BASS Pro 2

Our successful Pro 2 Program has been created as the ideal introduction to the BASI alpine qualification pathway.

The Pro 2 is designed to give you the knowledge, skill and precision required to develop from recreational skier to professional ski instructor and to support continued professional development for BASI level 1 members.

The Program consists of 141 hours with your own team coaches, plus 70 hours of ski school experience with the BASS teaching team. In addition, you will need to be available for structured practice sessions with your team which, are designed to help you consolidate learning between coaching sessions.

The Pro 2 Programme is modular and can include the BASI Level 1 and 2 courses as separate modules.

The program can be tailored to your needs and many team members have joined us simply to improve their own skiing without taking BASI courses or have opted to take the BASI level 1 course later in the season.
