Why Peak Leaders? 

That’s a good question – and there’s a lot of competition out there.   

But we believe our experience, our expert team and our love of coaching (as well as bags of local knowledge) make a huge difference if you’re choosing a ski instructor training course.

Plus our courses have some pretty huge benefits…

Our Argentina course (July to Sept) is unique – an amazing cultural experience that gets you qualified (and employed) before the northern hemisphere winter even starts, while you train in one of the most amazing countries in the world.  

Our Saas Fee course (Sept to Nov) is perfect to get you qualified and ready to work for the northern hemisphere winter. You’ll be training in a stunning resort – sometimes watching World Cup stars train along side you. And you can go on to work almost anywhere in the world for the winter. 

Our Verbier course is run in our home resort, so we know the place like the back of our hand and we have amazing contacts here (and all over the mountains) to help you get work after the course.  
Why else? Well for a start all of our coaching is delivered by BASI ISTD's and BASI Trainers.  

We also have years and years of great pass-rates across all of our courses. So you benefit from up-to-date coaching techniques on the mountain, and also the best support off the hill like video feedback, job advice from instructors who know the industry as well as fitness coaching to get you ready for the exams.  

Most importantly you’re part of a working ski school full of professionals who are perfectly placed to help you start your career.

Getting a job

We’ve built up a huge database of contacts over the years, so we’re perfectly placed to help you find work.

We even have guaranteed interviews with ski schools as far apart as Canada, Switzerland and Japan.

Throughout your course we will help you decide where to go, apply to the right people and get the job teaching skiing that you really want.
