BASI Level 3 I.S.I.A Training Course

Train & qualify for your ISIA before Christmas!

Bespoke technical and teacher training courses delivered by BASI trainers that deliver the current BASI level 3 assessments.

In 2013 Snoworks GAP created its new BASI level 3 I.S.I.A training programme. Going into its third year we have taken on your feedback and adjusted it accordingly and we hope that you will agree that this training programme is even better! Candidates can train pre-season on the glacier in Tignes, France in preparation for the level 3 technical and teaching modules in Zermatt that autumn, or use it to prepare yourself for future assessments, giving you lots to think about and work on during your winter season.


Sat October 29th – December 10th 2016

(Please note the first 4 weeks of this course are "all day" as this is on the glacier, the last 2 weeks are half days, 3 hours per day Monday - Friday) 



"Personal performance training" (Tignes, France)


  • This course is primarily about high-level performance skiing, this will set you up perfectly for success at assessment.
  • We give you the knowledge, skills and understanding of the standards needed for examination.
  • Your time will be divided for skill developments in 'piste performance' 'moguls' and 'variables/off-piste'.
  • Pre season training provides perfect terrain. A world cup bump line, pistes of all gradients and as winter arrives so will the chance to train variables/off-piste.
  • In addition to this we will provide you with a greater understanding of the BASI teaching and delivery styles, fundamentals and performance threads needed for both the technical and teaching aspects of the I.S.I.A award

What's NEW for 2016?

  • The first 4 weeks are full days up on the glacier (approx 4hrs per day), the last 2 weeks are 3 hours per day as the full Espace Killy will be open
  • We have removed the BASI exam fees from the price, whilst keeping the training inline with the exams in Zermatt, thus giving you the choice to train, or train and present for assessment. We strongly advise calling BASI and paying a deposit on your assessments as the pre season exams fill up quickly 
  • We have changed from 10 to a group to 8 in order to give you the best quality of training 
  • The price, it’s CHEAPER than it was in 2014! SnoworksGAP knows how hard it is to get training and keep the cost down (We have all been through this process, and we are aware that by this stage in your instructor pathway you may have contacts or deals on travel, accommodation and lift passes)
  • The accommodation options have been removed, but are still available – choose from our partners ‘Tignes Chalet Company’ a fantastic and price sensitive option perfectly set up for PRO training needs. ‘Mark Warner’ for a 3-star chalet hotel experience, or self catering and take a ‘course only’ package with us.

What's staying in 2016?

  • The promise that a BASI trainer that currently delivers level 3 assessments, we understand the importance of having the most current and focused trainers available.
  • The flexibility – whilst the course program is better taken as a block of training of multiple weeks, we have the flexibility and price structures to accommodate your needs from anything between 1 and the full 6 weeks. email us for bespoke programmes

So my journey with SnoworksGAP started on a Snoworks “All Terrain” course with 4-times Olympian Emma Carrick-Anderson, I was having a chat on a chairlift about how my job sucked. She said I should do the SnoworksGAP course and head out to Japan "to teach and ski pow".
