Ski Improvement – Whistler, Canada

Ski Improvement Programs

Our improvement training courses are designed to improve your skiing in all types of terrain – groomed runs, powder, steeps, bumps or terrain park…

Our focus on improving both technique and style ensures that participants achieve the highest level of performance through customised programs tailored to your objectives.

YES Improvement ski training courses provide CSIA Level 4 instructors to help you improve your skiing technique in your choice of terrain; short turns, long turns, bumps, deep powder and ski racing or freestyle for the advanced groups.

Program Overview

A YES Ski improvement course in Whistler is the perfect way to take your skiing to new levels.

Whistler Blackcomb is voted the no#1 ski resort in North America year after year, and it’s not hard to see why. With new pistes and lifts being created every year, ski course participants can find any type of terrain, for any skill level here in abundance, and hone your skills in one of the world’s most famous ski resorts! Whistler is the location of YES Tours’ headquarters, and we are waiting to show it off to you! The mountain offers something for everyone with its generous powder days, steep terrain, phenomenal tree runs, corduroy grooming… Whistler Blackcomb is the resort that just keeps giving while you keep improving.

The YES Improvement Program runs for a week. You arrive on Saturday, arrange any equipment you might need and get familiar with the resort.

First day on snow is Sunday, our guiding day. A chance to warm up your legs and discover the mountains while our professional CSIA Level 4 ski pros evaluate your skiing and work out which group would be best suited to you for the week. On Sunday afternoon we have a Welcome après function, this is a great way to meet others on the course and learn about what we have in store for you both on and off snow for the next few days!

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday are our instruction days. You train for 4 hours per day plus an hour lunch break. Wednesday is a rest day, when you can choose to free ski or take the time to enjoy one of Whistler’s many off-snow activities. Video Analysis of your technique is just one of the integral ingredients of the YES recipe for success. Being able to watch yourself will strengthen your mental imagery to improve your technique and tactics.

Friday afternoon we hold our end of week après function where you will get to see yourself on the big screen! For more details on what a YES week looks like drop us an email, we can email you a sample itinerary!

The whole experience is so great that many guests prefer to join two or more weeks at a time to get the most from their YES experience. There is no limit to how many weeks you can do (subject to availability).

How good a skier do I have to be?

Accommodation Options

At YES our aim is to get you into the right accommodation to suit your individual preferences. We can book you into a 5 star hotel, find you a private condo rental, or find you a place in one of our comfortable group accommodations. We are here in the resort year-round so we can always give you the best advice on hotels and other options.

If you are travelling alone and looking for a social group to join, the best place to start is in our YES accommodations. We have a shared house and some more smaller condos available. These units typically house 2 – 5 guests,  with shared living and dining rooms and fully equipped kitchens. Rooms can be twin share or single. If you would prefer twin share but are travelling alone, we will match you with a guest of the same gender. All bedrooms have private bathrooms (not always ensuite but close by).

Most of guests staying in these properties are aged 30 – 60 so you can enjoy good company with like-minded guests.

See more of our accommodation options here: YES houses and condos. Prices below are for these accommodations.

This year we have some specific hotel options also for anyone who would prefer not to share accommodation, see pricing details below.

If you would prefer a different hotel or private condo rental just let us know your dates and preferences and we will happily get you some quotes.
