The Skiing & Training
Useful Information before starting your course
We know you will have loads of questions about what else you might need for your course, where to stay and more…
What additional costs do I need to consider?
Unlike train-only courses, you don’t need to worry about buying your own lift pass. You will be provided with an Arlberg lift pass on arrival, and your very own North Face Gore Tex uniform too.
Food and living
There are many supermarkets in and around St Anton which offer a wide range of foods, including sandwiches and other takeaway food for a quick and cheap lunch. In resort there are a number of bars and restaurants, ranging from very cheap (you can buy a burger for around €6) to very fancy (think Sushi!). You’ll be spoilt for choice, and can choose how much you spend.
During the day there are a number of free buses which regularly go to and from from all towns around resort (St. Anton, St. Christoph, St. Jakob, Pettneu, Schnann, Flirsch, Strengen). After 6pm buses are generally €2.90 and run all evening.
Note: This course is still under construction so please check back soon for updates on accommodation etc.
How much work will I have?
Our full-time and training teams both travel to resort just before the season begins for training, and once guests start to arrive you will be available for work!
Our busiest weeks are Christmas, New Years, February Half Tern and Easter, so you will mainly working during these times. Outside of the peak weeks you will be available for work when not training.
If you wish to work in other roles during the course this is also possible. Bar work and cleaning are not the most glamorous jobs but pay well and normally fit with the course schedule.
This course is still under construction so please check back soon for more information about when you will be working during the course.
Note: Before applying, students must have completed the BASI Level 2 qualification and successfully applied to have their qualification recognised in the Tirol region.
Currently BASI do not run exams in the St Anton area. However it is possible to take exams in nearby resorts such as Hintertux, and we hope to have more local exams in the pipeline too. Please check back soon for updates on exam availability in St Anton.

FREE Indoor ISIA Sessions
Throughout the summer and autumn months we will be running FREE ISIA training sessions at snowdomes around the UK. The sessions will be a great chance to meet out trainers, have a ski and to get an action plan of things to work on before the winter. The training you will receive is completely free, all you will need to pay for is your slope pass.
Places on these sessions are limited, to secure a place please email firstname.lastname@example.org
As soon as you start your ISIA qualification you will realise that there is no right way to complete your instructors qualifications, it is all about finding the way that is right for you.
For students who successfully complete their ISIA qualification as part of this course or any of our other programmes we have our highly successful Verbier ISTD training team. This team combines work during the busy periods of the season with an intensive 6 week training programme leading up to the Level 4 tech and teach exams.
If spending a whole season training is not for you then you could consider our exam prep weeks. Run by our Tech team which consists of BASI trainers, Eurotest openers and BASI demo team members these weeks are the perfect way to make the final changes before your exams.
We quite often find that upon completion of their ISIA students who did decide to join the Verbier ISTD training team quite often stay with New Generation and work in one of our ski schools, perhaps even running the same courses they began their careers on.
Other BASI Level 3 ISIA courses
If our St Anton BASI Level 3 work and train programme is not right for you, then not worry, we have other training programmes available in Verbier and Courchevel.
