7 Week - Ski Instructor Course

Overview

The 7 week Ski instructor course will take you through the necessary training in order for you to gain the CSIA Level 1 and 2 certification along with the AST 1 avalanche course. The Canadian Ski Alliance (CSIA) Level 1 qualifies you to teach children and adult beginners. The Level 2 certification will take you one step higher allowing you to teach skiers up to intermediate parallel skill level.

The program starts with a fun week of ski improvement. The second week concentrates more on the Level 1 requirements however don't you worry, there's always time for some hot powder laps! The third week you will sit the CSIA Level 1 exam. In the fourth week we take a slight turn and learn about the importance of Avalanche awareness and mountain safety. In the fifth and sixth weeks we're back at it, preparing for the level 2 exam with training and skills specifically required for the Level 2 exam which is held in the final week. 

What Level of skier 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 ski god or goddess!

7 WEEK COURSE INCLUDES:

YES ACCOMMODATIONS

YES offers various accommodation options allowing you to create your own experience.

  • YES CATERED CHALETS: Bear Tracks & Peak Chalet - These accommodations include 6 delicious dinners weekly and daily continental breakfasts. Meals are prepared by the chalet host daily and all meals are enjoy from the comfort of the house... its like a big family dinner each night!
  • YES SELF-CATERED CHALETS: Creekside Chalet - only Quad and Triple rooms available - these accommodations don't include a meals package so the overall cost is cheaper.
  • For our mature age clients (YES that's me too) I would suggest the YES 3* multi share accommodations. Email us to learn what is available for you or check out our Career Break page here for more information.

Twin and Single self catered rooms are only available in the 3 star multi share properties. You can prepare all your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen and the grocery store is walking distance.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

It’s important to understand what is actually included in your Ski Instructor program - YES includes everything you need; there are no hidden fees or exam costs when you get into Whistler. The CSIA Level 2 exam fee is included (priced well over $600.00) - WHY do we include it? Simple, because we know that our YES instructors can get you there!

Don't forget - if you book the catered chalet option (CATD) your package includes 6 delicious dinners and 6 continental breakfasts each week! Worth over CAD$500.00 during the 7 weeks you're here... oh and the best part is you don't have to cook the entire time your here! 

Finally if neither of these properties suit your needs, never fear, drop me an email and lets arrange something that suits your desires and needs, YES is always happy to build you the perfect package.
