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).
