England

We run a selection of courses throughout the UK in Snow Centres and on Dry Slopes.

Please see individual venues for more information on what's included in the price you pay.

NB: Normally we make the decision to confirm or cancel a course 4 weeks prior to the course start date however in order to confirm a course we need to ensure that at the very least the course break even. The number of bookings required to break even fluctuates depending on Trainer expenses, resource costs, room hire, etc.
Sometimes with our summer UK course calendar we leave the decision to confirm/cancel until nearer the course start date in order to  give the course the best chance of running. This is possible due to the fact that many of our Trainers are able to be more flexible with other commitments in the summer months. To that end we ask members not to commit to any final decisions regarding accommodation and travel until you have been advised by BASI that the course is confirmed. 
BASI will communicate with all members 4 weeks prior to the course start date to advise whether the course is confirmed, cancelled or we intend to review this decision at a later date. Your patience and acceptance of this decision is much appreciated.
