Train & Work in the Swiss Alps for the whole 2016/2017 season!

Description

OnTheMountain Pro is the highly specialised training division of Neige Aventure Ski & Snowboard School, which is a carefully selected Official BASI Partner.

We have been providing BASI courses since 1998 and are proud to introduce two brand new courses that offer a unique combination of opportunities that will allow you to train, learn about teaching methodology, be in the best position to pass your BASI exams and to obtain work/work shadowing:

  • The Foundation Train & Work in the Swiss Alps (FTWSA) Course

AND

  • The BASI Train & Work in the Swiss Alps (BTWSA) Course.

Both courses offer phenomenal "bang-for-buck" value by allowing you to train, work, stay and ride the phenomenal 4 Vallées (including Verbier!) in the Swiss Alps and if you buy both, for the entire winter season (5 months)!

And if you come out for the whole season by taking both courses, not only will you get a special package deal, but you can have more work/work shadowing experience!

The TWSA Early Bird Discount ends on August 31st 2015 so if you want your accommodation to be extended for FREE until the end of the season AND you want to also get a discount of £450 GBP (Option dependent) get booking NOW!
