Olivia - Age 19 - Gap Year 2019
(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
