Ski Instructor Internships

Whistler
Ski
Internship

LIVE THE DREAM: ALLTRACKS offers ski instructor internships in conjunction with Whistler Blackcomb Snow School University designed to prepare you for a career as a Ski School Instructor.

On our ski instructor internships, if you pass your CSIA Level 1 instructor exam and complete the training program, there’s also the potential to gain a paid ski instructor job with the Whistler Blackcomb Snow School – subject to a post-internship interview process. In fact, everyone who has previously completed the WBSSU internship through ALLTRACKS has successfully gone on to work as an instructor at Whistler.

We’d love to hear from you if you think you’re up for this amazing opportunity – whether it’s for a once-in-a-lifetime career break or gap year, or to begin a full-time career in the mountains. The ski internship can get booked up very quickly so please do contact the ALLTRACKS team if you’d like to apply, or for an initial conversation about what’s involved. If you are looking for a regular ski instructor course we have numerous other options available too.

Key
Features

Application Proceedure

Places are extremely limited on the WBSSU ski internship course. Interested? Contact us right away so one of the team can help you begin your application and answer any questions.

Candidates do need to have some relevant skills or experience. In particular, candidates should have a positive, enthusiastic and motivated outlook, and excellent communication skills who can work happily in a team environment. Being an advanced skier is necessary, and having some good teaching or leadership experience, will also help.

You’ll also need a valid work permit to work in Canada – another reason why it’s critical that you apply as soon as possible.

Expert Coaching

The three-week training program is delivered by some of the most experienced instructors in Whistler, five days a week, and will focus on preparing you to be a successful instructor at the same time as improving your all-mountain riding.

You’ll be schooled in official CSIA methodology, and develop highly-useful safety and teaching skills. Training groups are limited to six trainees per instructor to ensure that you get plenty of individual attention whilst still benefiting from group dynamics.

Benefits & Qualifications

The end of the ski internship will see you take your Level 1 CSIA instructor exams and an additional children’s training module workshop.

The possibility of employment with the Whistler Blackcomb Snow School does exist if you successfully complete the three weeks of training and pass the exam.

Successful candidates looking for employment opportunities with the school will undergo a post-internship interview process for instructor positions within Whistler Blackcomb Snow School.

Based in Whistler

All our courses are based in Whistler Blackcomb as no other Canadian resort comes close to offering the same combination of varied terrain, massive snowfall and a vibrant resort base.

If you want a ski instructor job after you qualify, you stand the best chance by applying to a snow school with suitable size and scope. Thankfully, Whistler Blackcomb Snow School is the largest in the world, with well over 1,000 employees.

Accommodation

As part of the ski internship, four weeks of accommodation is included. The accommodation provided is functional, sociable and well-located, being virtually ski in, ski out.

Should you go on to gain employment with Whistler Blackcomb Snow School after completing your internship, you will live in Whistler staff accommodation for the remainder of the season. For Whistler Blackcomb employees, this is typically paid for out of your wages once you start working.

Career Advice

If you are looking to work as a ski instructor beyond an initial season, we are on hand to help provide advice and support. Many interns have returned to Whistler to work as well as taking up career opportunities elsewhere. Feel free to get in touch anytime if you would like to discover more.
