EMMA B

Would 100% recommend. Literally had the time of my life in Verbier last year.

Jake, Emma and Guy are amazing and so helpful! If you are considering a ski season and not sure which company to do it with, look no further.

If you love skiing, ever want to have the experience of a winter season and wish you could teach people how to do it, then PEAK Peak Leaders is the best choice.

I’m from Venezuela and I don’t get any snow back home, but skiing is a huge part of my life and always wanted to do it for an entire season. Peak Leaders gave me that chance, helped me obtain my BASI 1 & 2, taught me how to be a better skier and be able to pass on those skills to other people.

It’s a lot of hard work that requieres your dedication and commitment. You will meet people from all over the globe, make new friends, live unforgettable experiences and maybe even find a new passion in life like I did.

Trust me when I say Peak Leaders is a great choice, their trainers are extremely qualified and will strive to make sure you succeed.

I would absolutely recommend this course to any one of my friends!! It is the perfect escape for a gap year or an excuse to get out of the routine of everyday life!

Living in Verbier for 6 months was an absolute dream. Made many mates and memories and the coaching was top notch turned me from a snow plow into an instructor. 😂

But seriously this was one of the best decisions of my life if you are contemplating it then just do it!!!

I did the Peak Leaders course in Verbier for my level 1 and 2 in winter 2018/19. I absolutely loved it!

The coaches are all amazing and really work hard to get the best out of you and to get you to pass your exams!

They’re always happy to give extra help where they can and a motivational pep talk when you need it.. even in the second half of the season when the course had finished.

The whole set up of the course is super smooth.. couldn’t recommend more.. go have fun! You won’t regret it :)

Completed the Verbier course in 2018/19 and it was brilliant.

The coaches really helped me pass my level 1 and 2 and were instrumental in getting me a job. They put on loads of other coaching and events which was amazing. Would recommend to anyone.

The Peak Leaders Gap Course is a fantastic program facilitated by highly qualified and passionate coaches.

As someone completing the course in their mid-20’s, I wasn’t sure what to expect and was happily surprised by the diversity of our group and quality of learning.

Your skiing improves exponentially whilst you enjoy structured and well-communicated classes.

All trainers must be level four qualified and rotate regularly to allow you to experience different approaches and techniques of teaching others to ski.

Off the snow, the coaches provide a strong network of locals to guide you through the village and recommend off-snow activities to enjoy whilst not skiing.

The Peak Leaders team provides a premium service above expectation to ensure you are well looked after and enjoy your time away. Spending a few months or full season should commence with a Gap Course and I would highly recommend Peak Leaders for their structured gap course, quality of coach and level of service.

LEE W
VERBIER TRAINEE

I completed the Peak Leader BASI 2 course in Verbier in 2018 and have nothing but praise.

As a more ‘mature’ gent there was some trepidation about embarking on what is marketed as a gap course and therefore orientated towards the younger crowd.

On top of that, I joined the programme after the end of the BASI 1 phase as a result of previous instructional experience, but was made to feel welcome and part of the group from the start.

Any age related concerns were blown away not least because all of the instructors were focused on one thing: improving you as an individual to be the best skier possible. Being older meant in my case, bad habits which were identified quickly and worked on throughout.

A great, structured, well executed programme which I cannot recommend highly enough.

For those transitioning from a previous career to ski instruction, or for those simply wanting to prove to themselves that they can do it, Peak Leaders is a great platform to put your trust in. Quite happy to be contacted by anyone seeking further feedback on my positive experiences.

Had a great time with the team in Saas Fee! Quality skiing with great instructors! Would highly recommend to join Peak Leaders, to improve your skiing and have a great time. And if you are tired after a long day of skiing, the best dog in the world will be in the hotel to make it all better!

Amazing course!

This course was perfect for me because I wanted to have my BASI 1 and 2 so I could go off teaching in Verbier at the start of the season there.

It is the perfect way to improve your skiing and to nail the exams in ideal piste conditions. Emma is a great skier and trainer and would 100% recommend. Will be some of the best weeks of your life!

RICHARD W
SAAS FEE TRAINEE

This Peak Leaders course in Saas Fee was definitely an experience of a lifetime – the organisation of the entire course was so professional, from the 5 star ski training and varied dryland activities to the excellent accommodation and food together with all the hidden extras which include thorough advice on employment within the industry for the forthcoming winter plus loads more!

It was so well thought through to cater for us all on the course. Made some great friends along the way.

The training was excellent – learnt so much throughout both technically and constantly having the opportunity to improve teaching delivery to well prepare all of us for our exams.

Would recommend to anyone of any age whether it’s a gap year straight after school, career break or career change like myself!

Peak Leaders was one of the best experiences of my life. 9 weeks of great food, skiing every day and full focus on my skiing and improvement.

I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Saas fee was a great environment to learn in, lots of professional park skiers and snowboarders as well as top race teams from around the world were sharing the slopes with us.

I did the pre season course in Saas fee, and enjoyed every moment of it, from the technical coaching to the teach training. It significantly improved my skiing and gave me a good base of knowledge to build on.

They also gave me the opportunity to get a job in one of Switzerland’s top ski resorts where I have been working and improving my skills ever since.

Highly recommend training with peak leaders if you want to improve your skiing and get qualified at the same time.

SAAS FEE TRAINEE

I did my level 1 and level 2, Peak Leaders course a couple of years ago in Saas Fee and it was the best experience I could have done!

The instructors are very hard working, teaching you the RIGHT way to ski! They will always keep you motivated and even when you feel like giving up yourself..they won’t give up on you, always giving you positive and constructive feedback to help you improve and be the best you can be.

A variety of activities are also planned throughout the course, and you meet so many amazing people who have the same interest as you..skiing!

I would highly recommend the Peak Leaders course, especially in Saas Fee as the course finishes just before the season starts, meaning you can go and work as an instructor straight after the course.

The team at Peak Leaders put all their hard work and effort in helping you find the best job. I would definitely do the course again if I could!

I did the Argentina course last year which was amazing. An absolutely stunning place to get absolutely brilliant coaching!

It was my first time in South America and it didn’t disappoint – the food, the coaches, the other people on my course – all of it was wonderful so another thank you to Jake for coaching and organising it all.

I qualified my level 1&2 in Argentina with peak leaders and what an experience it was. The quality of skiing to the help with finding the best job. Peak leaders can help with all.

Ned F
BARILOCHE TRAINEE

Did the Peak Leaders Argentina course in the summer of 2017. The course was amazing – a combination of an introduction to a new culture, 8 weeks of intense and fantastic coaching, and provided me with a great start in the field of ski instructing.

The course helped me to find opportunities in the industry – I ended up in Japan the following season, and found that the course had prepared me perfectly for the life and work of a ski instructor.

Much like the lifestyle of a ski instructor, the course was a perfect balance of working hard doing something you love, while also having the time to relax and enjoy not only skiing but also the multitude of other activities the course had on offer.

Loved the course leaders, coaches, and local expertise – definitely worth doing if you’re looking for a headstart in the world of skiing.

Skiing and traveling have always been at the top of my list of personal priorities. The Bariloche course allowed me to do both!

With the awesome training by Jake and other coaches I was able to pass my Level 1 and Level 2 on the first go.

The course and adventures I had while down there are and will forever be some of my fondest memories and an unforgettable experience.

If anyone is looking for top notch training with a beautiful landscape while also having loads of fun and meeting incredible people, Peak Leaders is the right choice!
