Best Value Professional Ski Instructor Training Courses with Sunshine World



  *   EXPERIENCED PROS: We are owned and run entirely by internationally qualified and highly experienced ski and snowboard pros. Our Head Coach, Alan Garcia, sponsored by 3Ryde, has been a qualified full time pro since January 2001.

  *  EXCEPTIONAL PASS RATE: Since 2005 – Over 18 winter seasons- our pass rate has never dropped below 95% for all exams taken by people training with us on our 10 week or longer courses with full attendance. We train towards all the major recognised bodies (EAPSI, CASI, BASI, CSIA, NZSIA, SBINZ) and have experience in most of the globally recognised systems (including the European, French, Austrian, British, Italian, Polish, Canadian, Slovakian, US, New Zealand, Australian and Swiss National systems)

  *  THE MOST FUN: We have more FUN than can possibly be imagined. We train hard and well but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Train hard, play harder- ALL the time 😉 Check out our videos and photos on our gallery and on our Facebook page to glimpse what you could be doing this season.

*  PERFECT FOR YOU: We train ANYONE of any experience level. We have the results too. So far more than 70 people have trained with us to pass their official ski instructor exams on just our 10 week course! We now even have a growing list of past trainees who have started their own ski holiday companies around the world and many more working as professional ski instructors for reputable ski schools. We cut out all the nonsense to just get to the point and help YOU be as good as you can be as quickly and effectively as possible. If you want to be pushed, we’ll push you. If you want to chill, have fun, sit back and be like Bob Marley, no worries. Tell us what your goals are and we’ll make them happen together.

Our prices are far lower than every other instructor course out there for a number of reasons:

  1. PASSIONATE PROS: We are not greedy and genuinely LOVE training up new ski and snowboard pros so much that we’d happily do it for free forever.
  2. QUALITY CHALETS: We have access to fantastic chalets with all mod cons in the heart of the world class ski resort, Zakopane.
  3. OUR OWN TRAVEL COMPANY: We also own our own international, licensed tour operator: so we get the best rates in town for everything from transport to lift passes and ski and snowboard gear.
  4. POLAND IS THE BEST VALUE: We’re based in Poland which is VERY good value for everything from eating out in quality restaurants to drinks in classy, modern clubs.

To be honest whatever I try to put into words to explain how unbelievable The Sunshine World Experience is, it just won’t do it justice…it is literally that good!

I had pretty high expectations before I came here anyway having had lots of discussions with the supremo of Sunshine World Alan Garcia, but I could never have imagined that it would far exceed them. I came to Poland for a 10 week course with the Sunshine World Academy Team training to be a fully qualified Ski Instructor, where I would be taking my exams in my last weeks of the course. Arriving somewhere new and meeting people for the first time is always slightly daunting and uncomfortable, but never before have I experienced the sensational atmosphere within such a large group of people. All the Pro Team and Academy which adds up to around 25 people in total share together a large chalet in a beautiful part of Zakopane, and within minutes of my arrival I had been greeted over enthusiastically by everyone and then invited out for a drink at the local bar. Already after only being here for a day I felt part of the team, and in the following days the bonds grew making it seem as if I had known these guys all my life!

Having only ever done 6 hours of skiing before I arrived on the team it was fair to say I was a very inexperienced Beginner, but this didn’t seem to faze or worry Alan and the Pro team at all and it was soon clear why. Alan and the Pro Team are such committed individuals to helping the Academy students improve and learn it’s truly amazing, and getting to shadow and watch them work is just inspirational. Within a week of arriving I was comfortably going down red runs and getting down the Black runs without too much difficulty while being taught some really advanced techniques such as carving, pole planting and short radius heel turns. For me this was just unbelievable, I could have never imagined in my wildest dream I would have progressed so quickly. And the only explanation I can give is because of Sunshine World and its superb work ethos, ethic and attitude…plus the fact that fact everyone on the team especially Alan are just the coolest most awesome dudes you will ever meet.
