Generation have more than a decade of experience training ski instructors across
the Alps. What started as something we did for our friends has developed into
something much more exciting.
we aim to guide and support those with a passion for skiing. By succeeding in
their exams and developing a career, you can in turn can develop and inspire
others to enjoy skiing. It is our responsibility to create the right
environment for you to develop your skills and achieve your goals. So whether
you’re a gap year student, someone looking to switch careers or a BASI Level
4 candidate, we have the course for you.
Our BASI Level
1 & 2 Residential Ski instructor courses are
an awesome way to kick-start a career or spend a year out while earning some
qualifications. These courses are based in Courchevel, Méribel, Villars and
Verbier. Living in the Alps for 2-3 months allows you to be immersed in the ski
culture, gaining a taste of what it’s like to be an instructor and receiving
totally focused training.
All BASI exam and membership fees are included in our
programmes, as well as 180 hours of on-snow training, off-snow support and
learning, language lessons and even your own avalanche kit to keep. All
students receive expert coaching from New Generation’s top BASI trainers and
can explore new skills with focused days in racing, freeride and park skiing.
We don’t stop there – we have a complete instructor
training pathway, meaning we help develop instructors right all the way from
BASI 1 to 4. Many choose to stay with New Generation after becoming fully
qualified, which means a lot to us.
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 not
a tour operator - we are a working ski school and ski instructor training
centre. Developing instructors is therefore central to New Generation, and
gives us the ability to work with our trainees beyond their ski instructor
training. Being at the heart of our working ski school provides trainees with
the perfect environment to develop confidence, presentation skills, group
management skills and make awesome friends along the way.
Generation being a fully functioning ski school is
something that makes us truly unique: as well as being able to deliver training
in-house, we are also 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 with New Generation. Some have even helped us open up new ski
schools in new resorts, delivered instructor training or examined trainees as
We aim to
do more than just tick boxes with our courses - that’s why all residential

offer greater variety (including off piste, slopestyle and race training). All
courses are run by our experienced BASI ISTD qualified Instructors, meaning
you’ll receive the highest quality training and become the best instructor you
performance coaching and personal development both on and off the snow is
crucial to your progression as an instructor. Therefore all students receive

instructors. As well as on-snow coaching,
training includes evening sessions and use of video-analysis.
