CSIA Level 2 Upgrade

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

So you already have your CSIA Level 1 or international equivalent? And you want to go for the CSIA Level 2? Well you can with YES.

You will improve your skiing, teaching and people skills with the goal of reaching the Level 2 standard. You will also receive suggestions and strategies for your long-term development as a skier. At the end of the 3 week program you will take the CSIA Level 2 course and certification.

We recommend coming for 3 weeks to complete the training and examination but if your time is limited you may choose to come for 2 weeks – talk to us to understand whether that will work for you.

We can also put together a custom schedule for you if you can’t do all 3 weeks in one block – for example do 1 or 2 weeks of ski improvement early in the season, then come back later in the winter to do the exam prep and certification.

  • Week 1 – Ski Improvement – find those ski legs again
  • Week 2 – Level 2 training and prep week
  • Week 3 – CSIA Level 2 exam

Here’s What’s Included:


  • Accommodation
  • Meals! 6 dinners and breakfasts per week (in catered chalets only)
  • Lift Pass
  • Resort rep available 24/7
  • 20+ Hrs of professional on-snow training per week

More Info

YES offers a range of accommodation options so you can choose your own experience.

  • CATERED CHALETS:  These chalets include 6 delicious dinners each week and daily continental breakfasts. Dinners are prepared by your chalet host and all meals are enjoyed in the comfort of your house… it’s like a big family dinner each night! We offer a standard catered chalet and a premium chalet for an additional cost. Click the button below to find out more.
  • SELF-CATERED CHALETS: These chalets don’t include a meals package so the overall cost is cheaper. There is a kitchen provided so you can make your own meals.
  • Peak Chalet, Alpine Chalet and Creekside Chalet are best suited to guests aged 18-25. Downhill House and YES Condos are best suited for guests aged 30+. If you fall in between get in touch and we can help you work out the best place for you.

Please note -the CSIA requires that you gain 10 Education Credits after the Level 1 certification to be eligible to take the Level 2 Certification. Find out more on the CSIA website here.

YES can assist and offer advice with this process, just ask!
