THIS IS THE IDEAL COURSE IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TEACH THIS WINTER

Our 10-week ski instructor course / snowboard instructor course in Saas Fee course is an ideal option if you want to be teaching by the winter. The pre-season course means that you could be a BASI Level 2 qualified instructor by the end of November. During the course, the group leader can help you with applying for jobs. Past trainees have gone to work at ski and snowboard schools in Europe, Canada and Japan after the Saas Fee course.

Our partnership with Les Elfes International means they will be recruiting directly from the course, plus other ski and snowboard school Directors will be holding interviews too. This course is a great option if getting a ski instructor job or snowboard instructor job after the course is your priority.

The qualifications are with BASI (British Association of Ski Instructors) – check out the video to see what their trainers think of the course.

TOP TEN THINGS TO DO IN SAAS FEE

  • With plenty of history surrounding the village get out and explore the valley – it’s been open to tourists since 1830

  • Try out Saas Fee’s sleek new wellness centre, Aqua – Allalin – the perfect place to chill.

  • After a day on the hill, head to the Popcorn bar for a chilled out beer and check that GoPro footage!

  • Go grab your favourite pizza from Don Ciccio – and take your buddies too

  • Go further – ski/ride the iconic resort of Zermatt, under the watchful eye of the Matterhorn

  • Hold tight – slackline in the local Saas Fee forest

  • Go further still – if you loved the pizza you’ll really love lunch in Cervinia in Italy. And you get to ski/ride Zermatt first

  • Test you palette – and the local Swiss wines – down the valley in Sion

  • Pitch perfect – 5 aside football for any weather

  • Day off the hill? Try some tricks in the Saas Fee skatepark instead

WHAT YOU'LL GET ON YOUR SKI INSTRUCTOR COURSE / SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTOR COURSE

Take a quick tour of the Park Hotel, in the heart of Saas Fee plus job interviews during course

THE PEARL OF THE ALPS

You might wonder what it’s like being in a resort ‘off peak’ season. During the Autumn, teams and individuals are based here ahead of the winter,so you’ll see some of the world’s best skiers training in the gates, and some of the best snowboarders hitting up the park, the ideal location for our both our 10-week autumn ski instructor course and our snowboard instructor course. The height of the village and the mountains, means that you’re guaranteed decent preseason snow; most years we’ve even had powder days. When everyone else is at homemoaning about the clocks going back you could be spending your days in the Alpine sunshine.

Accommodation is in the fabulous Park Hotel just a few minutes stroll from the lifts and centre of the village. Comfortable lounge, bar and terrace for catching the afternoon sun, and an ideal spot for a BBQ. Ensuite twin rooms with balcony’s to chill out on, make the end of the day just right. There are lots of bars and restaurants; and you’ll feel like a local pretty quickly!

Pistes are perfectly groomed, just what you need to hone your technique for the BASI Level 1 & Level 2. And if you like park, you can find world class (read “big kickers”!) and plenty of lines.

And all this before the northern hemisphere winter kicks off.
