What Skis do I need for a Ski Instructor Course?
A general rule of thumb for instructor courses is below 75! By this we mean buy a pair of ski's with a sidecut of below 75mm. For those not in the 'sidecut' know, the sidecut is the width of the ski under foot. Instructor courses focus on piste performance – short turns, long turns, bumps and variables. A ski with a sidecut under 75mm is automatically boosting your potential to be able to ski to the required level. Investing in a instructor course is a big decision, so back yourself to carry on making good decisions.
A great example of a good ski for skiinstructor courses is the 2013/14 HEAD iSuperhape Magnum, featured above. The magnums will help you glide through the Level 1 and 2 exams and shall allow you to mximise improvment. Basecamp have teamed up with HEAD to offer Basecamper's 30% off RRP for iSupershape Magnums and Speeds. These are available directly from Basecamp so get in touch for more information:
