7 Week – Ski Instructor Program

Ski Instructor Programs

The YES Professional Ski Instructor Course is the ultimate program for anyone looking to get the most out of their time in Whistler. We have spent the last few years listening to our graduates’ feedback and we have built the next generation of ski courses!

Program 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 certifications 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.

Not only will we take your skiing to new heights, the program will also improve your interpersonal skills, make you a better communicator and increase your technical knowledge of skiing, snow, your equipment – everything relating to this awesome sport.

The program includes regular technical videos, on-going assessment of your skiing progress, weekly fun video (see yourself on the big screen at our weekly Friday après) and a written personalized evaluation each week from one of our qualified Level 4 Pros.
