SnowSkool Instructor Courses in the Three Valleys
Three Valleys, France
SNOWBOARD & SKI INSTRUCTOR COURSE RESORT GUIDE
The Three Valleys is, simply put, the world's largest and the world's favourite ski area. Three stunning valleys linked up by eight resorts attract more skiers and snowboarders than any other ski resort! In such an area, diversity rules...you have Val Thorens (high), Méribel (cool), Courchevel (swanky) and Saint Martin de Belleville (picturesque) amongst other resorts and countless villages.
With regards to the skiing, where do we even begin? 600km of pistes, more than 2000 metres of vertical, 296 lifts, mile upon mile of glorious backcountry, Olympic downhill runs, freestyle parks, half-pipes, boarder/ skier-cross circuits and hundreds of slopeside bars and restaurants. Whether you are looking to test your skills on some steep off-piste terrain or whether you are looking to enjoy the sunshine and well-groomed pistes whilst you ski from bar to bar (to restaurant to bar), the Three Valleys will spoil you rotten!
THE BEST BASI COURSE ON OFFER?
Where our BASI snowboard & ski instructor courses stand apart from others is in the quality of accommodation we offer and the expert tuition we provide.
SnowSkool has acquired three chalets in Méribel Valley through our accommodation provider, Les3Chalets. Chalets will be used to house students in luxury with breakfast & evening meals served six days per week.
When it comes to the snowboard and ski tuition, SnowSkool works with a British owned Ski & Board School. The School is made up entirely of BASI ISTD ski instructors & snowboard instructors - this is absolutely the highest level available and so you know that you are learning in the hands of the best ski and snowboard instructors in the Three Valleys.
24 HOURS IN THE THREE VALLEYS
Harry Butler 25 years old from Derbyshire, UK SnowSkool ski instructor course, Three Valleys 2009
“On non-training days, I like to get up and out by 10am and begin the day with some lap training to get the blood flowing in my legs. At 11.30am, I’ll stop for a coffee and a seat in the sun. Before lunch, I’ll practice the drills we focussed on during the week...not the most fun part of my day but the course is very intense and practicing what we have learnt during the week is essential. Lunch will normally be taken at a slopeside restaurant: Tartiflette is my favourite and will set me up well for an afternoon session of carving as fast as I can until my leg muscles burst! We’ll normally take dinner back at the chalet which, at the weekends, is a raucous affair...everyone is in a good mood and the wine/ beer flow! Most Saturday nights, we’ll head out in Méribel – it is renowned as France’s craziest après-ski venue... The Ronnie [le Rondpoint] and Dick’s Tea Bar are great and Dick's is open late but there are also plenty of seasonnaire bars where it is not so busy, loud and expensive! We’ve got work to do after all!”
