Established in 2002, Nonstop is the home of ski & snowboard instructor courses, improvement courses and backcountry adventures, delivered in handpicked mountain destinations across the world. Every year we gather in the world's best ski areas joined by troops of adventurers, set on taking their skills to new levels and redefining what it means to ski and snowboard. From aspiring snowsports instructors, to those seeking a gap year, career break, holiday or challenge.
The seed of Nonstop was sown in 2002 on a typically deep powder day whilst cat skiing in the British Columbian backcountry. Our founder, Rupert, had spent the winter in Fernie working as a snowboard instructor and dreamed of bringing the experience to more people.
The vision was simple: to deliver the best ski and snowboard coaching experiences imaginable in the most authentic resorts, and build a community of powder-seeking skiers and snowboarders who revel in the mountains and connect through sharing turns.
We launched our inaugural program in 2003 in Fernie with our famous 11 week instructor course, which very much remains at the heart of our business. Today, we continue to expand our programs and now deliver over 20 courses across three continents in some of the world's best resorts.
Untamed mountain destinations, inspirational coaching and immersive winter experiences form the fabric of Nonstop.
Fernie was our blueprint; an unbelievable mountain, bucket loads of powder, gnarly terrain and a welcoming community. Each of our locations has been handpicked to deliver on all fronts.
If location was the heart of our programs, our coaches would be the backbone. Our team of pros will help you achieve your goals on snow, take you to new highs and share their secrets on the mountain.
Beyond ski and snowboard coaching, we encourage adventure and exploration, and pushing your own boundaries, by throwing yourself into mountain life.
And the glue that holds it all together: you. Lucky for us, some pretty cool people tend to be drawn to the mountains, united by a shared love. We don't know exactly who'll be on your course, but you can put money on it that the people you'll ride with will be awesome!
We look forward to speaking with you.
