About us

ABOUT OUR TEAM

 

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. We’re all qualified instructors and we have worked in resorts all over the world.

And this is who we are…

IT’S ALL ABOUT EXPERIENCE…

 

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.
