This 7 week Instructor course will take you through the necessary training in order for you to gain your CASI Level 1 certification and begin the training towards the Level 2. The Canadian Association for Snowboard Instructors (CASI) Level 2 certifies you to teach snowboarders up to the advanced sliding turn and intermediate carving level. You will also participate in our Snow park training clinic which will cover the progression to riding switch, rails and jumps.

The course also includes the  AST 1 Avalanche awareness course which is a necessary course for anyone adventuring in the mountains during the winter. This is a course for those wishing to acquire appropriate entry level safety skills, proper instruction in uphill skinning techniques, assessing mountain environments and of course, the fun of powder snow riding. Learning outcome for the AST level 1 certificate is to develop understanding of winter hazards with increased confidence in decision making in avalanche terrain.

Overall, the professional 7 week program will improve your interpersonal & communication skills and increase your technical knowledge as you advance your own riding to new heights!

You will learn how to assess and develop riders in various teaching and tactics. Program includes technical talks, on-going assessment of your riding progress, weekly fun video (see yourself on the big screen) and a written personalized evaluation from one of our qualified Level 4 Pros.

What Level of rider do I need to be? As long as you are linking turns on a blue run (low intermediate) you would be more than welcome to join the course. 

YES ACCOMMODATIONS

YES offers various accommodation options allowing you to create your own experience.

YES CATERED CHALETS: Bear Tracks & Peak Chalet - These accommodations include 6 delicious dinners weekly and daily continental breakfasts. Meals are prepared by the chalet host daily and all meals are enjoy from the comfort of the house... its like a big family dinner each night!

YES SELF-CATERED CHALETS: Creekside Chalet - only Quad and Triple rooms available - these accommodations don't include a meals package so the overall cost is cheaper.

For our mature age clients (Yes that's me too) I would suggest YES 3* multi share accommodations. Email Belinda to learn what is available for you.

Twin and Single self catered rooms are only available in the 3 star multi share properties. You can prepare all your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen and the grocery store is a stones' throw away.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

It’s important to understand what is actually included in your Ski Instructor program - YES includes everything you need; there are no hidden fees or exam costs when you get into Whistler. The CASI Level 1 exam fee is included (priced well over $500.00) - WHY do we include it? Simple, because we know that our YES instructors can get you there!

Don't forget - if you book the catered chalet option (CATD) your package includes 6 delicious dinners and 6 continental breakfasts each week! Worth over CAD$500.00 during the 7 weeks you're here... oh and the best part is you don't have to cook the entire time your here! 

Finally if neither of these properties suit your needs, never fear, drop me an email and lets arrange something that suits your desires and needs, YES is always happy to build you the perfect package.
