YES PROGRAMS 2023/24 – BOOK NOW FOR THE BEST PRICES!
Prices will go up in July, so book now to get the best price!
This ultimate Instructor course is designed for those looking for a professional edge. We will take you through all the necessary training for you to gain your CASI Level 1 & 2 certifications. The Canadian Association for Snowboard Instructors (CASI) Level 2 certifies you to teach snowboarders up to the advanced sliding turn and intermediate carving level.
The program includes technical seminars, on-going assessment of your riding progress, weekly fun videos (see yourself on the big screen!) and a 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. 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. 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.
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!

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.
