LEGENDARY RESORT: AMAZING EXPERIENCE
Verbier has a reputation as one of the most famous resorts in the world, with terrain that more than backs up that reputation.
It’s also the home town of Peak Leaders 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 know the resort inside out, not just the skiing (and the après ski).
So 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.
We’ve run a course in Verbier for years 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.
AMAZING ACCOMMODATION OPTIONS
Finally we have made a real commitment to providing the best GAP course accommodation in resort.
So you will always just be a stone’s throw from the middle of town and from the lifts. You also get the added extras that are pretty rare on GAP courses – like a 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.

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