Ski Instructor Training Courses – Full Focus
Our Full Focus ski instructor training courses are dedicated to skiers interested in one to one ski coaching.
Whether you are a ski instructor looking to prepare exams or a recreational skier looking to improve your abilities, our coaching team is ready for you!
The week comes with a package, that can be handpicked and changed around, following your needs.
Summer 2020 Special
For Summer 2020, given the complex situation with COVID19, our training will run in Zermatt from June until September.
We are available every day through out the summer, starting from the 6th June, to go skiing together on the Matterhorn Glacier.
Discounted rates are available for all instructors interested in making the most out of the summer with us in Zermatt. Get in touch to find out more and get your tailored training together.
Pick your Ski Coach
Here you can see who are the coaches available for the Full Focus weeks.
All coaches from Subzero Coaching are in a continuous development plan. Part of it is to keep on learning and attending qualifications courses in all aspects of sport and coaching. From strength and conditioning to nutrition, rehabilitation protocols, massages etc.
Through this continuous development we aim at rising the bar of our coaching quality, delivering you the best experience possible.
Pick your On-Snow Ski Instructor Training
Training on skis runs 5 days a week, 3 hours each day. Meeting points can be decided together and will always be directly on the hill, in order to maximize the time at disposal. If you want more (and you think your legs can take it) we’ll keep on going!
Always available in the training regime:
- Ski technique
– piste, off-piste, introduction to gates
- Teaching methodology
- Video Analysis on personal technique
- Video Analysis on teaching assessment
- Mountain Safety training
If you need to prepare for exams please let us know in advance which system you belong to. So far we have successfully trained instructors towards: CSIA, IASI, BASI, Swiss Snowsport, OSSV (austrian) and towards the AMSI (italian) selections.
Pick your Off-Snow Package
On top of the on-snow training we are able to include different services. Already in the package are two of the items in the list here below. Let us know your preferences and we’ll deliver them!
- Fitness Training
- Postural check up and training scheme
- Nutrition tips for skiing
- Sport/Recovery Massage (30′)
We believe that training should always have a global approach.
By adding up these extra activites we hope to increase the global awareness on how your body works. So you can avoid injuries and maximize the results of the time spent training. We are also available to follow up your progress by keeping in touch online and with periodical face to face meetings.
If you are keen in being followed more closely and in more detail you can also enter our “pro scheme” which we usually run only for professional athletes. Please note that this scheme contains physical tests and analysis that are provided by sport labs in Italy, for which travel and fees are considered extras.
Pick your skis!
We collaborate with two major ski brands of the market and we are able to offer rental services for top range skis.
The Training Centre stocks its own skis selection, so you can prebook your equipment and avoid having to travel with too much gear!
Beside our Rossignol collection we are also in partnership with Carpani Skis: handcraft producer of probably the best skis in the market.
Together, we have developed a new ski line dedicated to ski instructors!
The Subzero Line is available only through us. And only through us we can modify and tailor them around your needs. Each set of skis comes with a series of possible modifications, that we will decide together after biomechanic tests and field tests. Currently we are the only ones, beside maybe the World Cup Circuit, that can provide this level of customization on ski equipment.
Check out the full collection here and don’t worry about the price. You can rent them through us (limited numbers) or purchase them, also through us, at discounted rates!
Pick your dates!
Ski Instructor training is virtually possible only outside the winter peak weeks, so excluding Christmas, New Year, February Half Term and Easter. However, if for some reason you can only train during those weeks: please let us know as early as possible! We might be able to accomodate some requests.
We are live in Zermatt, where the ski area is open year round. And we are available year round!
Our long term ski instructor training courses run from October until May. So, on top of the standard one to one training, we are also able to offer shadowing hours; or ski instructor coaching experiences during that period.
If you are interested in becoming a ski instructor for the first time please let us know, as we have dedicated courses for you.
Get in touch with us!
Write to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, we are always available for any question you might have!
