Why gapski ski instructor courses?
Tignes - best skiing in the world
Gapski is a 10 week ski instructor training programme based in Tignes, a lively and snow sure resort that sits at 2100m above sea level in the French Alps. Together with the neighboring resort of Val d’Isère they make up the world famous ski area known as the Espace Killy (so named after France’s Olympic downhill skiing champion Jean Claude Killy). It offers over 300km's of piste skiing and is well renowned for its off piste terrain and some of Europe’s most spectacular scenery. It really is one of the greatest ski areas in the world!
BASI - world recognised qualifications
Whether you are looking for an international qualification with a view to a career in the ski industry or simply a way to maximise your skiing potential whilst doing a season, then the gapski programme is the most comprehensive and effective ski training programme out there.
The gapski course is designed to train students through to BASI Level 2 which allows you to work as a ski instructor in various countries all over the world. Locations include UK snowdomes, Austria, Switzerland, New Zealand, and North America amongst others.
No hidden Costs - Gapski is all inclusive
