Surely there is no better way to do summer than spending six awesome weeks training as an instructor in Argentina? With the Patagonian Lakes and Andes Mountains as the backdrop, you can’t imagine a more beautiful place to enjoy your gap year or sabbatical.

This six week once-in-a-lifetime experience will deliver world class training. You will benefit from universally-recognised level 1 & 2 Austrian qualifications and complete your Argentina ski or snowboard instructor course in a truly amazing location. Cerro Catedral with a skiable area of 120km is one of the largest ski centers in South America. The magnificent view of the Naheul Huapi lake dominates the backdrop from the 2100m summit. The average snowfall is 300cm per season, promoting incredible on and off-piste possibilities…

Welcome to the only Austrian instructor course in the Southern Hemisphere!

You will have the advantage of fabulous lakeside hotel accommodation based in the centre of the lively town where the best food, wines, bars and night life can be found. The Argentinian steaks are second to none, and the low-prices are great for those travelling on a budget. Some of the biggest names in clubbing are prevalent in Bariloche, offering some of the greatest aprés ski in the world.

Most importantly, you will be taking part in the only Southern Hemisphere Austrian qualification course in the world! This Argentina ski course offers huge savings over other qualifications, yet you will come out with a higher and more recognised qualification. Thanks to this, you will walk through the ski school door ahead of any other applicant on their first season.

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!”

Henry, UK

The course was outstanding, the teaching level was unbeatable, the location was superb and the instructors and people that are part of the SIA team are remarkable… I wish I could do it all over again!


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.
