Our New Zealand ski instructor short course is an intensive and challenging programme. In just 5 weeks we aim to take you through Level 1 & 2 NZSIA instructor qualifications. This is not for the faint-hearted.

Training takes place across two resorts, Coronet Peak and The Remarkables whilst you live in the nearby town of Queenstown. You’ll receive professional training and mentoring 6 days a week. There will be 12 intensive training days before your exam. There will be regular personal assessment, evening sessions and video analysis. With everything set up for fast-track improvement, you’ll be prepared to take your Level 1 NZSIA certification in week three going on to take your level 2 in the final week.

If you are a competent skier and believe you have the determination to succeed, this is the course for you.

Adrenaline seekers will love Queenstown and it’s surrounding resorts – the moguls and steeps are every skiers dream, and, if you need anything more to entice you to New Zealand we throw in a day’s heli skiing so you can experience the excitement of the back country – it’s a real once in a lifetime opportunity!
