Outstanding Ski & Snowboard Training
Pristine powder runs, instructor qualifications, backcountry tours or perfecting your technique – wherever you want to take your riding, ALLTRACKS will help you make the perfect turn. Every one of our ski and snowboard courses is run against the backdrop of Whistler Blackcomb, Canada – consistently rated one of the world’s top year-round destination resorts.
Whether you’re looking to spend a fun but challenging career break or gap year on an extended course, perfect your powder turns in a couple of weeks, learn more about backcountry riding and avalanche safety or become a qualified ski or snowboard instructor, we have a course for you.
Every year, a large number of ALLTRACKS clients take one of our ski or snowboard courses as a break from work. If you’re interested in stepping out of the office for a few weeks (or months) to recharge yourself, have fun and take your riding to the next level, our range of programmes could be what you’re looking for.
We’re happy that our snowboard and ski instructor courses bring people from Australia, UK, USA, Canada, France, Denmark, Germany, Holland, Sweden, South America, Russia, New Zealand and many other countries. We have UK and Australia telephone numbers or you can Skype or email us anytime.
Taking a gap year can be one of the most rewarding times of your life. It often comes during, or just after, a period of full-time education – a great opportunity to live in a totally different environment and consider your future.
Whatever you decide to do, it is important that you do something constructive and challenging. In our mind, lying on a beach in Thailand simply can’t deliver the same satisfaction as learning how to become a ski or snowboard instructor in Canada.

From the moment I picked up the phone and spoke to Paul I knew that the Alltracks course was for me. The accommodation way exceeded my expectations, both in terms of location and quality, and the snowboarding instructors were all world class and some of the nicest people you will ever meet. All in all I can’t say enough good things about the entire experience, and would recommend any of ALLTRACKS’ courses in a heartbeat.

Whistler is a fantastic place to live with so much going on, the accommodation ALLTRACKS provides is superb, and best of all the instructors are right out of the top drawer and really make the course so enjoyable. We made some fantastic lifelong friends on our career break who we already have plans to ski with in future. It’s a trip that neither of us will ever forget. Thank you!

When chatting with Paul about what to expect from the ALLTRACKS training formula and the overall experience they provide, it took very little time before I was on-board. The confidence and pride he bestowed on his product oozed through everything he said. He also went that extra mile in helping me create a package that would best suit not only my needs, but also my wife’s, who will also be spending much of the season out in Whistler.

ALLTRACKS put me on a completely new level that I had never expected to reach. I shared the experience with a fantastic group of like-minded people who I became great friends with, in what I consider to be the best ski area in the world. ALLTRACKS made the process enjoyable and easy, supporting me the whole way as I applied for jobs after the course, and in 2013/14 I returned to spend my first season as a Whistler Blackcomb employed ski instructor!

Heaps of fresh powder fell on Whistler in the month I was there…Alltracks Academy runs an excellent variety of skiing and snowboard courses in Canada, ranging from four to 11 weeks.
Alex Law Snowboard Instructor
I joined the 2009 Alltracks course in Whistler having only done three weeks of snowboarding in my life. Thanks to the quality of course and instructors I was able to achieve my dream faster than I had ever imagined. I had the best 11 weeks of my life meeting like-minded people who have since become great friends.
With Alltracks’ help I returned the following season to work for Whistler Blackcomb Ski & Snowboard School, and have since taught people from all around the world and ridden with pros I’d only ever seen on film.
George Minty Gap Year Skier
Whistler is the best town I have ever been too, and the ALLTRACKS course was the best choice I ever made! Every day skiing, every instructor, every day spent in our house, and every night out was completely unparalleled, and I can’t wait to go back!
Lyndsay Steel Skier
I wanted to do a ski season to have loads of fun and get to a stage where I had the confidence and ability to tackle the whole mountain, no matter what the conditions. The coaches on the Alltracks course were phenomenal and they taught so much more than I hoped for. The training really analysed my technique and before long I was enjoying the deep powder turns and steep slopes I always wanted to.

As a private family-run business, Alltracks Academy implies a more personal approach than some of the bigger organisations, promising small-scale groups that match students together according to ability.
Andrew Mills Skier
The quality of the accommodation was of a much higher standard than we expected and all seven housemates got on extremely well, so Alltracks got the mix just right. Having done a lot of research comparing different companies before signing up, I think we all came to realise during our time in Whistler that we’d picked the very best in the business for instructor training courses.
David Stevens Skier
The Alltracks experience far exceeded my expectations. The training was first rate, in large part due to the world-class instructors. Their knowledge of ski technique and the best local lines ensured the most memorable ski experience of my life so far. Great people, great skiing, great times.
Jake Farrugia Career Break Skier
Having previously done similar programs I came in to the course a fairly decent skier, but there wasn’t a week that I didn’t improve and definitely came out the other end substantially better. The quality of the coaching was outstanding, it’s immediately evident that ALLTRACKS have the pick of Whistler’s instructors. Coaches were rotated on a weekly basis ensuring there was always a fresh view on your skiing and no shortage of new techniques and tactics to be learnt. All in, the best thing you could ever do for your skiing.
Sandy Jennings Gap Year Ski Instructor
The organisation before and during the internship, the level of teaching, the facilities and support were all outstanding and contributed hugely to the fantastic experience I had. I enjoyed every aspect of my stay and benefited hugely from the expert teaching and the independent living arrangements, the friendships I made and mentoring I experienced.
Alex Rodger Skier
Going on the Alltracks course was simply the most fun I’ve ever had. Whistler was an incredible place and with the expert instruction, amazing town and beautiful scenery you really can’t ask for any more out of three months in the mountains.
Emma Roach Career Break Skier
My husband Ian and I recently had the absolute pleasure of spending four of the best months of our lives with the ALLTRACKS team. We researched a few different companies and locations before booking but Paul made the decision easy, providing flexibility with accommodation and helping us with anything else we needed during our trip. We would have no hesitation in recommending ALLTRACKS to anyone who wants to improve their skiing or boarding, gain qualifications and just have a great time in Whistler.
