Hi all, I'm 21 and have just decided to leave University to pursue my passion for skiing. At the moment I only have a very basic qualification so the first thing I need to do is get on the professional coaching ladder. I am planning on going through the BASI system and (as is the case with all ski quals it would seem) it's very expensive. I would love to hear how anyone who has managed to get to the top of the instructing world did it. was it a case of working the winter instructing, gaining on snow experience and then holding down some kind of 9-5 to get the money to pay for the next quali or are there any scholarship type orgrammes out there etc etc...any replies would be much appreciated!
