11 Week - Professional Ski Instructor

 AKA: The FULL Enchilada

The YES Professional Ski Instructor Course (aka: The FULL Enchilada!) is the ultimate program for those 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 think we have built the new generation of ski courses! YES will now be taking the 11 week course into the backcountry!

The Ski Instructor course will improve your interpersonal skills, you will become a better communicator and increase your technical knowledge as you advance your own skiing to new heights! This extensive program will take you through the necessary training in order for you to gain your CSIA Level 1 & 2 certification. 

The program includes technical video, 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. Technical video 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

11 WEEK COURSE INCLUDES:

What level of skier do you 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!

THE FULL ENCHILADA - FEBRUARY 2019

February 9th 2019 - 11 week course

** Please note: The 11 week course starting on the 9h Feb 2019 differs slightly as it will include the BASI Level 2! This is an awesome choice if you are looking to also gain the BASI Level 2 certification. Like the CSIA, the BASI certification is recognized around the world, especially in European resorts. Having both CSIA and BASI methodology will increase your knowledge and hiring opportunities. The BASI certification is a 2 week training course including the exam. You must successfully pass the CSIA Level 2 in order to proceed onto the BASI Level 2. You will also need to have a valid first aid certificate to sit the BASI course. If you do not have this we can arrange for you to get this in Whistler. Note that this program will not include the AST2 and CADS. Find out more about the BASI level 2 here.
