offers their trainees a 2 course meal cooked by an experienced in-house chef. In fact last years trainees enjoyed the accommodation so much that some stayed on whilst they were working part time for European Snowsport and Les Elfes!
Peak Leaders have a dedicated Group Leader who will meet with you regularly to help you achieve your goals, organise extra events and make sure you're having a fantastic time!
