We are a team of fully qualified ski teachers and race coaches who specialise in performance skiing, whether is be specific race training, piste performance, back country or instructor training, we have the experience and knowledge needed to run courses in a professional way and help you get the most out of your skiing.


"Beyond a ski school..."

We decided to set up this extra devision of the Swiss ski school in Saas Fee to extend peoples awareness of were performance skiing can lead to. Most people think skiing stops once you can ski down every run in resort - we're here to show you that skiing starts here and how you can get the most out of this amazing sport.

At TSA we full-time career ski instructors and race coaches who have made it our life's mission to help skiers achieve their on snow ambitions. 

One area we're really good at - Instructor Training!

At TSA we are not a course provider who never steps foot in a resort, we are the ski teachers on the ground that you will meet and train with. We live and work here in Saas Fee and we were once in yours shoes…we get it.

Having spent our entire lives in the ski industry and years training ski instructors, we know how to get most out of our students and run the perfect instructor training courses coherent to the ski system you're training in - but most importantly we have fun doing it...that's the point right?!

As passionate skiers and coaches, we aim to inspire our skiers with the same energy thats drives us everyday. Come and share this lifestyle with us and see how The Ski Academy can change your outlook.

Ultimately ski instructing fuelled our passion for the mountains and this lifestyle. We’re lucky to wake up here everyday and call this place home - now let us pass this onto you

What started off as a conversation about how it's a shame people stop their progression after "standard ski school" led us to setting up The Ski Academy. We knew by creating this academy, we could train people with a real interest in higher levels of skiing and who want to excel in their sport more than ever. So we thought let's start with good skiers and make them great skiers!

We decided to look into our back grounds and our own passions within skiing and use our strengths to create this ski school. We are ski racers, freeride back country skiers, passionate piste performance skiers and long term ski instructors - so we knew this was the best way do a fantastic job - do what we love everyday and work with the performance skier themselves to unlock their potential.
