ES Academy Ski Coaches & Ski Instructor Trainers

Most ISIA Training programmes are run by one or two “names”. The ES approach is to utilise a breadth of highly talented ES Academy Ski Coaches and Ski Instructor Trainers with expertise in various qualification systems, and who specialise in key aspects of the programme. This is a big advantage as it’s essential you get not only consistent coaching but also be exposed to a variety of teaching styles and teaching methods. ES Academy Coaches are not only very able and qualified but also highly enthusiastic, having fun will help to get the most out of your training!  Beyond the core team ES has other experts; these include former world champions, national team racers (Swiss team) and instructors from around the world. We have a team than can offer a tremendous depth of experience.

ES Academy Ski Coaches and Ski Instructor Trainers train together to develop ideas that will improve not only the instructors’ performance but the experiences and lessons delivered by ES on a daily basis. In addition to the experienced trainers outlined above we have many other talented pro’s including Italian Maestros, French Nationales and Swedish Examiners. Talented ski instructors build quality ski schools which greatly enhance the skiing experience of those who have chosen Switzerland as their destination. Verbier and Zermatt have competitive and highly regulated ski school environments.  ES prides itself on being the best quality ski school in the best Swiss resorts. Achieving this goal requires a constant investment in staff training and development.
