Subzero Coaching Testimonials

“If your goal is to take your skiing to the next level, you are at the right place! Can’t recommend it highly enough 🙂 and a large community of likeminded snow sport lovers awaits you here within and beyond Subzero”.

Daniel O’Dor‘s quote comes after attending two courses with us during the 2018/19 season: the Autumn Ski Instructor course (towards the Level 1&2) and the ISIA Level 3 Winter programme. Dan came to us after a comprehensive research of the global instructor training market. Dan is indeed a determined globe trotter, he would have gone anywhere if he thought it was worth it.
Here are the other questions we answered at the end of the season with us:

What were the highlights of the training?
Every single day felt like the highlight of the season at the time, but if I had to pick a single one > The off piste day led by a local mountain guide at the foot of the Matterhorn’s glacier

What was your biggest learning?
Overcoming disliking moguls to actually really enjoying skiing in the bumps 

Would you recommend the course/coach and if so why?
100%, because you get bespoke coaching by someone who deeply and passionately cares about you succeeding and achieving whatever your goals might be on or off skis.

How would you describe your experience in one sentence? It has surpassed my dreams and expectations in every way possible.

Testimonials from Subzero Coaching courses

Will Wing Pang, ISIA L3 Team
“All the exercises have been useful to my skiing career; I saw a huge improvement in all areas of my skiing, longs, shorts, bumps and off piste. One thing that really helped was to understand how I preferred to learn. Being able to better understand new ideas and practices made a big difference; as well as how to teach differently.”
His advice?
Excellent training, excellent trainers, excellent company. Just do it.”

Ian Mearns, ISIA L3 Team

“My favourite day on snow was skiing fresh snow (whenever we had it) with the whole Subzero crew, it’s such a blast. Whenever we had a good dump Fede our trainer made sure we got some miles in on the fresh stuff!!!”

“My skiing has improved massively, I came into the season below ISIA standard and with the help of Subzero Coaching I have managed to pass my level 3 technical exam and am comfortably skiing to this level since the exam.
My teaching has also improved tremendously, again with the help of Subzero Coaching but also I have gained a lot of real life teaching from the ski school during busy periods.”
His advice?
“Most of all … embrace it!!!!!!!”

Kieran Whelan, Autumn Gap Course

“The course has been really interesting; it started off completely stripping back my technique and going back to basics. It was really interesting to re-learn step by step the components of skiing technique, it gave me a much better understanding of the way I ski and how my future students should be learning to ski”

“The lectures on equipment was very insightful. Now I actually know what to look for when buying my equipment in future.”

Ellie Braine, Autumn Gap Course
“I am really enjoying the course, even though it is tough. It is also extremely rewarding when you do progress and achieve things you couldn’t achieve at the beginning. I have definitely had my good and my bad days, but the patience and support of the whole group have helped me so much.”

Ski instructor training

“Apart from the time we spend on the mountains; I have really enjoyed Friday night dinners, drinks and ski movies nights all organised by Caroline (our course coordinator). One thing I highly recommend doing is going paragliding! One of the best experiences I have ever had in one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Don’t want to leave !”
Gemma Deed, ISIA L3 Team
My confidence in my skiing and teaching abilities has increased greatly throughout the season, I realised that not only did I enjoy teaching but that I am pretty good at it too!”
Her advice?

“Do it. The ISIA programme offers way more than just on snow training and exceeded all my expectations”

Lello Clark, ISIA L3 Team
This was my first winter season and it couldn’t have gone better.  I met some really great people and the fact we all got on so well really made it a season never to be forgotten.”

“I set myself a few goals before the season began and one of them was to gain more teaching experience.  To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to teach as much as I actually did, so all on all I am really happy to have had the opportunity and I feel far more confident with teaching.”
His advice?
Sign up. Now.”

Charlie Prowse, Autumn Gap Course
“Going back to basics and correcting our basic skiing such as the plough which I though I was great at but turned out I had some mistakes. Going back to basics and correcting the mistakes has benefitted me greatly. Now I have more understanding of the skiing movements and how they help you to perform at a more advanced level.”
“One thing that I have learnt that has really changed my skiing is how tall I stand. Before I came on the course I felt that I was quite low but from the video recording that we do I have seen that I stand very tall. It really helped me as I can see how I ski and have now corrected this. Skiing with a much more stable body position has improved my skiing greatly.”

Subzero Coaching Results

With a coaching team coming from a competition background in various sports, we are fully aware that the game isn’t just a game. Results have to be delivered. We believe these results go beyond just skiing, as the experiences we make have to go beyond the simple exercise of adding up numbers and ticking boxes.
For this reason we do our best to create an environment in which each individual can grow and achieve which ever goal in life.
That said, trackable numbers are still important.
We are proud to say that, so far, each generation of Gap courses and ISIA L3 courses were successful at all the modules they have been booking onto.
As well, all  participants to the Gap Courses were able to secure a job by the end of the course with us.
At the Level 4 we also had excellent results, led by our Matthew Grundy, who joined us as Level 2 and managed to complete the full Level3 and pass the Level 4 Tech and ISIA Speed Test by the end of the second season together.
