BASI Level 4 Training

| Ski | Verbier |

Our BASI Level 4 work and train course is hard work, but also a rewarding and enjoyable way to take your skiing to the next level. We firmly believe that with our experience as the most established BASI Ski School and training provider in Verbier, you will benefit from the best training and support to enable you to achieve your maximum potential.

The primary focus throughout the course will be on developing your technical skiing ( piste, bumps and variables ). If there is demand we will also focus on the teaching exam and the European Mountain Security (EMS) Assessment.  Our training is delivered by the most experienced and top qualified BASI and Swiss coaches & trainers who have a huge passion for preparing instructors for passing their exams.

Is our BASI Level 4 training right for you?

This course is perfect for those wishing to work within a busy ski school, while training to reach the top level in the quieter weeks of the season. Anyone who has already achieved their full BASI ISIA qualification or equivalent is welcome to apply.

Our established ski school in Verbier has a wide range of clients of all ability levels and from all over the world, to allow you to develop your teaching alongside your technical skiing during the training weeks.
