Why Choose BASS Pro Training?

BASS Pro is the only BASI Business Partner in the Portes du Soleil and as such, is the only trusted partner licensed to run BASI level 1, 2 and 3 technical and teaching courses in Morzine / Avoriaz.

We are the training arm of the BASS Morzine & Les Gets, set up in 1999, the original British Ski School. Your BASS Pro coaches are all full-time ski teachers with decades of experience teaching all levels of recreational skier, from 3 yrs to 83yrs old.

The BASS Pro coaches have current experience running all levels of BASI course, from level 1 to 4, both technical and teaching modules. Members of the BASS Pro team are also members of the BASI Interski Team and the BASI National Education Team, the trainers who train the trainers and develop BASI course content into the future.

Our philosophy is that learning is a lifelong experience that is enriched by a broad spectrum of experiences. Teaching and learning are two sides of the same coin, as you learn to be a better skier, you are experiencing state of the art teaching techniques which you can share with your own learners. The more you learn about yourself as a learner, the more independence you gain in dictating your future pathway.

We believe that learning is collaborative with you at the centre of your own development. Learning is best with coaches you trust, in an environment where you feel safe to question, explore, discover and challenge your limits.
