Bonjour and welcome to our flagship BASI course in one of the largest ski resorts in the world! Portes du Soleil in France in a word is huge. Twelve ski resorts across France and Switzerland make up this magnificent ski paradise, and at the centre of it all is Morzine - our basecamp in the French Alps.
Our eleven week level 1 and level 2 BASI ski instructor course in France is the crème de la crème of instructor programs. This action packed, fun-filled snow lovers dream is jammed full of excitement with 190 hours of expert ski coaching including 70 hours of ski school experience, BASI Level 1 exam, BASI Level 2 exam, BASI approved first aid course, child protection module, avalanche safety course, HD video analysis, oh! and of course... a few tipples during the incredible après!
Spread across a humongous 580km of pistes (some argue 660km), the Port Du Soleil, consisting of 12 resorts crossing over France and Switzerland, is the largest cross-border ski area in Europe and one of the largest ski areas in the world.
With some of the most recognised resort names in Europe such as Les Gets, Morzine, Avoriaz, Châtel, Morgins, and Champéry, there is terrain suitable for everybody no matter the level or experience. From long beautifully groomed blue and red pistes to the steep black’s to be found on and off the tourist routes, not to mention the Swiss Wall… classed as one of the world’s scariest runs, it is sure to test the nerves and edges of even the bravest of victims... sorry, erm... volunteers!
Accommodation And Meals
For our 11-week ski instructor course in France, we have partnered with the fantastic, family owned, slope side Chalet Hotel Starlight.
All bedrooms have been newly refurbished and are beautifully fitted with new beds, decoration, furnishings and USB charging points. Next to the large glass-walled dining room there’s a TV lounge with comfy sofas, games consoles and UK Freeview TV - the perfect place to cosy down in the evening!
New for the 2019 season they have even created a cinema room with a Digital HD Projector – an ideal space to enjoy a night in with a great movie or to go over course materials and lectures towards your BASI exams.
If you were worried about having to cook for yourself or put up with basic meals, think again!
Included as standard in your course fees is an amazing continental breakfast 7 days per week (buffet style – fresh pastries, cheeses, cured meats, yoghurts, porridge, eggs, fruit, juices, tea/coffee.) Afternoon tea is also included and available (when you are not up on the slopes), as well as a fantastic two course evening meal 5-days per week to ensure you have the energy for the days training head.
As well as all of the above, you will also have access to the hot tub to ensure that you and your muscles can relax in the evening.
SIA has teamed up with BASI(British Association of Snowsports Instructors) and with BASS(British Alpine Ski School) in Morzine to bring this unparalleled course to life. BASS was founded in 1999 and is the original British Ski School, with trainers who are currently part of the BASI Interski Team and the BASI National Education Team... Ski Gods in other words!
On this course you will train towards the Alpine Level 1 & Level 2 ski qualifications of BASI.
In order to work in France, instructors must be qualified to the highest level (BASI Level 4 ISTD) with full French equivalence requirements met. This means that you can be guaranteedthat the training is provided by only the highest qualified instructors that BASI has to offer.
