Prices and T&Cs

This programme is priced competitively and reflects our desire to attract a serious group of part time instructors who will remain with us and develop within ES becoming full time as they progress.

The pricing is as follows:

ES Academy commencing December 2017
£ 1950

These prices are the training fee only and do not include lift passes, insurance or BASI course fees.  ES will help you find accommodation but we believe finding your own is an important part of working as a snowsports professional.
We will put you in touch with the rest of the ES team who will help you find a place to stay if you don’t already have one.
