Why choose The Ski Academy


That's a good question when there are so many places to go and companies to choose from, you could even choose from loads of different organisations to ski with. Our experience in this industry is what enables us to back ourselves and guaranty we are the best in the business - we’ve been doing this for a very long time. Every course we’ve delivered has been learnt from and improved upon, this is how we’ve become top of our game and can stand behind our name with pride. We are all qualified ski instructors and race trainers and deliver courses based on what we know and do.

Expert coaching using progressive methods

Our ski coaches are all highly experienced and qualified from multiple ski systems and backgrounds giving us a well rounded understanding of our profession. On our instructor training courses we teach the BASI syllabus which is internationally recognised and most highly regarded. The level one and two exams are then run by a BASI examiner so all training is consistent with the exams. The courses are well structured and it’s clear at each stage what you need to achieve. All instructor gap course's are done in English.


Why did we choose Saas Fee

We choose to work and live in the snow sure resort of Saas Fee with its year round skiing and Europe's best high altitude glacier so that we can guarantee the snow conditions and run our courses with ease. This gives us the chance to run pre season gap courses so we can have our students ready before the season would normally begin. Nine months of skiing is better than four! On top of that Saas Fee is specifically geared up for all outdoor activities that complement our ski training courses, from sports facilities to stunning outdoor hikes.

In resort support


Not every day is the perfect day and sometimes you’ll need a bit of help. We have a member of staff in resort throughout your course, a mentor so to speak, who can help with all sorts of on and off the hill stuff. This is always a ski coach who has experience in all aspects of the ski course and the town. Any help from admin to transfers, ski advice to where sells the best beer - we’re there to help!
