10 Week Level 1, 2 & 3 Ski Instructor Course

The ALLTRACKS 10 week Level 1, 2 & 3 ski instructor course is a demanding programme aimed at capable and motivated skiers looking for a fast track training camp to attain the PSIC or CSIA Level 1,2 & 3 qualifications in one season.

This course provides 10 weeks of top level ski coaching at Whistler Blackcomb, Canada’s favourite resort. No matter if you are taking a gap year, a career break or embarking on a career in the mountains.

Earning the Level 3 certificate within 10 weeks is a challenge, but if you arrive to Whistler as a strong recreational skier, determined to improve as much as possible in 10 weeks, it is a realistic target.

You’ll be trained by some of the most experienced coaches in the country who will help refine your ski technique as well as guide you through the certifications. Your coaches will also showcase the very best that Whistler has to offer – Whistler Blackcomb being home to the biggest and most varied ski area in North America and it is also Canada’s snowiest major resort.

The first two weeks focus on all mountain technical ski training and then the PSIC/CSIA L1 instructor course. After this we cover the Level 2 and the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA) Avalanche Skills Training 1. The final 4 weeks are all about the Level 3 training, modules and exam.

As with all our courses, the foundation is the quality of coaching provided by our expert team. Our hand picked coaches, led by one of Canada’s top Level 4 Examiners (Guy Hetherington) deliver the ALLTRACKS Training Formula. This thorough training program will challenge you, revolutionise your ski technique but also hopefully be great fun along the way.

Your instructors will give continual support as well as detailed feedback along with video analysis. With ski coaching always restricted to a maximum of 6 per coach, you can be sure of receiving plenty of personal attention while still enjoying the dynamics, camaraderie and fun of being in a group of like minded skiers.
