Yes. However, this season Altitude Futures students will receive the sought after “Ski Instructor Pro Deal” which offers up to 40% discounts on ski equipment. We also have a deal with 50% off Rossignol equipment in the UK.

Will you meet us at the Airport?

Yes, included in the cost of the GAP course is your transfer to the resort from the airport and back to the airport at the end of the course.

Can we come for Christmas and stay in the accommodation after the course?

Altitude Futures will make every effort to organise this for you. Please request this when reserving your place on the course.
