Verbier ski instructor training

BASI Level 3 Instructor Course student

After completing my BASI level 1&2 in France I found myself finishing off the season here in Verbier/ la Tzoumas where my love of the area started. Meeting Jon on the lift he got me thinking ahead for the following season, so I started to look into my future with Altitude and booked on to train for my ISIA.

Ski Dubai

Sadly while working the summer in Ski Dubai I injured my knee, so had to postpone my season with altitude. So after a long recovery I finally made it back to Verbier. After a massive build up of excitement and apprehension training with altitude has failed to disappoint, and has been an amazing experience.

Supportive group, trainers and colleagues

Very nervous about getting back on my skis I couldn’t ask for a more supportive group of trainers and colleagues helping me build up my courage again. Although not all my exams this season have been a success I definitely feel well and truly on the way to completing all my goals as an instructor. I would recommend joining altitude futures to anyone looking at taking their skiing to the next level, as I know I will definitely be flying back from Australia for more fun and training with Altitude.
