About

Join one of our Anwarter ski instructor courses in Austria this winter. Become a highly qualified Level 2 Anwarter instructor before moving on to start your guaranteed job in an Austrian ski resort.

Our course is based in the stunning resort town of Kaprun (90 minutes from Salzburg). Kaprun is a hub for 3 local mountains.

We have three courses each season, beginning in November, January and March. The Nov course is 6 weeks, Jan is 5 weeks and March is 4 weeks.

The course is examined in German meaning that, for most people, you get to learn a new language on this course. Don't worry, 75% of applicants have never studied German and we have a 100% pass rate on the language element of the course.

If you are wanting to maximize your working time, we recommend taking part in one of the earlier courses to leave most of the season to work.

To be eligible you need to have at least 4 weeks ski experience and be eligible for an Austrian working holiday visa.

Highlights
  • Gaining a high level Anwarter ski instructor qualification
  • Learning a new language
  • Skiing everyday in some of the best snow conditions Europe has to offer
  • Being trained by some of the best instructors in Austria

Best 3 Months of my life

April 3, 2019
Olivia - Age 19 - Gap Year 2019

January course
(looking back, I wish I could have done the November course so I would have been out there longer - But January was great too)

I honestly cannot recommend this experience more!!!! (worth the money!)
It was - no exaggeration - the best 3 months of my life

Oyster worldwide were so helpful, I booked very late and they organised it all so quickly and easily for me.

---- All about the course (see below) ----

The Ski Instructor Academy (SIA) course:

-- Instructors - So much fun and brilliant teaching
-- Skiing - AMAZING, so much available.
AND you are given a ski pass for the whole season in the area where you do the course - so can go back and ski when you are done teaching (sofa surfing or get own accommodation).
-- Accommodation - Perfect for what you need. There was a variation - a big house with loads of people, or small apartments in one building and others.
-- German side - If you want to learn, you can learn lots. If you want to scrape by, it is easy enough.
-- People - Average ages 18-22, awesome people, from all over the world and lots from the UK.
-- Exam - Well prepared and feel ready when exam comes.
-- Aprés - always good :)

Teaching after the course:
Different places to pick - Zell am See, St Anton, Salbach, and more

I went to St Anton. Loads of young people working there. Fun teaching. Great Skiing and brill aprés.

Wish I could have stayed till the end of the season
Was so sad to leave
