Piste 2 Profession Gap Year Courses

At Powder Byrne we are truly proud of our ski history and have a “nothing is too much trouble” approach towards everything we focus on. We have been providing luxury ski holidays for over 30 years and have trained thousands of skiers in the process, all proud to wear the coveted red jacket. It is from this experience that "Piste 2 Profession" or P2P, was born.

Our aim is to deliver ski courses that are designed to give those attending the edge in their chosen field, whether that is a BASI ski instructor qualification, freestyle ski course or our Ultimate Ski Season. Our 18 week winter programme combines a multitude of ski industry disciplines, created to challenge you both on and off the slopes, resulting in a lifetime experience you will never forget!


Learn From the Professionals

All of our courses are delivered by highly trained professionals, and follow a rewarding programme that raises the industry bar. Like our holidays we believe that if you are going to do something then do it to the best of your abilities… gaining a qualification with Powder Byrne will give you the confidence required to achieve high standards in your chosen field.

"All in all, it’s a crash course in life and, more specifically life in the mountains. It’s got to be one of the most holistic and vocational gap year programmes I’ve ever come across, particularly in the ski industry. If it had been around when I was planning my ski seasons, I would have been there like a shot.” - Gabriella le Breton, Travel Writer and Journalist
