WHY VIVID?

Rob Nortonthe founder of Vivid Snowboarding and head coach has 18 years industry experience.   Rob is a current BASI Snowboarder examiner and holds the top British, Swiss and French snowboard licences.    Having examined BASI instructors for the last 12 years he knows what ingredients are needed to make world class instructors.     Having previously run snowboard schools and going on to set up Vivid Snowboarding in 2011, Rob has sifted through 100’s of CVs in his time.  He knows what is needed to help gain that all important first instructing job.

Rob Norton, “I have worked globally training and examining up and coming instructors and really feel the Vivid Snowboarding product is 100% snowboarder thought out.   Without wanting to sound too cheesey, it’s a snowboarders snowboard course.   From running a successful snowboard school in Verbier, I know what I’m looking for when employing an instructor.   This course is designed with that in mind.   We aim to make you a great snowboarder, awesome teacher and super employable in the industry.   We are a snowboard school doing snowboard training, we are not a generic gap provider.”

Our summer programmes will have you qualified and sending out your snowboard specific CV at the beginning of September, in time for all the schools hiring for the coming winter. If this isn’t what you’re after you can join one of our winter courses in Verbier, for a more classical seasonal experience.
We like to take an individual and personal approach to finding the right opportunities in the industry for each trainee.     All too often we see other providers tick the box of guaranteeing jobs that then don’t materialise.   We have second to none contacts across the globe in the industry, and we take the time to sit down with each individual and tailor our recommendations and hook ups to suit each persons’ aspirations and ambitions. We will also provide a digital video portfolio of your riding, not only to court prospective employers, but also as a momento of your time with us. Of course, if we come across a very gifted instructor, we like to snap them up to come and work for Vivid Snowboarding!

Vivid Snowboarding is an official business partner of BASI (British association of Snowsport Instructors) and therefore we are licensed to deliver and examine the BASI snowboarding product.
