Our Story

Who We Are

Born over a decade ago out of an obsession with the mountains, Nonstop runs a collection of ski and snowboard courses for those that share a love of snow and dream of pushing their level.

Our Roots

It was in the backcountry of Fernie, British Columbia that the Nonstop concept was conceived. The idea was to combine progressive ski and snowboard coaching with like-minded travellers to create truly life-enhancing experiences in the mountains. We will forever look back to Fernie as our original source of inspiration, and blueprint for future exploits: a hardcore hill combined with a real mountain community. This has fuelled our expeditions across Canada and beyond.

The Nonstop Collective

Progression is addictive, and runs through us as skiers and snowboarders. Our ethos centres on pushing limits and fostering a community of like-minded people. Over the years we’ve added to our portfolio of courses. We now offer instructor and patrol courses, plus all-mountain and backcountry courses in select mountain destinations across the world. A collective of skiers, snowboarders, instructors, guides and advisors.


Join The Nonstop Collective.

Fernie has exceeded what I expected. Both the town and resort are epic and have a lot to be explored. It has been the trip of a lifetime, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Without doubt, the best experience of my life! No more needs to be said! Set me up to work as a ski instructor with the awesome snow school at Fernie Alpine Resort.

The course surpassed all expectations and has taught me to embrace the unexpected in life. I've pushed myself and my riding has been taken to a level I didn't think possible.
