Why Choose Nonstop?

The Best Courses on the Market

With our wealth of experience (we’ve been operating since 2002) we’re confident that we provide the best courses on the market.

The Bit Where We Blow Our Own Trumpet

When Nonstop started there were just four companies offering instructor training. These days there are over 30, so deciding which course to choose requires plenty of research. Whilst being the largest trainer we are also a family-run company. We are passionate about snow sports and believe we know how to deliver the best social experiences, even limiting our course numbers so that groups remain close-knit and personal.

The passion for Nonstop amongst our clients meant that they voted for us in numbers in the World Snow Awards, Best Tour Operator category. Winning this award on public vote saw us beat off competition from the likes of Crystal and Inghams, companies who take thousands of people away each winter. We must be doing a lot right to have generated that level of support! 

World Class Resorts

Nonstop has an exclusive contract in Fernie, meaning we are the only instructor training company allowed to operate out of the resort. This recognition by the resort owners of the quality of our courses proves their desire to keep Nonstop clients coming to their resort.

We have also chosen our resorts because we believe your gap year, career break or holiday should be about experiencing amazing new places as well as learning new skills. Not content to follow the crowds, we offer courses at exciting, unexploited ski areas, all of which have phenomenal powder conditions, un-crowded pistes, vibrant local communities and a friendly atmosphere, typical of the Canadian Rockies.

Professional Coaching

With the help of our technical directors (who represent the CSIA and CASI at an international level) we hand pick our instructors for their experience and local knowledge. In fact our instruction is so successful that some of our past clients are now teaching for our competitors.

In order to maintain consistently high standards and to allow us complete control, our groups are exclusively made up of Nonstop clients. This is unlike some companies who mix their clients in with public snow school lessons.

Knowledgeable Staff

We have trained more ski and snowboard instructors than any other company, and we have a level of experience that is second to none. From the course advisor team in the office to the residential staff in Canada, all are certified instructors and have each spent extensive time at the resorts we use. This means they really understand how the industry works.

Experienced Local Resort Staff

All our course hosts are experienced local residents who will inspire and show you everything the area has to offer. Unlike other instructor training companies we don’t employ young inexperienced British reps to oversee your course.

Value For Money

We include superior, centrally located accommodation, a wide range of additional courses, varied weekend trips - including heli or cat skiing and snowmobiling, and experienced local staff. Our packages offer great value with no hidden costs. In addition our non-refundable booking deposit is often less than that required by many of our competitors.

Career Service

We provide an extensive careers service including a 40 page manual and seminar on how to find work as an instructor. This is presented by snow school directors and our past clients who are now working and living in Canada. In addition to this we have unrivalled contacts within the industry to help you get a foot in the door at a resort.
