4 Week Snow Sports Instructor Courses

You are given the amazing opportunity to gain your CSIA/CASI Level 1 and AST (Avalanche Skills Training) 1 ski or snowboard instructor qualifications, and experience what it is like to live as a snow sports instructor in this fantastic world class resort.

You will be learning from fully qualified Level 4 instructors who are considered some of the best teachers in the world. Whistler is a fantastic place to spend a month and there is plenty to do with lots of like-minded people.

We have been working with Whistler Blackcomb since 2000 and are now very excited to be able to offer this course.  It 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 is run at the beginning of the season so there is also an opportunity to find work in Canada during the same season thereafter.

For the ski programme you will cover:

CSIA Level 1 course and examination
CSIA Teaching Children Module
Recreational avalanche course – AST 1

For the snowboarding programme you will cover:

CASI Level 1 course and examination
Recreational avalanche course – AST 1

The purpose of the course is to develop your skills so you do not need to be at an incredibly high standard.

Alongside your ski or snowboard training, you will also be able to gain valuable skills in customer service and communications. The staff will train you in injury prevention, equipment tuning and boot fitting.

All participants will be given a choice of comfortable and centrally located accommodation options in the form of shared rooms in spacious chalets. Single accommodation is available, but limited. All chalets offer a high standard of living with great communal areas. Some rooms include balconies.

There is a choice of catered or self-catered accommodation. If you opt for catered then you are provided with 6 continental breakfasts and 6 dinners per week which are all prepared by your personal chalet host. Those opting for self catered will get access to a fully equipped kitchen.
