What is the ski instructor course?

Course program

Ski instructor course

The ski instructor course is both fun and educational! Your days will be spent ski training on the piste, learning about techniques while improving your own ability and learning how to explain, demonstrate and give constructive feedback as an instructor. On your return from the mountain you will reinforce what you have learned with theory lessons covering all aspects from organization and safety to movement analysis. Your evenings are typically spent revising the days program and of course you have the opportunity to ask our coaches any questions you may have.

You get so much in return!!

'I look back at my time in Austria during my Anwärter course with nothing but positivity. It was tough at times, however the group was so much fun. We studied together often and the atmosphere was great. The "Ausbilder" were friendly and helped us with the smallest things. Besides that, we were accompanied by Stefan and Pete for personal coaching. They helped out before the course, during and even afterwards!! You could ask them for anything. I have to admit that I was rather nervous at first. I will never regret this though! You get so much in return and I had an awesome time, I almost consider doing it again!'

Participant Tirza van den Hoek

Honestly a great organisation!

Because everything was spot on. Great club, homelike atmosphere. The hotel was superb, neat rooms and of course a jacuzzi & sauna! You could ask all your questions about the theory to the Snowsports coaches. Every other day they discussed the theory classes with us and we were given a mock exam to prepare for the exam. We even had time to party! Definitely something you should do!
