Not only do you learn to become a professional ski instructor, but you also train for your Avalanche Skills Training Level 1 and 2 in the beautiful Whistler Blackcomb backcountry.

We have course start dates in late November, mid January and mid February each season. The February course also includes the BASI Level 2 qualification.

Tell me more…
This 11 week course enables you to achieve your Level 1 and 2 CSIA ski qualification, AST Level 1 and 2, CADS Level 1, Snow Park Training and BASI Level 2 (Feb course only).

You will learn to be confident on all blue runs and black runs and be a pro after 11 weeks.
The BASI Level 2 is available for skiers enrolled on the February course. NB This part of the course takes place at the same time as the AST 2 and CADS training so you will not take part in those elements.

Alongside the many qualifications that you will gain, you will also be trained by your instructors in the following areas:
Customer Service
Communications
Injury prevention
Equipment tuning
Boot fitting

Living in Whistler is an incredible way to spend 11 weeks. There is plenty to do and the course will provide you with the skills to begin your journey to becoming a snow sports pro. Ski for 11 weeks, meet like-minded friends, enjoy a great social life and live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

How much does it cost?
11 week course costs from £6895 (Feb course sharing a room with three others and self-catered).
