If there is one place that is recognized for its magical mountains and skiing culture, it would be Switzerland. So become a ski instructor in Switzerland! It’s no coincidence that skiers from all over the world have this unique Alpine country on the top of their bucket list and now you have the chance to make this your winter-wonderland as a ski instructor in Nendaz, Switzerland!
We are happy to run a 4 week level 1 IASI course in near-guaranteed epic winter conditions in the Swiss Alps. You will live in Nendaz, which lays right in the heart of the world-renowned 4 Vallées ski resort, one of Switzerland’s biggest ski resorts offering some of the best and most varied terrain in the world.
From the beginning of January, you will participate in our 4 weeks, fully English spoken, IASI level 1 ski instructor course, which is designed to gain basic qualification to work in indoor or dry ski slopes back at home and experience a taste of the ski instructor industry.
As a part of the course, you will receive a 4 Valleys lift pass for 1 month, 4 weeks shared accommodation, 120 hours of training, an outdoor first aid course, a pre-course fitness program, intro to mountain safety training, video analysis, and much more. In short; with comfort in our highly experienced trainers from Sommet et Neige, we guarantee that this will be your life’s most developmental ski experience packed with high fives and fun!
Once you have finished and passed the program, you can call yourself an official Level 1 IASI ski instructor!
