Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

BASI school snow experience?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hello, couldn't find an answer to this online, hopefully somebody knows since BASI is nog getting back to me on this...
For the 35h hours of experience, does it matter if you shadow a ski or snowboard teacher? I'm really hoping these both count Smile and if i'm missing a few hours, could I just get some lessons as well? Does that count as well?
Thanks! Jan

@Jan.nevejans, IMHO you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not shadowing a teacher in your own discipline for the 35 hrs.

thanks for your honest reply, but I'm living in a tiny ski resort in switzerland and there won't enough snowboard lessons tot shadow unfortunatly. And I'm getting my my ski level one and snowboard level 2 next season while working (an ea-kind of internship) so I'll have plenty of opportunity to shadow snowboard teachers there. (You are BTW allowed to het your 35 jours behind réception for exemple si don't see how that would help as well)
Regards Jan

@Jan.nevejans, in reality BASI won’t care what it is as long as someone has signed the box on the sheet and the head of the ski school has signed it at the end. A lot of the gap programmes seem to have a very loose interpretation on “shadowing” - I watched a group get hours for attending a guest welcome meeting once. At least shadowing a ski lesson you can still get experience of things like group management and terrain selection. Just do as many snowboard as you can.

@Jan.nevejans, The key words are "Snowsport experience" which is translated as any snowsport related activity. So a mix of shadowing on skis or boards, office working (in a snowsports environment), like taking bookings and managing customers, taking part in management activities, setting up a class in a training environment. Pretty much anything really. Your snowport manager/instructor should be aware of the requirement.
