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.
BASI’s current status and credibility has been gained through a combination of international diplomacy and continuously developing our teaching and technical models based on the observations and knowledge we have harvested, adapted and developed from the international arena. This process began back at Interski 1971 when BASI were first invited to send a demonstration team to the World Interski Congress 1971 in Garmisch Partenkirchen.
World Interski Congress is a major international event where BASI get the opportunity to present who we are and what we do, gaining recognition for our qualifications and building a global network of contacts that help us provide work opportunities for our membership.
