At ALLTRACKS, we do not work off an exact schedule,  in order to make best use of the conditions and client wants/needs. However, most days are split into two distinct sessions to give you the best balance. One of them will be a high tempo, high mileage session where you will hit the best conditions available. Feedback will generally come at the end of runs or on the chairlift. The other session follows a more deliberate path, where you will work on drills to improve particular aspects of your technique and concentrate on the ways to take your riding to the next level. The video cameras will come out and you will receive detailed feedback on how you are doing.

Working after the Course

Once you have completed the CASI Level 1 during the 4 week course, you will go on to work at the Whistler Blackcomb Snowboard School as a full time instrcutor for the 2013/14 winter season. Whistler attracts skiers from all over the world and being part of Canada’s most successful snowboard school should ensure that you have a wonderful winter at one of the best places to snowboard on the planet.
