Interski scholarship winners
Each winter, Interski instructors are on the look out for talented youngsters. Their brief is to assess performance, personality and adaptability and, where these criteria are met, a video is taken and sent to the Snowsport School Manager. Approximately 30 of these (mostly) 16-18 year olds are then invited to a day's intensive training in the UK where they are assessed, and a final shortlist of 10 gifted scholars is drawn up.
This year, two of our pupils, Jess Pugh and Ben Dugan were selected for the scholarship - out of 1500 applicants - and having completed 3 weeks intensive training in Aosta, Italy, skiing for around 7 hours each day, they have been awarded their BASI Level 1 and 2 and are now fully qualified ski instructors.
