BECOME A SKI INSTRUCTOR THIS JANUARY
2021 HERE WE COME:
BECOME A SKI INSTRUCTOR IN VERBIER THIS SEASON
We know that 2020 has been a very weird, crazy and stressful year.
So we think the best way to celebrate 2021 is to come to Verbier and become a ski instructor.
Of course we would say that. But of you want to get away from it all and have an amazing time, we can’t think of a better place.
Here are three reasons why…
1: AN EPIC TEAM
When you train as a ski instructor you want the best coaches so you can get the best results.
So we make sure you get an expert team who aren’t just brilliant skiers they’re brilliant communicators too. Coaches who can make the complex things sound simple and get the best possible performance from every trainee.
So that means when you train for your exams you get BASI Level 4 coaches. You even get BASI examiners too – these guys know the exam criteria down to the tiniest detail.
And when you get off-piste coaching you get a top qualified Swiss Brevet Federal – someone who knows the resort like the back of their hand.
Then, off the hill, you have mentors who know resort and the industry inside out, so you get the best possible support from start to finish.
2: AMAZING ACCOMMODATION
We know that if you spend your day putting your heart and soul into skiing, you need somewhere comfy and welcoming to come home to.
Which is why we have our Verbier accommodation in the Mont Gele.
It couldn’t be more central – you can literally throw snowballs at the gondolas leaving the Medran lift station. But please don’t.
But just being next door to the lifts (and meaning you can literally ski down to start training) isn’t the most important bit. You need somewhere that feels like home.
And Isla and her team are definitely the people to make you feel like you can settle in and relax. Probably with a well earned beer in the Mont Gele bar.
Cosy, central, friendly and they even have Moe the terrier to keep you entertained. Perfect.
Want more options?
Well, if you want to then you can get all the brilliant training and have an amazing experience but cater for yourself and keep control of the costs.
So you can stay in your own accommodation or just opt to bolt-on the extra self-catered accommodation in chalet Nessie.
It’s a lovely apartment in Le Chable (the town below Verbier on the bubble), so you’re a few minutes from the lifts straight up to Verbier and the ski area, plus you have the bars and restaurants round the corner.
But you live in Chable and save quite a lot of money on your living costs. And Le Chable is like a more chilled-out version of Verbier, which is why most of our coaches live there.
3: GREAT TRAINING OPTIONS
We know that trainees booking on a ski instructor training programme will often want this to be the platform for a whole new career.
Some want to go all the way and pass the Level 4. And that’s great.
So our coaches are equipped to set you on course to take the Level 1 and 2 then go beyond.
We also know some people want different options.
Passing the BASI Level 1 is a great achievement. But some people see the training as just a great way to improve their skiing and have an amazing time in the mountains.
So once you’ve taken the Level 1 you can keep training for the Level 2, or you can take the Performance and Off-Piste option and ski Verbier’s epic off-piste with one of our expert off-piste coaches.
You’ll also be able to develop your skiing and keep working on technique without the pressure of exam criteria.
Plus you get even more chance to learn about the off-piste environment and hone your off-piste skills.
AND IF THAT’S NOT ENOUGH…
OK. If you want more we have to point out that Verbier is probably one of the best ski resorts in the world.
Quite simply it’s a fantastic place to live and ski.
But if all the details above aren’t enough to make you want to come to Verbier this January, then why not give us a call and we can tell you even more…
