IASI Level 1 Rolling Carpet Ski Instructor Course at Ski Easy
Subzero Coaching (official licenced course provider for IASI) is running a Level 1 Rolling Carpet Ski Instructor course at Ski Easy. Ski Easy is an indoor ski facility based on Dukes Meadows in Chiswick, London!
This is a great opportunity to get started with the ski instructor pathway with a unique qualification.
The Rolling Carpet Slope
The carpet provides a sliding surface controlled by the instructor. With a remote control, both in speed and gradient can be adjusted! This allows the teacher to create the most ideal situation for the learner. Furthermore progressive challenges can be added as soon as the basics are acquired. Additionally, this is the only ski facility that features mirrors. The slope faces a wide, tall mirror, so that the performer can see him/herself in action. This allows a very unique opportunity for self assessment.
It is useful for beginners to understand the movements as they make them for the first time. It is also very interesting for the high end performers to have an immediate visual feedback on the symmetry of their body and motion patterns.
Skiers can find rolling carpets dotted around the world, from London, where Ski Easy is located to Dublin all the way to Interlaken (yes, Switzerland!) and many other places.
We have skied rolling carpets in many major events, from the Italian Ski Show back in 2009 all the way to Interski 2019 (world biggest international event for ski instructors).
The IASI Level 1 Rolling Carpet Qualification
IASI is the only association in the world to provide a dedicated rolling carpet qualification. This indoor environment has been developed through the years to enable skiers to slide without the use of artificial snow (indoor dome) or the use of plastic covered terrain (dryslopes). As this is a unique environment, with very specific needs, IASI recognized years ago that a dedicated course would be the most appropriate solution.

The course runs for a total of 5 compulsory days, with 2 days training and 3 days assessment.
2nd + 3rd September (Sept 2nd run by Ski Easy)

Total cost for the 4 days course: 410 euros (£370) per person.
Ski Easy is able to provide shadowing opportunities and training prior to the course, to maximise the chances of success. This will also fullfil the IASI minimum requisites for this course.
Also compulsory is the First Aid Course, which can be attended at the Ski Easy – Dukes Meadows facility on the 29th & 30th August.
