Interski International was founded in Arlberg (Austria) in 1951 and every 4 years organises the biggest Snowsport Congress in the world. The Interski congress exists for the specific purpose of sharing knowledge and understanding of snows port teaching methodologies and techniques among Interski’s associated nations.
In the beginning, it was made up of only alpine countries, today it is made up of 37 nations, including Great Britain, represented by BASI.
The Interski Congress in 2015 was in Argentina and hosted by the ‘Argentine Association of Ski and Snowboard Instructors’.
During each Congress, delegations including their demonstration teams participate in on slope work shops and demonstrations as well as off slope lectures and meetings. Along with the delegate nations that attend, thousands of interested people follow the congress including; specialised media and producers of material concerning the snowsports industry. BASI plan to keep Members informed and involved as we move through the preparation phase into the Congress itself using social media and the web site.

Jaz Lamb, Rupert Goldring, Paul Garner, Giles Lewis, Craig Robinson, James Lister, Lynn Sharp, Amanda Pirie, James Bennett, Jas Bruce, Becci Malthouse, Lesley Page and Rupert Tildesley
