About us



As well as being a generally friendly bunch, our Peak Leaders team is a group of experts who know what it’s like to make the mountains home – and what it’s like to do snowsports exams, because we are all qualified snow sports instructors.

We think that the combination of years of experience running training courses combined with years of experience teaching skiing means we can not only make sure you have the best possible time on your course, but also have the best advice and support when it comes to getting a job in this brilliant industry.

But here’s a bit about who we are, and if you have any questions about our courses just get in touch.


Emma is a BASI Trainer and BASI Level 4, based in the Swiss resort of Verbier. She’s in charge of operations and coaching for Peak Leaders.


Guy is BASI Level 3 ISIA, also based in the Swiss resort of Verbier. He’s in charge of operations and marketing for Peak Leaders.


Jake is BASI Level 4 and coaches trainees in Verbier and Saas Fee for Peak Leaders. He’s based in Verbier too.


Steve has been our course mentor in Saas Fee and Argentina, and when he’s not working for Peak Leaders he’s busy running ski and snowboard school in Japan.



We’ve been running ski instructor training courses at Peak Leaders for nearly twenty years – so we’ve got plenty of experience.

And in all that time we’ve always known the priority on any course is making sure that you have an amazing experience.

You need to have the best possible time and ski away with the best possible memories of an incredible adventure in the mountains. So we are committed to making sure that what every Peak Leaders trainee experiences just that.

So if you’re off to a new, unknown country we know you want people on the ground who know the place inside out. And that’s exactly what you get with any Peak Leaders course.

In fact that’s why we’ve created a team at Peak Leaders with tons of experience – not just in running instructor training courses, but experience of the resorts and the industry and plenty more besides. We have also developed a lot of contacts all over the skiing world along the way. So that means wherever you go on your course, and wherever you go afterwards, we can give you the best possible advice, help and opportunities.

So if you want to have chat about anything, just get in touch.
