(so mum and dad are happy too!). Interested candidates should - Check out our video to see and hear what its all about at the following link to get a feel for the program. At that same link they will also be able to register their interest to receive one of our famous instructor starter kits which is full of insider tips, planners and goodies that provide a head-start no matter when or where they head to the snow. But make sure they don’t miss out because we only have limited places left. Yes, due to demand these program places are going fast. I have more information sent to me if you want to follow this up.
