Inside Out Skiing is a unique ski school with a new concept in ski teaching offering "Ski coaching all year round"
We operate all year round at London's indoor snowdome, the Snow Centre in Hemel Hempstead and in a range of resorts in the Alps. We offer skills-based coaching and year-round development of your skiing using the same team of ski coaches. With regular coaching our clients see significant progress in their skiing, developing a wider set of skills and much greater confidence to ski all the mountain.
Inside Out Skiing - A new concept in ski teaching
Many of our clients train with us on a regular basis, so coaching sessions at the indoor snowdomes and in the Alps are very sociable events. With regular coaching our clients see significant progress in their skiing, developing a wider set of skills and much greater confidence to ski all the mountain. We were recently interviewed by online ski news website PlanetSki who described Inside Out Skiing as a new concept in ski teaching. Check out a video interview which describes what we're all about.
Qualifications
The ski coaches who work for Inside Out Skiing have trained and qualified through the British Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI) which recognised by the International Ski Instructors Association (ISIA). We are primarily alpine skiing instructors, which licenses us to teach skiing both on and off piste. We are all also qualified as Alpine Development Coaches, which is focused on providing regular, long term coaching to assist skiers in developing their general skiing skills as well as the tools to help junior ski racers in improving their racing technique. We have all taken additional qualifications such as snowboard instructing, telemark or adaptive skiing which has given us a deeper understanding of coaching snowsports.

Scott Pleva
Scott started skiing at 28, had his first lesson at 41 and wishes he had started earlier on both! After a career of running manufacturing and technology businesses he found that the smiles he got from teaching skiers was much more satisfying than his "real" job. He decided to pursue ski coaching as a full time role and founded Inside Out Skiing to assist people in developing a lifelong love for skiing. He was the head coach for under 12's at the Hemel ski race club from 2009-14 and has coached several young ski racing athletes who went on to be selected for the British national ski team.
