Working in the mountains doing what you love for a job is what many aspire to do. After all its hard to beat a job that requires you to ski during the day then socialise at night! If you love the mountains and want to spend a year full of adventure, meet great people and get a qualification that you can use for the rest of your life then join us for an adventure of a lifetime.
Becoming an Instructor
Many people who want to become a Ski Instructor are doing it because the job involves traveling to some amazing places, working outdoors, meeting new people and gaining a professional qualification.
Becoming a Ski Instructor will teach you a whole host of new skills. A good Instructor will inspire others, listen, have excellent communication and leadership skills. These fundamental values will build confidence and soft skills that you will use for the rest of your life.
Travel and Adventure
The reason people choose to travel before starting on a career is a desire to see the world and experience different cultures. Appreciate this is an old cliche but travel does broaden the mind. However, becoming a Ski Instructor offers so much more than just travel. Having a professional qualification means you can continue travelling, going back to the mountains each winter to teach skiing.
We follow the BASI (British Association Of Snowsport Instructors) structured route from Beginner to Instructor. BASI is recognised worldwide by all of the key snow sports destinations that skiers are likely to visit including: America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
Verbier and the Four Valleys is the biggest ski area in Switzerland, with 410km of linked pistes, 93 lifts and some of the highest skiing in the Alps. When it comes to off-piste, Verbier is one of the most renowned resorts in the Alps.
