5 Week Ski Instructor

14 January 2017 - 17 February 2017

The 5 week ski instructor course remains one of our most popular options. This ski programme provides expert ski coaching in a fun environment to bring your skiing on across the entire mountain. Not only is this the most thorough 5 week level 1 training course available, it also uses the ALLTRACKS training formula to ensure your technique improves both on and off piste.

You will learn the resort’s best best spots from Whistler’s top tree runs to the wide open bowls found in the upper mountain. Each day of training, we aim to hit the best conditions so you have a great time as well as skiing hard.

After 5 weeks, you’ll have completed the CSIA L1 exam and enjoyed some of the very best ski terrain to be found anywhere.
