Who’s training you on our Verbier ski instructor course?

We know passing the exams on your Verbier ski instructor course is (along with a little partying?) your number one goal. That’s why we take the time to handpick the best partners to deliver our on-snow training. We’re proud to be working with them, so we thought it might be nice to introduce them to you … first up is our coaching team who deliver our Verbier ski instructor course training in … you guessed it … Verbier, Switzerland.

Peak Leaders: Tell anyone considering booking on the Verbier ski instructor course a little bit about Element Ski School …

Element: “The ski school started for a very simple reason – after teaching for years together in Verbier, we (that is Emma and Guy) realised we had the same idea: work in a small team of friends, have fun, and of course wear the same jackets. We started in the same season in Verbier (over a decade ago now?! wow, where did that go?) and have been friends since – it seemed the natural next step to start Element and share our love of skiing and the region with our long-term, and new-to-Verbier, skiing clientele.”

Peak Leaders: What makes you different from the other ski schools in Verbier …

Element: “We agreed from the beginning that we only wanted to work with like-minded instructors who we trusted completely. Committed instructors who love the resort of Verbier, and know it like the back of their hands. People like us. The result is a small ski school dedicated to delivering the best possible lessons and only working with excellent coaches. There is no better option for undertaking a ski instructor course in Verbier”

Peak Leaders: How did your partnership with Peak Leaders come about …

Element: “Element is very proud to be working with Peak Leaders to help deliver ski instructor courses. Emma leads the training, along with Jake. Before starting Element, Emma had already been delivering training for Peak Leaders in Verbier, Saas Fee (where she is right now) and Bariloche, Argentina – so she knows exactly what is needed from the day-to-day and week-to-week ski training. She recently qualified as a BASI trainer, which means she now has access to the most up-to-date information on the level of skiing and teaching required to reach the pass mark in the exams – it gives a huge advantage.”

Peak Leaders: Any last words to convince our readers to book on the Verbier ski instructor course before other resorts we offer …

Element: “By booking onto the Peak Leaders Verbier ski instructor course you will be assured of focused, quality coaching from Element. We really can make the difference whilst you train towards your BASI Level 1 and 2 exams. Our training programme (we think!) gives you the best preparation to pass and start your journey in this fantastic career of snowsports.”
