Instructor Academy

 

To become a Snowsports instructor at an indoor or dry slope, you’ll need a Level 1 instructor qualification.

If you would like to teach on the mountains, you may be able to do this in some ski resorts with a BASI or IASI Level 1 qualification, but you will mostly be required to have a Level 2 qualification.

Level 1 Ski or Snowboard Instructor Qualification

At The Snow Centre you can gain a Level 1 qualification 3 different organisations, BASI, IASI or SSE. If you are an experienced parallel skier or advanced level snowboarder you can become qualified to teach beginners to intermediate skiers/snowboarders of any age, at indoor slopes in the UK. If you are unsure of your ability or just want to get some extra practice before your instructor course, book onto one of our Skills Development Sessions where our coaches will be happy to assess your level and give you any pointers you may need before you start.

 

See the diagram below to find out which Level 1 course is right for you.

The word from the slopes

  • “Love it here. Great slope and the staff are really friendly. Also love the Alpine bar and viewing area. So pleased to have it back.”

  • “My family's first visit. It was a great day out, enjoyed a coffee and some cake before the lesson. Then enjoyed a lesson with a very calm and reassuring instructor. Would recommend a visit, it was good fun.”

  • “Our first visit to try out new boots before our holiday. A great way to get your "ski legs" back. Snow excellent, staff extremely helpful, facilities spotless and a nice coffee to end the session.”

  • “Overall my experience at the snow centre was INCREDIBLE. Everyone was so welcome and supportive as well it was easy to understand the prep before hand. As a beginner ive never got the hang of the basics so quickly, so a massive thank you to all instructors.”
