7 Week Intensive Ski Instructor Course

This intensive ski instructor course provides 7 weeks of the very best ski training. If you are looking to qualify as a PSIC or CSIA Level 2 ski instructor in a relatively short period then this option could be for you.

We focus on improving technique and understanding across all terrain and snow conditions as well as preparing you for the PSIC and CSIA exams. The first week is all about exploring the resort and beginning to analyse your technique. The next couple of weeks develop this and prepare for the Level 1 instructor exam which we schedule for week 4 whilst also honing your all mountain skills and exploring the best runs around Whistler.

We also include the Canadian Avalanche Association AST 1 course to give a solid introduction to mountain awareness. After the Level 1, we combine hitting the best terrain at Whistler while equipping you for the Level 2 which we schedule for the latter part of the course.
