BASI Ski Instructor Course
August 29th 2014
I have just spent the last 5 days in a fridge in Tamworth - otherwise known as the Snowdome!  It was the UK's first ever indoor ski slope using artificial snow and it is only 11 miles from home; a pleasant journey that takes me through the countryside, past vineyards (yes, honestly).  This is where my racing career began, 6 years ago, so it is quite apt that I did the course at the Snowdome.

I passed level 1 of the BASI Ski Instructor courses so after 34 hours of "shadowing" a qualified ski instructor I, too, will be qualified to teach beginners how to ski!

I don't intend to make a career out of being a ski instructor but I thought the course would give me an insight into the sport from a different perspective.  It will also enable me to earn some pocket money instructing in the evenings/weekends when I am at home.  I'm actually looking forward to it!
