About Us

New Generation have over 10 years of experience training ski instructors and what started as something we did for our friends has developed into something much more exciting. We now endeavour to guide and support those with a passion for skiing through their careers so they in turn can develop and inspire others. Whether it is for a gap year student or BASI 4 candidate we believe it is our responsibility to develop their skills and help them achieve their goals whether skiing related or not and that by doing this we create the best environment for everyone. As well as a ski instructor training centre New Generation are a fully functional ski school and this is what makes us truly unique. As well as being able to deliver every element of our training in house we are also uniquely positioned to be able to continue working with students once they are qualified. We have several members of the team who joined us for a gap course and have stayed ever since, some have even helped us open up new ski schools in new resorts.

The New Generation BASI level 1 and 2 Residential Ski instructor course are an awesome way to kick start a career in snow sports or spend a year out while earning some qualifications. Whilst attending our ski instructor training courses you are in a snow sport environment 100% of the time. The intention is for all students to be immersed in the culture and way of life of a snowsport instructor and to be totally focused on the outcome.

The residential courses are a fantastic opportunity to obtain a British ski instructor qualification in just ten weeks. All BASI exam fees and membership are included in the programmes. Our Ski instructor courses are based in Courchevel, Méribel and Verbier. All students receive expert coaching from New Generation’s top BASI Trainers. As well as on-snow coaching, training includes evening sessions, fitness and mobility and french lessons.
New Generation is a BASI Partner and approved by the British Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI) to promote and sell our Ski instructor Courses using the BASI qualification pathway.

Why New Generation?

We are the only Ski School with Instructor Training at the heart of who we are; we train and support instructors across all levels through the BASI system.

We are not a tour operator - we are a working Ski School and Ski Instructor Training Centre which gives us the ability to work with our trainees beyond their ski instructor training many stay with us and some have even continued their development and bow deliver the very courses that started their career.

We have been voted Ski School of the year by the Snow Awards and Which? Our courses include both the BASI Level 1 and 2 exams and all of the modules associated with these levels. All training is offered in house within our Ski School which means we can offer greater variety (including off piste, slopestyle and race training). All courses are run by our very experience BASI ISTD qualified Instructors.


New Generations Residential Ski Instructor Courses offer students 10 weeks of intensive performance coaching and personal development both on and off the snow. All students receive expert coaching from New Generation’s top current BASI Trainers and ISTD instructors. As well as on-snow coaching, training includes evening sessions and use of video. Each student is assigned a mentor who will look after the students on and off the snow, ensuring a gap experience they will remember for life. Mentors will work with students to write action plans which will be continuously developed throughout the course. The mentor system allows us to track students progression closely and offer individual help and support for all aspects of the course. With students in resort that are at all different stages of the instructor pathway we are able to set up structured practice sessions where our Level 3 trainee instructors can offer guidance and support to our BASI 1 & 2 students to help them to work on points highlighted by their mentors. Being at the heart of our working ski school will give you the perfect opportunity to develop confidence, presentation skills and group management skills and make awesome friends.
