Mini-Gap Courses For Wannabe Instructors

Mini-Gap Courses For Wannabe Instructors

September 21, 2011 |  by Phil Smith  |  Article, GAP Courses, PRO Training

Every year more recreational skiers get the ‘pro bug’, wanting to become ski instructors or pro racers – taking skiing from vacation to vocation, through a fantastic and fulfilling life-changing journey.

Now Snoworks has a taster course which won’t break the bank either…

If the idea of a ‘ski gap’ course is too costly and time consuming – at Snoworks, we’ve come up with ‘MINI-GAP’, where you can trial the experience of instructor or race training! You can spend one, two, three weeks or even stay on and finish the whole eight weeks (should you decide) – skiing with those training for their ski instructor exams or the racing circuit… giving you as much time as you need to decide if a ‘professional skiing life’, really is for you!

Recreational skiers with professional ambitions

Spending a week skiing alongside skiers training for their BASI Level 1 & 2, or even training for higher levels, BASI 3 & 4, will give you the inspiration and insight needed to help you make the decision to pursue a professional skiing career or qualification. You can also train alongside ski instructors and racers training for the Eurotest and Test Technique qualifications.

Whilst our iSKI programme is there to develop your skiing from ski school intermediate to all-mountain expert – to get a real taste of how professional skiers tick, only training with the pros will truly cut it!
