Do I need to be a good skier to go on a Gap course?

In one word, NO! We can cater for a large range of abilities since there are many groups on the course. Because of this, if you are already a good skier your level will be pushed with other good skiers around you. Our trainers train and assess to the highest levels in BASI so there is no ceiling to your improvement. Similarly if you are an inexperienced skier or rider you will be in a group with similar abilities so your needs will be met in this respect too. However if you are not sure if your novice abilities meet the basic standard, our trainers are really happy to chat with you and work out what course is right for you, and what can you do to improve prior to the course. We find if you are low on ability but high on fitness you progress exponentially against those more skilled but less agile. Everyone is different, call us on 0870 760 7360 for more information. If you choose option 3, you can speak directly to a BASI Trainer who will happily discuss the basic skiing ability and more.... course content, accommodation, what to do with your qualifications, how to find work and answer any questions you may have about the course or skiing and snowboarding in general.
