11 Week – Professional Ski Instructor

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 crafted our program by listening to 25 years of our graduates’ feedback and we have built the world’s best program to make sure you achieve your goals.

Program Overview

The Ski Instructor course will not only take your skiing to new heights, it 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. This extensive program will take you through all the training you need for you to achieve your CSIA Levels 1 & 2 certifications.

The Full Enchilada YES Tours 11 week program covers CSIA levels 1 & 2, AST 1, AST advanced (possible backcountry overnight trip), CADS level 1 certification (disabled ski teaching), Snow Park training and advanced skiing training. Find out more in the “More Info” section below.

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

Reviewing videos of your technique is just one of the integral ingredients of the YES recipe for success. Being able to watch yourself while you are on the mountain with your group will strengthen your mental imagery to improve your technique and put that into practise immediately.
