Taking your skiing to the next level without the help of an experienced coach can be very difficult.

Ski Instructor Training

A good coach helps you achieve your goals in the fastest possible manner.  Learning how to manage your performance expectations and recognise your success helps you build on your progress. Timely, accurate and simple feedback from your coach enables accelerated learning.  This method not only creates results quickly but also ensures these changes are consolidated and built on in the future.

“A clear technical understanding of simple skiing skills leaves the door open for fast and steady progress.”

Ski Instructor Training

Learn how to feel when it’s right, understand your objectives with renewed clarity.  By taking a course like this, you are taking control of your development.  Create a learning contract between yourself and your coach so you understand each other’s motivations and methods, and success is inevitable.
