Push your boundaries by joining the ALLTRACKS combined instructor & off piste course. This is the ultimate course if you want to improve your technical skiing, learn about avalanche safety and enjoy the best off piste skiing in Canada. Join a friendly group with other passionate skiers and supportive coaches and guides.

The first 5 weeks provide a solid grounding in all mountain technique as well as preparing you for, and sitting, the CSIA Level 1 instructor exam. After this, the focus is all off piste. You’ll receive training from some of the best big mountain coaches in Whistler, who will also guide you to the best conditions each day. In addition, you’ll do the Canadian Avalanche Association AST Levels 1 & 2. Led by IFMGA/ ACMG/ CAA guides you’ll go ski touring through the awe inspiring Garibaldi Park. Finally, you will take your skiing to the max with a day’s HELI Skiing in what will likely be one of the best day’s of your life. This really is the ultimate for keen powder skiers -you’ll access some of the best powder skiing to be found anywhere and a day in the Heli with friends and expert guides takes some beating.
