14 Week L1, L2 & L3 Ski Instructor Course

The Ultimate Season Course

The ALLTRACKS 14 week ski instructor course in Whistler is our longest and most comprehensive training course taking enthusiastic recreational skiers through their PSIC/CSIA Level 1, Level 2 & Level 3.

If you are looking to gain an extremely well respected ski instructor qualification in order to begin a career as an instructor, or if you want to participate in a comprehensive training course as part of a challenging gap year or career break then this could be the course for you.

To gain your Level 3 in one season from scratch is no piece of cake and it will take determination  and effort to achieve it. However, you will be supported all the way by some of the most talented coaches in Whistler as well as having a direct line to the ALLTRACKS Head coach, Guy Hetherington.

Following the ALLTRACKS Training Formula – a thorough training course that will challenge you but also be a great deal of fun,  we will ensure that you are as well prepared as possible for your instructor exams, covering modules focusing on all aspects of skiing with plenty of supportive, constructive feedback and video analysis. With ski coaching limited to a maximum of 6 per coach, you can be confident of getting plenty of attention while still enjoying the dynamics and camaraderie of a training group with other skiers.
