Overview

This ultimate Instructor course is designed for those looking for a professional edge. The Full Enchilada will take you through the necessary training in order for you to gain your CASI Level 1 & 2 certification. The Canadian Association for Snowboard Instructors (CASI) Level 2 certifies you to teach snowboarders up to the advanced sliding turn and intermediate carving level. You will learn how to assess and develop riders in various teaching and tactics. Program includes technical seminar, on-going assessment of your riding progress, weekly fun video (see yourself on the big screen) and a written personalized evaluation each week from one of our qualified Level 4 Pros. You will also participate in our Snow park training clinic which will cover the progression to riding switch, rails, jumps and even half pipe and if you’re up for the challenge you may choose to add the CASI Park instructor 1 exam to your list of achievements.

You will also participate in the AST 1 & AST Advanced Avalanche awareness courses which we believe is a necessity for anyone adventuring in the mountains during the winter. This is a course for those wishing to acquire appropriate entry level safety skills, proper instruction in uphill skinning techniques, assessing mountain environments and of course, the fun of powder snow boarding. Learning outcomes for the AST level 1 certificate are to develop understanding of winter hazards with increased confidence in decision making in avalanche terrain.

Overall, the professional 11 week program will improve your interpersonal skills, make you a better communicator and increase your technical knowledge as you advance your own riding to new heights!

What Level of rider do I 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 shredding master!

YES ACCOMMODATIONS

YES offers various accommodation options allowing you to create your own experience.

YES CATERED CHALETS: Bear Tracks & Peak Chalet - These accommodations include 6 delicious dinners weekly and daily continental breakfasts. Meals are prepared by the chalet host daily and all meals are enjoy from the comfort of the house... its like a big family dinner each night!

YES SELF-CATERED CHALETS: Creekside Chalet - only Quad and Triple rooms available - these accommodations don't include a meals package so the overall cost is cheaper.

For our mature age clients (Yes that's me too) I would suggest YES 3* multi share accommodations. Email us to learn what is available for you.

Twin and Single self-catered rooms are only available in the 3 star multi share properties. You can prepare all your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen and the grocery store is a stone's throw away.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

It’s important to understand what is actually included in your Ssnowboard Instructor program - YES includes everything you need; there are no hidden fees or exam costs when you get into Whistler. The CASI Level 2 exam fee is included (priced well over $600.00) - WHY do we include it? Simple, because we know that our YES instructors can get you there!

Don't forget - if you book the catered chalet option (CATD) your package includes 6 delicious dinners and 6 continental breakfasts each week! Worth over CAD$1000 during the 11 weeks you're here... oh and the best part is you don't have to cook the entire time your here! 

Finally if neither of these properties suit your needs, never fear! Drop me an email and lets arrange something that suits your desires, YES is always happy to build you the perfect package for you.
