What level skier do you need to be?
Your entry level to the course depends on a number of factors so it's always best to contact us directly to discuss your level. You can email Gap director and BASI trainer, Lee Townend on lee@snoworks.co.uk for further information and guidance.  As a rough guide, to reach the required level within the 8 weeks before arriving, you need:

• To be able to ski all pisted runs competently and at a good speed
• To be able to ski the fall line on black runs
• To be reasonably fit
• To have a good mental attitude
• To be willing to try new things and take on board new information.

Roughly a minimum of 10 weeks previous skiing is a prerequisite but this can vary, it really depends on the individual.

*Test Technique Training
For those with prior race training experience you have the option of training for your Test Technique. This is a timed slalom test that combined with a BASI level 2 will qualify you to work in France for recognised ski schools. This is a unique opportunity only available with Snoworks Autumn Gap.
