VERBIER – SELF-CATERED BASI SKI GAP COURSE
GO SELF-CATERED IN VERBIER.
Naturally the course cost is a lot lower, but you will need to arrange a half-season (or season) apartment rental yourself, as well as your catering and cleaning (and don’t forget linen).
But we’re always more than happy to help and advise – we’ve got a lot of contacts in Verbier so if you are thinking about this option we can put you in touch with the agents we know (and trust) in resort.
Sometimes people choose this option if they already know people in resort and want to stay with them, or perhaps if you want to book season-long accommodation because you know ten weeks isn’t long enough – so you can take the course and then get a job for the rest of the winter.
Remember there are options to stay on at the Mont Gele as well as in the Peak Leaders ‘Chalet’, so just get in touch for more details.
But whatever your plans, a season in Verbier is always an amazing experience and you’ll get to enjoy one of the best resorts on the planet and get some of the best ski instructor training out there.
For full details of the course just click below, and in the meantime below is a summary of what’s included on the self-catered option (basically everything except your rent and food).
