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.

More Info

YES offers a range of accommodation options so you can choose your own experience. We have made some changes this season due to the COVID situation so all accommodation is only single room or twin share. We still have our chalets and condos, and this year we are including some hotel options.

We can also help you find a private rental suite or condo if that would suit you better, contact us for a quote.

  • CHALETS:  CATERED / SELF-CATERED:  Staying at these chalets you have the option of including 4 delicious dinners each week in the comfort of your house. There is also self-catering facilities in the chalet so if you prefer that option you can manage your own meals as you wish.
  • YES CONDOS: Located through the resort, we have 2 bedroom condos with a kitchen provided so you can make your own meals.
  • HOTELS:  CATERED / SELF-CATERED: We are offering accommodation packages at the very comfortable ski in/out Blackcomb Springs Suites. You can also upgrade to include 4 dinners / week if you chose, otherwise you can make your own meals in your hotel suite.
