9 Week Ski Instructor Course Whistler

Based at Whistler, Canada's Number 1 Resort, this course offers ski instructor training for CSIA L1 & L2 whilst revolutionising your all mountain skiing.

Our 9 week programme in Whistler is a great way to qualify as a CSIA L1 & L2 ski instructor whilst also transforming your all mountain skiing and learning more about avalanche safety. You’ll enjoy the biggest resort in Canada, being coached by some of the top coaches in the country all in supportive and fun manner in a group of other like minded skiers.

Following the ALLTRACKS Training Formula, your technical skiing will radically improve while you enjoy one of the world’s premier resorts. The training team is made up of some of the most experienced and motivated coaches in Canada, and in addition to guiding you to the goods each day, they will continue to analyse and improve your technique so that you leave the course as confident and capable in deep powder conditions as on the piste.

Is this the course for you?

  • ALLTRACKS gives you access to the best coaching, terrain and accommodation in Whistler. The ALLTRACKS training formula put my skiing on a completely new level and allowed me to view the sport in new and innovative ways - I could see myself improving every day! My accommodation was very well situated in relation to the lifts and town as well as having a huge outdoor hot tub for post-skiing rest and relaxation.
