These courses are not for the faint hearted they give you the perfect opportunity to develop your skiing and build the confidence to tackle the whole mountain whether attacking the pistes or cruising through the backcountry. However, they are shorter and more focused than our other programmes. Unlike our Courchevel and Meribel courses, these courses run from earlier in the season with the aim of helping people get quickly qualified so they can head off and work as ski instructors around the world. These courses can still be excellent gap year options though. If you are already a confident skier and you like the idea of being a little more self-responsible and perhaps working elsewhere in the world, then they could be for you. Students on our Stubai programme will have the opportunity to work a full season as an instructor with job opportunities everywhere from Japan to Austria. Our Verbier programme is more of a halfway house and finishes right before half term meaning you should quickly find work.
