SUBSIDISED COURSES & TRAINING
COURSES FOR INSTRUCTORS AND TEACHERS
Legislation regarding outdoor activities has become increasingly demanding. Most party leaders are bound by guidelines concerning ski snowboard tuition/guiding provided by their party members. We are able to help to organise a variety of subsidised courses, which give individuals the opportunity to de-velop a range of mountain skills.
Courses organised throughout the year include:
- Snowsport Scotland Alpine Ski Leader
- Mountain related first aid
- PSIA Ski Instructor courses Levels 1-3
- Revalidation for Snowboard Scotland and BASI Awards
- Personal Performance Courses
- Resort familiarisation weeks
- Trainee ski tutor guide weeks
- Ski tutor guide residential training week
- In service training days
We should be happy to sponsor the full amount of a place on a Snowsport Scotland Alpine Ski Leader course to any party leader booking their first ski tour with

Ski Astons is committed to helping individuals gain any snowsport qualification.
With an increasing demand for teachers to carry respective licences, all of our courses are offered at subsidised rates to those party leaders involved with their own school ski courses.
Half price & free places are available with our ASL and PSIA courses to those enrolling their group with the Ski Astons winter school programme. These apply to those carrying bookings into the 2020 / 2021 season if a 2020 booking already exists.
Assisted places for Ski Instructor courses are also offered to those offering their services to the Ski Astons winter programme following qualification. Commitment to full seasons in this instance is not a requirement and occasional weeks are offered.
