Your career as ski instructor

Guide and Ride Instructor Academy will meet this November in Austria's Stubaital valley, one of the best glacial skiing areas in the world. In this intensive and highly professional training our coaches teach you skiing anew, using the most current training methods. After a three-week training phase you will not only be a trained ski instructor but also have discovered new spheres of skiing.

Guide and Ride Backcountry Training

The Guide and Ride Backcountry training is included in the three-week Instructor Academy course, during which you will learn basic skills and knowledge essential for unguided exploration off-piste. You will study the avalanche report and train emergency situations and their mitigation, as well as learn how to plan your ideal lines. So after a day of instructing you can clip on your freeride skis and set your own lines into powder.
