11 Week - Professional Snowboard Instructor

AKA: The Full Enchilada!

YES offers three 11 week courses throughout the 2019/2020 season. To view prices and accommodation options scoll to the bottom of the page!

Overview

This ultimate Instructor course is designed for those looking for a professional edge. The Full Enchilada will take you through the necessary training in order for you to gain your CASI Level 1 & 2 certification. The Canadian Association for Snowboard Instructors (CASI) Level 2 certifies you to teach snowboarders up to the advanced sliding turn and intermediate carving level. You will learn how to assess and develop riders in various teaching and tactics. Program includes technical seminar, on-going assessment of your riding progress, weekly fun video (see yourself on the big screen) and a written personalized evaluation each week from one of our qualified Level 4 Pros. You will also participate in our Snow park training clinic which will cover the progression to riding switch, rails, jumps and even half pipe and if you’re up for the challenge you may choose to add the CASI Park instructor 1 exam to your list of achievements.

You will also participate in the AST 1 & AST Advanced Avalanche awareness courses which we believe is a necessity for anyone adventuring in the mountains during the winter. This is a course for those wishing to acquire appropriate entry level safety skills, proper instruction in uphill skinning techniques, assessing mountain environments and of course, the fun of powder snow boarding. Learning outcomes for the AST level 1 certificate are to develop understanding of winter hazards with increased confidence in decision making in avalanche terrain.

Overall, the professional 11 week program will improve your interpersonal skills, make you a better communicator and increase your technical knowledge as you advance your own riding to new heights!

What Level of rider do I need to be? As long as you are linking turns on a blue run (low intermediate) we can accept you on the course and turn you into a shredding master!
