In a seeming blink of an eye, but actuallly after what was an intensive ten-week course, the first group of skiers all passed their BASI Level 2, and now a whole new group of trainee ski instructors have arrived hoping to tread (ski?) the same successful path.
There’s no rest for the wicked, or the trainees – so the first week saw them plunge straight into to training every day, as well as shadowing actual instructors teaching lessons.
Rest at the weekend? Not for these trainees, the first aid course beckoned. As has been typical for Verbier, the snow returned again to fall thickly as the outdoor part of the course took place. Here the trainees took it in turns to play both victim and rescuers.
