For dedicated snow lovers, the summer can simply be a long and boring wait for the first signs of fresh snow to come around again between ski seasons.
NO MORE! Welcome to our Argentina Ski Camps!
SIA’s world class coaches will help identify your strengths and weaknesses, building and overcoming them and any obstacles you face when skiing in a relaxed and fun coaching camp. Designed for those who want to take their skiing to a higher level, build your confidence, and improve your technical ability, so you can tackle those tricky black runs, icy conditions, powder, moguls and anything else the mountain can throw at you! In the SIA Argentina ski camp, we will help to perfect your position, improve balance and add in dynamics to help you become an all round skier. Perfect for skiing enthusiasts looking for a new adventure.
Our Argentina Ski Camp is also ideal for instructors preparing for high level ski qualifications such as Landes 1 & 2, BASI 3, CSIA 3 & 4 & NZSIA 3 & 4, offering coaching for dynamic short turns, fast race carving, perfecting mogul skiing and shredding deep powder.
Our Argentina Ski Camp is a high quality, action packed adventure from start to finish, without compromise. Awesome destination, luxury accommodation, world class coaching and great company to enjoy it with!
The Dual Course was awesome. I made some great friends, great memories and had the best winter ever. I earned a fantastic qualification which I used all season teaching skiing and snowboarding in Austria and I have used it to teach in California too! The ski schools really do value the teaching skills and training you receive from Ski Instructor Academy
In my opinion SIA is your only choice to become a ski instructor. For me, it was difficult to chose between all the different schools but I have never regretted the decision to choose SIA. The course was very well planned, organised and worth every dollar I paid for it.
Absolutely life changing! When I first arrived I was quite unsure of what to expect, coming from a small town in the UK and feeling really nervous. The course exceeded anything I could of ever dreamed of; meeting what are now my best friends and spending 3 months living the ski dream!
“What a great experience, the best coaches I’ve ever had! Would advise any friends and family to do it, also the best value for money of all the options I researched. Sehr gut!”
Our training team consists of highly qualified and experienced coaches. They will become your mentor, adviser and friend.

2021/22 will be the first season post-Brexit and will add some red tape to what would historically have been a normal season for students from the UK. To work anywhere in the world now, incl. Europe, Brits will need a visa or permit to work. The Authorities here in Austria have said that they plan to have a ‘seasonnaire permit’ in place at some point in the future to allow workers short-term access to the employment market during the winter season.
Whilst this is potentially great news, this looks unlikely to be in place for the 2021/22 winter season and they haven’t released any further details on this as yet so it still leaves a little uncertainty on what will be required from UK nationals working in Austria.
(latest update: 19th August 2021)
You must be a minimum of 16 years old before you arrive into resort on our Austrian Courses.
You must be a minimum of 18 years old before you arrive in resort for our Canadian or Argentinian Courses (unless parental consent is obtained).
You must be a minimum of 18 years old to join any of our courses or internships which rely on a working holiday visa or work permit.
Although SIA courses are amongst the largest in the World, we manage to maintain very intimate training groups of between 4 and 8, but with no more than 8:1 students per trainer in Austria, Argentina and France and 10:1 in Canada. This allows us to match similar ability levels per group and means no student should ever feel as if they are falling behind, or being held back because of the group they are in.
We have various options for accommodation on our courses, all of which are very comfortable. We use a combination of shared apartments, houses and chalets. There are options to to include a single room, half board meals or both! (subject to availability and supplement). See our Accommodation page for more details on your options.
YES! As an instructor, ski schools will offer you subsidised staff housing as part of your employment contract. This is generally basic living, but a fun and very social environment with your fellow instructors and not to mention a very cheap way of living in a ski resort, with most ski schools only charging between €4 and €10 per day.
Note: If your course does not include a Job Guarantee or you do not wish to take up your position then accommodation will only be included during your course dates.
Sure! We love it when friends come together and share this amazing experience – after all sharing is caring! We can make sure you live together and also work in the same ski school together too so you can enjoy the time and make memories forever… just be sure to let us know who you’re travelling with.
