Becoming a Ski Club Leader is the perfect way to get more time on the slopes over a season and meet loads of fantastic people at the same time. The course itself is focused on improving your technique, learning mountain safety, and leading a group, and is a great course to do in its own right. Ski Club Leaders ski all day, every day, taking our members to the best places on the mountain.
Leading Ski Club Members
As trained volunteers, Leaders offer their time to Ski Club members, introducing some of the UK’s most dedicated snow fans to the freshest powder, the quietest slopes and the best times on snow.
And it all takes place in many of the top ski resorts across Europe and North America.
Leading slots are typically 2-3 weeks long, making it easy to fit in time in the mountains around other commitments. Trained Leaders can also go on to lead Ski Club Freshtracks holidays, which range from long weekends to extended trips.
Leading involves producing a weekly six-day ski and snowboard programme to appeal to all standards (except complete beginners) allowing Ski Club members to join others of a similar ability and get the most from their time on the mountain.
Leaders also host a social hour every evening of the weekly programme, which is an opportunity to get together with members back in resort and continue the social atmosphere generated on the slopes.
With their valuable first-hand knowledge, Leaders produce daily snow reports for skiclub.co.uk detailing the latest conditions and, as the Ski Club’s eyes on the ground in resort, are also welcome to contribute photos and news items.
The Ski Club hosts a variety of events in the mountains and back in the UK and Leaders are encouraged to get involved. There are also plenty of opportunities to catch up with fellow Leaders and members at parties including pre and post-season catch-ups.
