4 Week Snow Sports Instructor Course
We offer both the skiing CSIA Level 1 and snowboarding CASI Level 1 courses in Whistler throughout the winter season. Both courses include all exam fees, training and preparation as well as the Avalanche Skills Training (AST) Level 1. Experience what it is like to live as a snow sports instructor in this fantastic world class resort.
The course is open to skiers and snowboarders who are able to handle blue runs and who are now looking to improve their skills and advance professionally. This course starts in either November, January, February or March. If you take the November course, you may have the opportunity to find work in Canada during the same season thereafter (you will need a work permit for this).
