How We Train
The Rookie Academy is just that ... an Academy dedicated to the craft of ski and snowboard instructing. The Rookie Academy is run by and filled with people for whom skiing and boarding is a life’s work.
Rookie Trainers are hand picked and our courses designed to help you get the most out of your time at the Academy. These practical, industry driven courses cover a comprehensive range of technical skills and teaching techniques. At the Academy expect to:
- Ski or board a lot! Rookies typically clock up 150,000 vertical meters of skiing over a 9 to 10 week course
- Learn the art of movement analysis and develop your eye for spotting good and bad technique in yourself and your students
- Improve your physical and snow-specific fitness and learn how to protect your most valuable asset (your body) by keeping yourself in the best physical condition for your on-snow career
- Develop your own network of snow-professionals as you become part of the Rookie Alumni
- A season in a true ski town
We earned and build our international reputation by producing a consistently high standard of instructors. Our record is unrivalled and every season we aim to keep it that way by bringing back the best instructors and developing our courses to be the most practical, in-depth and industry-appealing on the planet.Book your course
