For the 10 week, the 8 week, and the 5 week L1 only courses we ask that you can ski a red/black run in control, with confidence. You don't need to be able to do this with any super style, just as long as you can deal with the terrain.
For the 5 week Intensive L1 & L2 course we ask that you can ski all groomed runs with confidence, and that you can take on the challenge of an off trail run, consistently linking your turns in most conditions. Able to do flowing short turns and the ability to ski in the fall line on varied terrain would a minimum level before you arrive.
These levels of skiing are a starting point and from this point development will be required to achieve the required standard for the NZSIA qualifications.
During the 10, 8, 5 weeks there is a lot to learn so that we ask that you have this minimum level before you arrive.
If you feel that you are an athletic person that could improve quickly then there is the possibility for you to be below this level, although we would hesitate to recommend it for everyone.
We have a number of different ski instructor courses available.
