Whistler Ski Internship

Live the Dream! ALLTRACKS offers ski instructor internships in conjunction with Whistler Blackcomb Snow School University designed to prepare you for a career as a ski Instructor at Canada's best resort.

Get in touch to request our IEC Working Holiday Visa Guide.

On our ski instructor internships, if you pass your CSIA Level 1 instructor exam and complete the training program, there’s the potential to gain a paid ski instructor job with the Whistler Blackcomb Snow School – subject to a post-internship interview process. In fact, everyone who has previously completed the WBSSU internship through ALLTRACKS has successfully gone on to secure a ski instructor job in Whistler!

We’d love to hear from you if you think you’re up for this amazing opportunity – whether it’s for a once-in-a-lifetime career break or gap year, or to begin a full-time career in the mountains.

Places are limited and the ski instructor internship can get booked up very quickly so please do contact the ALLTRACKS team if you’d like to apply, or for an initial conversation about what’s involved. If you are looking for a regular ski instructor course we have numerous other options available too.

Key Features


Places are extremely limited on the WBSSU ski instructor internship course. Interested? Contact us right away so one of the team can help you begin your application and answer any questions.

Candidates do need to have some relevant skills or experience. In particular, candidates should have a positive, enthusiastic and motivated outlook, and excellent communication skills who can work happily in a team environment. Being an advanced skier is necessary, and having some good teaching or leadership experience, will also help. You’ll also need a valid work permit to work in Canada – another reason why it’s critical that you apply as soon as possible.

Expert Coaching

The three-week ski instructor internship training program is delivered by some of the most experienced instructors in Whistler and will focus on preparing you to be a successful instructor at the same time as improving your all-mountain riding.

You’ll be schooled in official CSIA methodology, and develop highly-useful safety and teaching skills. You get plenty of individual attention and feedback whilst still benefiting from group dynamics.

Benefits & Qualifications

Towards the end of the ski instructor internship training, you will take your Level 1 CSIA instructor exams and an additional children’s training module workshop. The possibility of securing a ski instructor job with the Whistler Blackcomb Snow School does exist if you successfully complete the program.

Successful candidates looking for employment opportunities with the school may undergo a post-internship interview process for instructor positions within Whistler Blackcomb Snow School. 100% of Alltracks internship students have been successfully employed.

Whistler Blackcomb

Our ski instructor internships are based in Whistler Blackcomb as no other Canadian resort comes close to offering the same combination of varied terrain, massive snowfall and a vibrant resort base and it is a fantastic place to work.

If you want a ski instructor job after you qualify, you stand the best chance by applying to a snow school with suitable size and scope. Thankfully, Whistler Blackcomb Snow School is the largest in the world, with well over 1,000 employees.

Whistler Accommodation

As part of the ski instructor internship, accommodation is included in the Whistler. The staff housing is relatively basic but is sociable and virtually ski in/ski out.

Once staff housing is full we provide alternative accommodation and we can discuss the options with you.

Ski Instructor Career Advice

If you are looking to secure a ski instructor job beyond an initial season, we are on hand to help provide advice and support. Many interns have returned to Whistler in following seasons to work as well as taking up career opportunities elsewhere. Feel free to get in touch anytime if you would like to discover more. We’d love to help you continue your career in the mountains.
