WHAT’S A COURSE IN BARILOCHE LIKE?
A course in Bariloche is one you’ll never forget – the place, the people and the Patagonian mountains all add up to a simply amazing experience.
And our team in Bariloche will be on hand to help with the course, advise on applying for jobs and help organise extra activities like cat skiing. You’ll also enjoy the weekly (and legendary) barbecues down by the lake, gaucho
A big part of the course is living on the shores of the stunning Lake Gutierrez. After a hard days training it’s amazing to come down to the lake and even in winter you can sit out on the terraces that run all the way down to the water.
The ski coaching is 5 days per week during with video analysis for the first four weeks, then in week 5 you start your BASI Level 1 exam with your BASI trainer.
Once you complete the Level 1 the same trainers stay with you to coach you for another week before the BASI Level 2 starts. So you get the continuity of having the same people helping you take your skiing to the next level throughout the exam phase.
As with all of our courses, we aim to give you the best rounded mountain knowledge, so there’s a backcountry/avalanche awareness course and a first aid course.
We don’t just want you to qualify on your ski instructor course, we want you to become a stronger all round skier with better mountain knowledge.
