Ready to take your skiing or snowboarding to the next level?

You are in the right place!

With YES Tours you will take your skills to the next level while having the time of your life.


Join the thousands of delighted clients who have taken their skiing or riding to the next level with YES. Feel like your skiing or riding is stuck in a not-exactly-comfortable intermediate rut? We can get you exploring terrain you never dreamed you would be able to, with more comfort than you thought possible.

YES programs are also great for solo travellers or those with non-skiing / riding partners. Our program is great way to meet other like-minded snow enthusiasts from around the world. Join as much or as little of the social off-snow activities as you wish, there’s something for everyone.


We run improvement programs around the globe – from our home in Whistler, Canada, where you can join us almost any week through the season, to the powder rider’s delight that is Niseko, Japan, and, if like us you can’t get through 6 months without skiing, join us in beautiful Wanaka, New Zealand.

We have been running programs in Whistler and NZ for more than 2 decades, and in Japan for more than 10 years, so we can be your local guides whichever resort you choose. The programs are similar but have a local flair in each resort making them unique – why not visit all three!


At YES we have been running ski and snowboard  instructor training programs longer than anyone else in the world. We have been in the instructor training business for over 20 years and have certified well over 3,000 clients.  In fact we are now into the second generation – we have parents who did the program back in the day sending their kids to have the same amazing experience!

From our vast experience we have put together the best programs to make sure you reach your goals. Our programs include the right mix of certifications, with a well-balanced training plan and everything you need included. We understand that for some this may be your first independent experience overseas as a young adult and so YES is so much more than just a program, its a community!

Whistler is our home where we live year-round – it’s the biggest and best and that’s why you should do your instructor program here – nowhere else compares!


Our Instructor Programs include the training and methodology required by the Canadian CSIA (ski) or CASI (snowboard). YES has been working in partnership with Whistler Blackcomb for over 20 years and has a solid, proven track record of training each student to a high standard. Our goal is to get you beyond the standard expected for your certification so that you are fully prepared for your exam. Our training plans are carefully thought out, resulting in the optimum mix of training days and rest days each week, so you can perform your best and have fun along the way!

Skiing / riding is only 50% of the exam – the other 50% is teaching, and we will give you the tools and experience to be able to demonstrate your ability in both areas. Our professional CSIA/CASI Level 4 Instructors will take your technique back to basics to give you a strong foundation and then build it up using the Canadian methodology to ensure that you pass your exam with flying colours.
