4 Week Ski Instructor Program

Ski Instructor Programs

The YES Rookie Ski Instructor Course will get you to CSIA Level 1 by building a solid base in your skiing and teaching abilities. 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 regular 4 week program will improve your skiing and teach you how to teach others. You will complete the CSIA Level 1 certification in your 3rd week, then go on to experience the wonder of the backcountry through the AST 1 course.

The program includes regular technical videos, on-going assessment of your skiing progress, fun video and a written personalized evaluation each week from one of our qualified Level 4 Pros.

The Nov 2022 program is only 3 weeks and will not include the AST 1.

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.
