Private Coaching£50 per hour

Great for focusing on the fundamentals when you already know exactly what you have to do to pass. Or if you need to find out whats holding you back.

Group Coaching – £25 per hour

Running on both Mondays and Wednesdays these 4 hour sessions include a lunch break and time to run through some Video Analysis before heading back onto the slope to continue training. If you have the goal of passing a BASI or IASI level 1 or 2 these days are a great opportunity to train with some of BASI’s best trainers.

BASI CPD and Resit Days Available£250

UK based training is a key foundation to achieving success for anyone not based in the mountains. It offers a place to build strong basic techniques and supplements your training in the mountains.

With all the challenges that Covid-19 has brought, this UK based training opportunity sidesteps quarantines in exchange for reliability and consistency. 

Set up by our very own BASI Trainers James Bennett and Craig Robinson in 2009, PDS (formally JJC) have been delivering training and courses for many winter seasons and have represented BASI at events such as Interski.

Their sole mission is to “best equip you with the skills you need to succeed”.

Our coaches are second to none, the team consists of Eurotest openers, Basi Trainers and ISTD instructors! They have a history of delivering and coaching at the highest level – underneath the cool, calm exteriors they have the competitive drive that will push you to be successful.

They invest time and effort ensuring your programme is as individual as you are. Need additional training? They will cover it. Need help with your fitness? They will add cardio to your programme.

Skiing indoors is very valuable when it comes to improving in a mountain environment. The reason for this is that the Hemel Snow Centre has a quick turn around and you don’t spend long on the lifts or queuing. Which means lots of skiing and repetitions of exercises that help improve overall technique.

For group sessions indoors there will be a cap of 4 people. This limits waiting times and give you a more personal session in a group training enviroment.

Private Coaching

Train 1 to 1 with some the UK’s leading skiers and Examiners. For those looking for a focus session based around the Fundamentals of skiing.
