7 week intensive snowboard instructor course

25 November 2017 - 12 January 2018

The ALLTRACKS 7 week intensive snowboard course is our seven week programme designed for riders hoping to take their all mountain snowboarding up a notch while qualifying as a CASI Level 2 snowboard instructor. Following the ALLTRACKS training formula we combine the latest coaching methods delivered by some of the best snowboard coaches in Canada.

After welcoming you to Whistler, we spend the first week showing you the terrain and begin to scrutinise your technical riding. Afterwards we build on this, honing your technique and preparing you for the CASI Level One in week 4. The early part of the course also includes the CAA Avalanche Skills Level 1 over one weekend.

With the Level 1 done, we move on to further riding development across more challenging terrain and also ensure you are as well prepared as possible for your CASI L2, which is scheduled for week 7. All in all, 7 weeks of the best snowboarding on the planet.
