WHY IS SAAS FEE SUCH A GREAT COURSE?
WHY PICK SAAS FEE?
Saas Fee is one of our most popular courses and for good reason: set high up in a dramatic yet beautiful valley in the Swiss Alps, Saas Fee provides the perfect location for a pre-season instructor course. Read on if you want to hear a little bit more about why we think this is the perfect spot for you to train as a ski instructor…
First of all, you will be staying in what is widely regarded as one of the most picturesque towns in the whole of the Swiss Alps. Saas Fee sits at an altitude of 1,800m and is surrounded by some of the highest mountains in Europe, providing some of the most spectacular views you will ever see.
During your afternoons or weekends you could be enjoying the spa/pool at the Wellness Centre, football and tennis courts or a leisurely walk in the forest that surrounds the town.
While in the evening you can let your hair down in one of the après ski bars such as the infamous ‘Popcorn’!
This course is not just 10 weeks of skiing, it is a 10 week experience in an awesome town with a group of other like-minded people all there to have a great time!
GET READY FOR WINTER:
The best thing about a course in Saas Fee has to be the timing of the course, beginning mid September and finishing in late November, it gives you the opportunity to be a fully fledged instructor before the winter season even begins! So with our numerous contacts around the world we can help you find a job and get some experience under your belt.
You might be wondering how its possible to run an instructor course at that time of year, before the winter has even started. Well don’t worry because Saas Fee is home to one of the best glaciers for skiing in the world. Boasting a huge variety of terrain, the glacier provides you with the perfect training ground to perfect your skills. You might also be thinking that a glacier just sounds like it will be super icy, however due to the high altitude and northerly aspect of the ski area, you will be enjoying absolutely perfect, grippy snow every day!
The quality of the conditions in Saas are so well respected that during the Autumn some of the world’s best racers will be up there training for the upcoming season. So you will have the chance to rub shoulders with some of the world’s best, perhaps literally if you are lucky enough to share a t-bar with one of them!
Then at the end of a tiring day on the hill you will be able to get sit back and relax in the cosy Park hotel. Situated right in the middle of town and boasting fantastic rooms and top quality food the hotel is the perfect place for you to unwind and relax.
All in all, Saas Fee is an amazing location for you to take your first steps towards life as a ski instructor and as with all Peak Leaders courses, you will be receiving top quality coaching on the hill to help maximise your potential and get you ripping around the pistes in preparation for your instructor exams.
