Insider information on the ski & snowboard industry and our ski and snowboard instructor courses.
Most people haven’t heard of Red Mountain when they initially get in touch with us… and that’s the way we like it! Red is Canada’s hidden gem; it boasts absolutely incredible terrain, a HUGE average annual snowfall and Rossland is a unique and charming Canadian town yet there is not a major tourism scene here. Because of this prices are kept low, so despite the fact we use luxurious slope side condo’s (think ski in ski out & private hot tubs on the deck), our 11 week course in Red Mountain is the cheapest that we offer! This makes it the best value course on the market… have a read of what the 12/13 season crew thought of their time there.
At Nonstop we know that doing an 11 week instructor course is a HUGE decision! For some, doing a season like this is a once in a lifetime event, whereas others do this course to set themselves up for a life in the mountains. Whatever your reason behind doing a course like this, it helps to hear from people that have been there and done it. If you would like to speak with a past participant of our 11 week instructor course in Fernie then let us know – we have loads of past Nonstoppers that would be willing to speak to you! In the meantime, have a read of some of the comments that the 12/13 alumni left for us as feedback…. thanks guys!
Okay, so I haven’t been able to check this jacket out actually on the snow, but unless you’ve been living in a hole these past few months (which might have been quite nice really, if it was warm down there) or another country (I envy you) you will have witnessed the extreme temperatures that good old Blighty has been subjected to. Both of the Mountain Warehouse, Extreme collection products I’ve been testing out this week have stood the test of the harsh and damp British cold remarkably well.
I really didn’t know what to expect from the Avalanche Safety Training and I’m guessing if you’re thinking about taking a Nonstop course, that you don’t either, so here’s how it went for me…
Nonstop’s Pete jumped at the chance to try a softshell jacket that claims to keep you warm and dry on the hill. Here’s what he thought of the Trew Wyeast jacket…
Like many other snowboarders out there, I’m a kit-junky. It doesn’t take much to persuade me to try out something a little different. So when Trew approached me about trying out their Wyeast softshell jacket, I jumped at the opportunity.
