Altitude Futures training courses

ski instructor training verbier
Altitude Ski and Snowboard school is one of the only ski schools in Verbier which runs its own instructor training program. Many of our talented instructors come from the Altitude Futures program- every year we discover new talent and after a period of intense training they are ready to join our team. From BASI Gap courses to the Swiss Patent, anything is possible with Altitude Futures.

In this article we highlight some of the achievements of our instructors during this winter season.
