to mix & match season long



It's possible to work as a ‘stagiere’ (or trainee ski instructor) in France by undertaking the Test Technique. Not only will this provide you with yet more valuable experience, but the Test Technique is often better paid than other Level 2 instructor positions available in the ski industry.


We offer winter season training for the Test Technique, based in Courchevel, France. We use the World Cup Stade in order to do this, which is a very reliable and well-maintained piste that offers a variety of pitches for all stages of your learning.


As with all of the ski instructor training courses we offer, the programme includes French lessons, fitness classes, and invaluable support from both our mentor and physio.

(Training dates exclude New year, Christmas, Half Term and Easter)
