THE EXCITEMENT IS BUILDING!
With just under two weeks to go now until our summer courses in Cervinia begin, we thought it would be a perfect time to show you the final video blog from last years courses up on Zermatt’s Plateau Rosa glacier. We regular talk about how good the snow can be during the summer months and here’s the proof. Powder in August! There’s still time to book your place on this years summer program. Go to our ‘book now’ page and you’ll be there soon!
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended our first Academy members meet ups in London and Manchester last week. We had two great nights where Academy members and non members had the chance to catch up and mix with other skiers and Academy course regulars. We will certainly be having more of these evenings in the near future so keep your eyes and ears open to find out where and when these will take place. In the meantime we hope to see you in Cervinia on our soon to begin summer courses!
For a limited time only we are offering anyone who books on one of our summer courses before June 14th a bundle of Academy merchandise which retails at £50, all for free! This is a one off chance to get your hands on some of our sought after products which include the following:

We have now finalised the dates for our Academy member’s meet up adding an extra date for friends in the north of England.
LONDON: On June 4th the team will be meeting in London atBroadway House on the Fulham Road from 7pm. The nearest station to this is Fulham Broadway which is just a short walk away.
MANCHESTER: On June 5th the Academy team are going to be meeting at Manchesters Malmaison Hotel Bar from 7pm. The hotel is placed conveniently across the road from Piccadilly station.
The idea is to have a social event with people we currently ski with and have skied with in past so we can all have a ski chat about how the season went for everybody, swap ideas for future trips, network a few of you guys together and have a few beers along the way.
If you would like to join us, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org so we know how many people to expect! We hope to see you there!
He may have been slightly uncomfortable with it and a little bit out of his usual surroundings but we have to say a massive well done and huge respect from all the Academy team and our members to the very brave Warren Smith for leaving himself wide open to over a million readers of ‘Hello Magazine.’
Even for what looks like such a personal photoshoot it’s great to see that the Academy uniform makes a strong appearance along with some great product placement for SCOTT Sports and Volkl Skis!
Good job Wozza, and a massive thank you to the lovely Melinda who we are so proud to have in the Academy family!
A MASSIVE congratulations to all our level 2 gap year students and our level 3 trainees who ALL passed on their final day of exams this season!
We are so so proud of all the guys! They all put such a huge amount of effort into their training throughout the winter and thoroughly deserve this moment! We have just released the dates for our Summer Gap course which will be running on the Zermatt glacier from the 5th of July 2014. It’s a great opportunity for students to receive the classic Academy style of coaching and gain their qualifications in time for the next approaching winter. Many summer gap year programs only offer a southern hemisphere option which with all things included becomes very costly. Not only is our program great value but it’s certainly a lot cheaper to get there! For details check our course finder.
To get a feel for what training towards Ski Instructor qualifications with the Academy is like please watch our Winter 2014 Gap year review video blog here.
Here in the Verbier we are well and truly welcoming Spring and all the goodness it brings! The valley is looking green and lush, and the mountain is in prime condition for skiing. The Pistes are in absolutely perfect condition and the Off Piste is providing some awesome corn like spring snow.
Next week we will be running our final set of Academy courses for the winter. Along with our classic 5 day course we are also running our Mogul specific course which has proved to be a massive hit with members over the winter. With the Easter break falling late in April, the lifts will be open well into May which means the Academy team will be available for Private coaching after our weekly courses have finished. Please email us at the email@example.com to find out availability
This weeks blog is a little bit different. Andy talks us through in detail what he’s been working on with his group and shows us a pretty dramatic change in the their performance!
