Please Note:  Prices shown for courses at Chillfactore Manchester, Hemel Hempstead, Snowfactor Braehead, include course fee lift pass only and do not include the cost of accommodation, insurance or travel to/from the venue.  Prices shown for courses at other venues are for the course fee only.

If you are a member of staff at a UK Venue wishing to attend a BASI course, please do not book online. Ask your employer to email BASI confirmation of employment and we will discount the slope fee from the total cost of the course, if applicable. It is essential that we receive this confirmation before processing your booking as no retrospective slope fee refunds will be available. You will have to contact BASI to provide payment for your course.

If you are booking onto a Level 1 Course, you will be issued with the Snowboard/Generic Manual on the first day of your course - please DO NOT buy them.

Scottish Ski Areas:  If you live nearby and can attend at short notice when conditions look good, the Scottish ski areas are a tremendous asset, but conditions in Scotland are unpredictable.  In the event of extreme weather or lack of snow preventing access to the ski area(s), BASI reserves the right to move any Level 1 course to a local dry slope or another ski area.  There will be daily uplift charges at any slope we use, so please do not purchase any lift passes until you meet with your Trainer on the first morning of your course.

BASI accepts no liability for any travel or accommodation costs incurred should a course be cancelled.
