BASI Level 1 and 2 Gap CourseWhile we don't expect people to be world cup skiers or boarders, students are expected to have a willingness to try bumps, improve their powder skiing, and develop their carving. At the start of our course students should be able to ski confidently on red runs linking turns down the fall line and being in control of their speed.
If you are unsure of your level don't hesitate to contact us and we can always arrange to meet you over the summer for a ski/board on one of the snow domes or dry slopes around the U.K.
