10 Week Snowboard Instructor Course

Our 10 week snowboard instructor course is the perfect way for snowboarders to combine earning instructor qualifications while revolutionising your snowboard skills. This extended programme is a great way to spend a gap year or break from work, and it is also ideal if you are looking to go on and work as a snowboard instructor. All in all, the perfect way to spend 10 weeks riding with like minded people and improving every day.

Like every ALLTRACKS course, the training follows our own ALLTRACKS training formula in order to give you the most varied snowboard coaching available. In addition to hunting powder, we cover technical sessions where you will really focus in on your technique along with higher tempo, free flowing lessons where you will enjoy the very best terrain and snow conditions. Snowboard coaching is always limited to six students per coach so you benefit from individual attention and sessions can move quickly.
