The Ski and Snowboard Instructor Training Experts since 1992

At the Rookie Academy we continually strive to offer the ultimate ski and snowboard training experience, you will not find a more talented and experienced team of trainers anywhere in the world.

Simply, we love skiing or riding and training others to do the same.

So check out our website for all the details and hopefully we’ll see you on the snow at Treble Cone – Wanaka – New Zealand, the best training ground in the Southern Hemisphere.

These are unprecedented times and like everyone, we’ve been making plans for the potential impact COVID-19 may have on Winter 2020,

The first decision we have made is to delay the start of all of our courses until the 25th July to give us all some more time to understand the medium term impacts of COVID-19.

We’ll be in touch as we get more clarity on what our Wanaka winter will look like – and you’ll be the first to know!

Meantime, we wish you all the best as we power through this tough time. Stay safe and look after each other.
