Alpine Ski Leader Course (ASL)
Alpine Ski Leader Course
The Alpine Ski Leader qualification is widely recognised by Local Authorities in Scotland as the most appropriate award for skiers taking sole charge of groups in the mountain environment. The award covers a range of responsibilities including planning, organising, supervising, leading and teaching. The ASL award is valid in the mountains and also on dry slopes and indoor snow slopes. The three key elements are:
- Technical skiing
Further information can be found on the Snowsport Scotland website.
- Transport from Geneva airport to resort
- 7 nights 3* half-board accommodation - twin (occasionally triple) share
- 6 day lift pass
- Winter sports insurance
- Lunch vouchers for use on mountain
- Ski and boot hire, if required
- Course booklets
Please note that you will need to make your own arrangements to get to Geneva airport for collection. Please aim to arrive as close to midday as possible. When booking your return flights, please be aware that the course may not be completed until 18.00 hrs on the last day. As a result, we have included 7 nights accommodation but will offer a £30 discount if you are able to get a late flight back on the day the course finishes (ie, only staying 6 nights).
nb: Registration fees with Snowsport Scotland are payable directly and MUST be done pre-course (current cost is £50) - see below for registration form.
Course is subject to viable numbers of candidates. A maximum of 10 places are available. Accommodation is based on twin (sometimes triple, depending on group composition) occupancy. The course will be run by Drew Michie, a highly acclaimed Snowsport Scotland tutor. Attendance of a one-day Refresher course is required once every three years.
- Candidates MUST register with Snowsport Scotland prior to the course. The cost is £50
- Participants must be at least 18 years of age
- They must be able to ski basic parallel on groomed red slopes (showing good posture and control), use carving skis and have at least 20 days on-snow experience
- Understand all levels of the UK awards and be able to perform many of the activities up to Level 7 (please refer to www.snowsportscotland.org for further details)
- Before the full award is issued, a First Aid certificate (minimum 14 hour and HSE approved) must be sent to Snowsport Scotland
- Candidates will also be required to complete a 3 hour Safeguarding & Protecting Children Workshop before the full award is issued.
In addition, as part of our promotional effort, Interski can help as follows:
- If your school has never travelled with Interski and subsequently books a group for the first time with Interski, we will refund 50% of the cost of the SBL against your first trip. This assumes successful completion of the course and a minimum of 35 full paying passengers per trip. On your third consecutive trip, you will be entitled to Interski plus! status and the many benefits this brings.
- Interski plus! clients will receive a £250 discount on the cost of an ASL course
