13 Week

Instructor Program

The BASI Level 2 Snowboard Instructor Course is aimed at riders who have successfully completed the level 1 course and are looking at taking the next step to work and teach all over the world. It takes places in our winter base of Arinsal in Andorra.

If you haven’t got your level 1 then click here to be taken to our Instructor Training page. Here you will find more details on completing this initial 5 day course with us either in the UK at one of the indoor centres or with us in Andorra prior to the Level 2 program.

Being a Level 1 before arriving in resort means you will leave a better, more experienced instructor AND have a much greater chance of passing the exam as you already know what to expect prior to arrival. This is our unique approach. No one else does it this way. This dedicates 100% of your time with us to passing the Level 2. We can hit the ground running from day 1.

During this 13 week in resort program you’ll shadow lessons, receive proper training by the Snowboard Coach trainers who are all qualified at the highest level attainable through the BASI system. This ensures the best and correct training throughout the program.

We don’t use snowboard instructors from any other governing body or call anyone else in. Why would we when they don’t know the how the BASI system works?

Our package price starts from just £4,995 and is the cheapest out there. Our price includes all accommodation for the 13 weeks, season lift pass, all training and exam fees and shadowing experience and employment opportunities in the future with the Arinsal Snowboard School.

Option extras include early arrival so you get to spend Christmas and New Year away and an extended stay until the day the mountain closes...giving you a full winter away of nearly 18 weeks.

The BASI Level 2 season program has been so popular due to the low price, that we have started the same training for budding Ski Instructors. Click button below to be taken to our Snowsports Coach 13 Week Ski instructor Program.

3 Week

Instructor Program

The course is ideal for people who cannot attend our 13 week program due to work or other commitments and for those who feel ready for the BASI Level 2 but want the extra week of input and training prior to the exam.

This shorter 3 week option has a Level 2 preparation week prior to the 2 week exams. During this week we ride, train, teach and prepare you as much as possible for the following BASI exams. This essentially gives you 3 weeks to get up to the level required.

This 3 week option isn’t the easy way to pass. If you haven’t had a lot of mountain time then maybe consider our longer 13 week course. If you are pressed for time and can’t do the longer course, then prepare as much as you can in the UK and then use the week prior with us to train hard and ride hard.

Instructor Training

After successfully running our Level 2 training program for over 10 years, we decided to provide and avenue for our previous level 2 candidates and other BASI instructors to effectively train for this top level course.

The course will be run with a maximum of 4 students and will be run alongside our level 2 Program. We have made it a 3 month program so you get to stay with us for up to 3 months in resort. This gives all level 3 candidates a totally unique chance to not only receive riding training from the SBcoach crew but also to shadow and assist us with training the level 2 candidates. You will even have the chance to shadow the actual level 2 exams.

The course will not have any exams. It is a preparation course to get you more aware of what will be expected of your riding and teaching on the level 3. Just because you do this course does not mean you will pass the exam. We all know how hard this level is. This course is to prepare you both mentally and physically for what will be thrown at you in the tech and teach.

All of us at Snowboard Coach have taken and passed this course. As BASI examiners we are also qualified to assess the Level 3. We will do all we can to help you get through it.
