Whistler Snowboard Improvement Programs

Snowboard Improvement Programs

YES improvement training courses are designed to take your riding to new heights in all types of terrain – groomed runs, powder, steeps, bumps or terrain park…

We focus on improving both your technique and style, so that you will achieve the highest level of performance through customised programs tailored to your objectives.

Program Overview

Join a YES snowboard improvement course to take your riding to the next level.

With training from some of the finest snowboard instructors (CASI Level 4), you will see improvement in your riding through all types of terrain – on piste, in powder and in the terrain park.

Whistler is voted the #1 snow resort in North America year after year, and it’s not hard to see why. With so many options,  you 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 resorts! Whistler is the location of YES Tours’ headquarters, and our home. We can share the best of it with you! The mountain offers a little 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.

Each YES improvement program runs for a week. Arrival day is Saturday, allow you the time to arrange any equipment you might need and get familiar with the resort. First day on snow is Sunday which is our guiding day. A chance to warm up your legs and discover the mountains while our professional CASI Level 4 pros evaluate your riding 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 mingle with 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. We train for 4 hours per day with a hour extra for lunch break. Wednesday is a rest day which you can choose to free ride or take the time to enjoy one of Whistler’s many off-snow activities. Friday afternoon we hold our end of week après function where you will get to see yourself on the big screen!

How good a snowboarder 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 snowboarding god or goddess!


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.
