For sports persons & skiers who have spent between 6 and 12 weeks on the slopes and are comfortable on most black runs. If you want to spend a winter season training hard and developing your skiing in all-terrain then this could be the perfect course for you.

  • Technical training

  • All-terrain / Off-Piste skiing

  • Mountain Safety

  • Snowboarding and Slalom initiations

This course offers the foundation or stepping stone to our "Test Technique" training course. 

If you have approximately 12+ weeks of skiing experience and you are passionate about sport & skiing - considering or already pursuing a career as a ski instructor in France or elsewhere in Europe then you may already appreciate that the technical demands are high.

  • Slalom Race Training

  • Technical Skiing

  • Free-Ride off-piste

The “Test Technique" slalom ski racing exam is a pre-requisite to becoming a trainee instructor in any French ski school, regardless of nationality.

We are the foundation training that you will need to prepare yourself for any ski qualifications in Europe & the rest of the world.


The Eurotest, or Speed Test as it was formally known, is a Giant Slalom ski racing examination that is a compulsory element of all European ski instructing diplomas. 

We are an official Race Training Federation. We will help you to pass this exam!

The Eurotest ski qualification is also required by international instructors from outside the EU to formally equivalate their existing qualification.

For Example: If you are British Level 3 + then this is the course for you. If you are BASI 1&2 then we would start you in Test Technique training.
