7 Week Snowboard Instructor

YES offers 7 week courses throughout the 2019/2020 season. To view prices and accommodation options scoll to the bottom of the page!

 


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.
