Professional Coaching & Positive Environment

ALLTRACKS run a range of ski training courses at Whistler Blackcomb, Canada. From ski instructor courses to freestyle courses and everything in between, each course is designed to give you a fantastic experience. You’ll take your skiing to the next level whilst having great fun at Canada’s best ski resort.

Whichever programme you choose, you can be assured that you will receive the very best ski coaching available in a supportive and constructive environment – structured using our unique ALLTRACKS Training Formula.

Almost every ski course at the ALLTRACKS Whistler ski school provides foundational training in avalanche safety and backcountry skills, which can extend to recognised qualifications. These can be attained on their own, or as a useful supplement to qualifications awarded as part of an instructor or improvement course.

We operate exclusively at Whistler Blackcomb, Canada – one of the world’s premier all-mountain resorts. You’ll be based there for the duration of whichever ski course you choose, benefiting from the experience of our staff in the Whistler resort and with the option to stay in our well-located chalet accommodation.

Make this year the one to take your skiing to the next level and enjoy everything the mountains have to offer. Join ALLTRACKS in Whistler this winter season!

Ski Training

Well Structured Training

The ALLTRACKS Training Formula at our Whistler ski school combines component, challenge and free range training on every course, as well as methodology clinics. This results in your time on hill being varied, relevant and fun.

a) Component Training: When building sound ski or snowboard technique, it’s critical to start with a strong foundation – component training is designed to do just that.

Our team of CSIA & CASI examiners will break your skills down to their lowest common denominator and build them back up again correctly. By the end of your course at our Whistler ski school, strong technical ability will have become second nature as you master each component of the ALLTRACKS methodology.

b) Challenge Training: Also referred to as ‘top down’ training, each of our challenge training sessions is designed with a particular task in mind. Unlike component training, we won’t give you all the answers here.

Instead we’ll guide you a little then leave the rest to you. Discovering things for ourselves is a key part of not only acquiring skill, but retaining it. During each session you’ll be asked to push the limits of technique or performance and occasionally both.

c) Free Range Training: As the name suggests, these sessions will give you free range over some of the best ski and snowboard terrain on earth. We’ll use the power of group dynamics to push our personal limits while we explore the best of what’s hidden deep within the labyrinth of Whistler’s unofficial trail map.

By the end of your time with ALLTRACKS you will have experienced some of the steepest and deepest lines found anywhere in the world.

d) Methodology Clinics: For all people taking a 4, 5, 6, 7 or 11 week ski instructor courses we also include methodology clinics which provide a decisive breakdown of the Canadian Technical Model.

During these training sessions, we will expose you to a series of skiing or snowboarding competencies which will change the way you understand, demonstrate and communicate methodology.

‘Improvement through understanding’ is the guiding principle used throughout these sessions, which we consider critical to the meaningful development of proper technique.

Six people maximum per coach

At our Whistler ski school, we ensure we have a maximum training ratio of six guests per ski or snowboard coach so you improve further, faster with more personal attention. Why put up with groups of 8-10 that our competitors offer?

By being in a smaller training group with a maximum of five other people, you learn so much more and enjoy skiing with a much tighter ability group than is possible otherwise. This also makes for a lot more fun, with far less wasted time associated with skiing in a large group.

Expert & Engaging Coaches

The instructors at our Whistler ski school are all CSIA examiners or the international equivalent. They offer total professionalism with positive, inspiring personalities. Guy Hetherington handpicks our team and we’re lucky to have some of the very best. Read more about the ALLTRACKS team here.

Video Analysis

We own the latest Sony HD and Go Pro cameras in order to provide detailed video feedback. The Whistler resort provides us with on-hill classrooms complete with 52-inch screens to help analyse your technique.

On Hill Mileage

Whilst we appreciate how important feedback is, we know it is important to get out there and ski too. All our courses balance technical training with lots of mileage on the mountain.

Supportive Environment

As well as technical excellence, we want our ski coaching delivered in a fun and supportive way. Group camaraderie and fun on a holiday is important and so, of course, we aim to foster that. It is a real pleasure to see that many past guests remain close friends (and even married too!) with people they were on their course with, and with their coaches too.

Avalanche Safety Training

Virtually every ski course we run includes a thorough introduction to avalanche safety and backcountry skills. When you become a better, more experienced skier or snowboarder, we feel it is important to learn more about the mountain environment.

Your choice of course dictates the level of backcountry training provided, but at the very least, we include the Canadian Avalanche Association’s Avalanche Skills Training Level 1, and often Level 2 as well.


We know there are lots of good places to ski across the world but we wanted to select the very best. The Whistler resort offers a vast ski area, diverse terrain, huge snowfall and a vibrant village atmosphere.

On an extended course, being at a resort that offers the biggest and most varied terrain is a no brainer.
