VERBIER
ACCOMMODATION AND TRAINING PACKAGES

 

Our Verbier course gives you an amazing combination of top level training and brilliant accommodation in one of the most amazing ski resorts in the world.

The Training is run by a hugely experienced team of BASI Trainers (examiners) and top qualified BASI Level 4 coaches, whilst the accommodation options are hand-picked so that you get the best possible combination of locations and quality.

We also offer the choice of catered or self-catered.

So you can book a place in our catered Peak Leaders accommodation – with dinner and breakfast five days a week and access to saunas, ski rooms and more.

Or you can go self-catered and arrange your accommodation and catering for the season, but still have an amazing Peak Leaders experience.

Crucially whichever option you choose you’ll get the same amazing training package.

WHAT’S THE AVERAGE WEEK LIKE?

 

There’s a huge amount of variety from one week to the next – and, of course, for three weeks of your course you’ll be doing BASI exams.

But here’s a sample week to give you an idea of how the training works, how it’s structured, what you’ll do, what the after skiing activities are and when you get to free-ski…

WHAT’S THE COURSE SCHEDULE?

 

The full Verbier course is ten weeks long, with the BASI Level 1 and BASI Level 2 exams taking up three weeks in total.

In addition to the training weeks and the exam weeks, there is also a week of shadowing – which gives you vital ski schools experience and is required by BASI before you can progress to the Level 2 exam.

It’s also a great opportunity for you to help with lessons, watch experienced instructors in action and probably pinch a few lesson ideas so you’re ready for the teaching part of the Level 2 exam…

THE ACCOMMODATION PACKAGES

 

We have two options in Verbier – you can stay in catered accommodation (in either Chalet Mondzue or Chalet Serge) or you can choose to go self-catered.

Both chalet options give you a brilliant place to live for your course. Both are really nice apartments with access to great facilities as well as ski lockers and laundry facilities. Mondzue is closer to Place Central, whilst Serge is more spacious of the two.

Naturally the self-catered package is cheaper, but of course that means you won’t be looked after by our amazing team at the chalet – or enjoy relaxing in the sauna or the pool after a tough day on the mountain.

However, some people find that the flexibility of going self-catered can be better for them, especially if you already have plans to stay with friends in resort or if you have dietary requirements that mean it’s easier for you to cater for yourself.

But whichever option you decide on, we will make sure you have a course that you will remember for the rest of your life.

CHALET MONDZUE

The Mondzue isn’t really a chalet, but we call it that because it’s run just like a traditional chalet – with a chef, a cleaner and communal areas that make you feel at home.

It’s a large catered apartment just down the road from the lifts, but slightly closer to the centre of town and its nightlife.

The package includes dinner five nights per week, as well as breakfast provided five days per week (including a cooked option once a week).

There are a mix of twin rooms and bunk rooms in the apartment, as well as separate bathroom and shower room.

The apartment couldn’t be better placed, just down from all the main shops, bars and restaurants are, but less than a five minute walk from the main ski lifts.

There is also the option to stay in the Monzue for the whole winter. So if you want to see the season through to the spring then this is the perfect home-from-home. If that’s something that might interest you then get in touch.

 

 

 

CHALET SERGE

As with Mondzeu, whilst Serge isn’t a chalet, it certainly feels like it when you’re inside.

So you’ll have a chef to cook for you, a regular cleaner and use of the huge, brilliantly furnished Appartment.

Serge is just ten minutes from the middle of town on foot, but there’s a bus stop two minutes away with three different bus routes that takes you into town and up to the lifts – as well also home again after skiing.

With five bedrooms Serge has plenty of space and the standard of accommodation is really high. It’s also right next to the Sport Centre – which is brilliant if you fancy heading to the climbing wall or taking advantage of the brand new facilities.

You will also have access to the pool at the Mondzue building.

You’ll have dinner cooked for you by the Peak Leaders chef five nights per week, as well as breakfast provided five mornings per week, with a cooked breakfast once a week, too.

The chalet is very big and has five spacious bedrooms, with a mix of twins and a triple. There are also three shared bathrooms and shower rooms.

Situated ten minutes from the heart of Verbier (with no big hills to climb) Serge is in a great location that’s within a short walk of all the bars and restaurants, but away from the hustle and bustle of the main street.

And if you want to stay in Verbier after the course, you can still book a place in Chalet Mondzue until the end of the season. Just get in touch to find out more.

 

 

 

SELF-CATERED
ADVICE

If you are thinking about going self-catered we can definitely help.

Having lived in resort for fifteen years we know plenty of people and agents that we trust, so we can point you in the right direction.

We can give you advice about which areas of Verbier are best – and which are a little too far from the lifts…

We can also make suggestions about renting in Le Chable which is in the valley below Verbier but connected by the bubble and busses. In fact most instructors seem to live in Le Chable now.

Almost all options would be for the full season, although if you get in touch early we can often help find a solution that’s just for the duration of the course.

So if you’re keen on a self-catered course and want accommodation advice, just get in touch.

 

EXTENDED
ACCOMMODATION
OPTIONS

We realised a long time ago that too many courses ended leaving trainees scrambling for extended accommodation in the final weeks – just when they should have been concentrating on their exams.

To make it more difficult courses always end just before the expensive half term weeks.

So a number of years ago we decided to arrange extended accommodation packages. That meant if you wanted to stay in resort after the course ended we could take out the stress and the hassle.

We make the package as affordable as we can, and whilst you won’t get full catering, you will get a regular cleaner and the peace of mind that comes with the knowledge that your accommodation is sorted – so you can concentrate on getting up there and skiing.

STAYING ON AT THE MONDZUE

The Mondzue is perfectly located and is a brilliant base for the season – even more so if you stay in town and teach for the season.

So once again we are offering extended packages for trainees, either offering a single bed in a shared room, or offering a single occupancy rate.

Sadly you won’t get Laura’s cooking everyday after the course ends, but there will be a weekly cleaner included and you will keep access to all the facilities including the games area, pool and sauna.

All prices are in Swiss Francs.
