Why are ski instructor levels not the same all around the world with Snow Camps Europe
Why are ski instructor levels not the same all around the world?  In this episode of the Inside Edge podcast, we answer a viewer question and try to explain why it is hard to compare one level 1 qualification with other different nations and different ski associations have different criteria and it can be very hard to understand if your qualification is or is not on the same level. There is also an issue with some qualifications that may well be recognised around the world but they may not be as accepted as others from other nations. We try to simplify this confusing topic.  For more information on becoming a ski teacher or our ski camps in Kaprun Austria visit www.snowcampseu.com

Is Skiing The New Golf With Snow Camps Europe and SIA Austria
Is Skiing The New Golf With Snow Camps Europe and SIA Austria   In this podcast, we ask. Is Skiing The New Golf With Snow Camps Europe and SIA Austria? There are many similarities between skiing and golf we talk over our thoughts on whether skiing is the new golf. In golf, we see equipment that claims to make you a better player by enabling you to drive the ball further in skiing we have skis that mean you're able to make the perfect turn. One thing for sure that is different is golfers will train on the driving range but and take lessons from a golf pro even though they have been playing for many years the same is not typical in skiing as once people can make a basic turn they give up on lessons and never get to progress. So is skiing the new golf?
