“Basecamp provided the most amazing experience this year. I have made so many lifelong friends and my snowboarding has improved ridiculously when I compare to the beginning of the season. The coaching we received was world class and I am so excited to begin instructing! I would recommend Basecamp to anyone wanting to become an international instructor, improve their riding, or looking for a challenging, exciting and awesome gap year adventure! Thank you so much Basecamp!”

“An awesome way to gain a qualification and skills on a gap year/career break! I qualified as an instructor, had 11-weeks of top notch training, lived in one of the most beautiful countries in the world and had three months of insane fun with a great bunch of people. This course is one of, if not the, best experiences of my life.

I can’t recommend this course enough to anyone looking for a worthwhile way to spend their gap year or for someone who wants to get away from the grind of their job on a career break.”

“Basecamp was an unreal experience. A fantastic training program which sent me on my way to a new career. Awesome training throughout the season, which lead to huge improvement on my technical and teaching within skiing. Personal highlight – heli-skiing with the instructors at the end of the program.”

“Best experience of my life!

The 11 week snowboard program with basecamp was definitely the best decision, we had great instructors who really knew what they were talking about. I have grown very much as a person and as a snowboarder the basecamp course really helped me with that!”
