WHAT’S A SEASON IN VERBIER LIKE?
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 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.
