Annika Goldman, USA – Feb 2019
I am not over exaggerating when I say that my seven weeks in Whistler with YES were some of the best weeks of my life. If you are even slightly considering this program… I promise that you will LOVE IT. I walked into YES not even that enthusiastic about skiing and now… well I’m writing this review in Australia because I’m skipping USA summer to be a ski instructor here.
So yeah… you could say YES Didn’t just make me better, but also much more passionate about skiing. Beyond preparing you extremely well for the instructor exams, YES gives you a loving and wildly fun family. I’ve never laughed as hard, smiled as much, or had as much fun as I did with YES on Whistler mountain and in the village. You’ll never be bored. Do not miss this amazing experience… just say YES and click on your skis to get ready for the best run of your whole life!!!
Attend every YES apres. They give out free beer or wine AND FREE NACHOS. There are two a week and it’s a great time for the whole group: instructors, other staff, and everyone participating in YES improvement to hang out and catch up. They show funny videos from the week and the lovely PJ always gives a speech with highlights from the past few days. I would always feel the YES family strongest at YES apres and I know if I’m in Whistler again I will be welcome back in a second.
