About Summit


About Summit



  • We insist on sound instruction being provided by all our instructors.
  • We also believe that a client booking tuition with Summit should expect more than just a good technical lesson.
  • A Summit instructor should be a teacher, motivator, friend and inspiration to each and every client. 

Therefore, every Summit instructor must not only be qualified, but also sociable, entertaining, intelligent, friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and cool!

looking for great instructors

As a British run school we require all our instructors to speak fluent English (although we also value an instructor’s ability to be able to teach in other languages) and all training is given in English. 

As Henry is a BASI Trainer and most of our team are qualified through this system, the training of the Summit team has a BASI focus.

Applicants should:

  • Hold an EU passport or the right to work in Switzerland
  • Have at least 1 or two seasons teaching experience.
    We look for instructors skiing at L3 standard with a minimum qualification of the BASI level 2 (or equivalent).
  • Be looking to train for and pass instructor exams.
    Be prepared to teach a wide variety of lessons to all types of clients.
  • Have an extremely strong customer focus.

what we teach

Our instructors all teach both private and group lessons. Although the more qualified instructors will be teaching the more technically advanced lessons, no instructors will be consistently teaching beginners or children. We try and make sure everyone teaches a wide range of lessons.

New team members will predominantly work during the high season and busy periods and train when it is quieter.

Competitive rates

We offer competitive pay rates with incentives when you are requested for lessons by clients.

Training with Summit

We are very proud of the training we provide to our instructors. Henry is a BASI trainer and heads up all the training we provide. We run a full week of training in early December. This will introduce you to the team and help prepare you for the season’s teaching.

Out of peak season, we will provide a programme of formal training. This training has a personal performance and teaching focus as well as some off-piste with the aim of making better instructors and preparing individuals to pass their technical, teaching and mountain safety exams.

Team Atmosphere

We love the fact that the Summit team is consistently one of the tightest groups in town. We regularly get everyone together for drinks, to eat or for a day on the hill.

If you want to find out more about this (or any other aspect of working for Summit), check out our team online, find them on social media and private message any of them to ask.
