VERBIER

 

LEGENDARY RESORT: AMAZING EXPERIENCE

VERBIER, SWITZERLAND

Verbier has a huge reputation and is one of the most famous resorts in the world, with terrain that more than backs up its reputation.

We’ve run a BASI Gap course in Verbier for years and now it’s the home town of the Peak Leaders team – because it’s one of those resorts that’s so good you can’t really think of a reason to leave…

So we like to think we really are the Verbier experts – we all live here (and have done for years), we’ve worked here teaching skiing and, of course, we’ve run the ski instructor training here for years. We know the resort inside out, not just the skiing (and the après ski).

Which means if you have any questions we can always help, from planning your trip to looking for work to getting boots adjusted when you’re here, and anything else you need help with.

The course is run in partnership with Element Ski School and it’s one of our most popular resorts – but not just because of the amazing terrain, great nightlife and stunning views.

In Verbier we have also developed a fantastic relationship with Les Elfes who offer our trainees jobs (subject to interview) when you complete your Peak Leaders course.

That means as soon as you finish training you can start teaching.

PERFECT ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS:

We’ve made a real commitment to providing the best GAP course accommodation in resort.

So you’ll always get great quality accommodation and also get the added extras that are pretty rare on GAP courses – like access to the sauna or a pool (essential for relaxing after a hard day on the hill…).

We also offer a range of extended accommodation options – so you can stay a few weeks extra or right through until the end of the season. Just get in touch for more information.

WHAT’S A SEASON IN VERBIER LIKE?

A season in Verbier is a guaranteed to be one to remember, and we have to admit we’re prejudiced – we think it might just be the best resort in the world. It has some of the very best freeride terrain in Europe, that’s why the Freeride World Tour final is in Verbier on the mighty Bec des Roses.

It’s also famous as being an amazing resort for apres ski and the massive variety of visitors – from celebrities to royals, to ski photographers and pro skiers. Verbier attracts everyone.

All of your training is run by Element Ski School, and is delivered by BASI Level 4 ISTD Instructors and BASI Trainers – who know exactly what you need to pass the exams and take your skiing to the next level.

On the course you will be on the hill for around of 30 hours per week and get a huge range of coaching – performance coaching on the pistes to learning about off-piste safety, from race training in the gates to days in the backcountry with a guide, from coaching on the hill to video feedback off snow – not forgetting the freestyle training and of course the weekly fitness sessions with Jake.

We are also able to offer work after the course as well as the option to extend your stay in the hotel if you get a job or just want to stay for the whole winter.

We work closely with Les Elfes International so you can qualify then teach straight away (subject to an interview).

What’s involved?

Well, we’ve crafted this course so you get the best of both worlds – train and teach in Verbier, with plenty of time to experience Verbier’s amazing terrain, legendary atmosphere and spend your season in one of the most famous resorts in the world.
