Our expert instructors are handpicked to unlock your potential, grow your love for the sport and show you the best terrain on the mountain. You'll become an all-round skier with the style of an instructor and qualifications to prove it. Our coaches will develop your skiing from short radius to freestyle, building your technical understanding and honing your teaching skills.
Whatever the dream, our program provides the best way to advance your skiing and continue your progression. Not planning on instructing, then go for our All Mountain Pro program after your Level 1 exam; forget about teaching techniques, just explore the mountain and focus on your riding.
During the program you'll train for qualifications with the CSIA (Canadian Ski Instructors' Alliance), working towards the Level 1 and Level 2. The CSIA offers a great route into the industry, with the Level 2 being recognised in ski schools around the globe, from Japan to New Zealand.
You'll also have the opportunity to gain the CSIA Snowpark certification and CSCF Race Coach Level 1 to bolster your skills further. And unique to Nonstop, take part in our 'Community Days' initiative where you can volunteer to teach local people at a nearby ski hill after securing your Level 1, to gain invaluable instructing experience.
Discover the Nonstop way of mountain living. Go full guns blazing at our MORE program, an unforgettable schedule of experiences that will redefine your winters forever. Build and sleep in your own snow cave, explore untouched fields of powder on a guided cat ski expedition, let loose snowmobiling in expansive wilderness, or get rowdy cheering on the local ice hockey team. Skiing is just the tip of the ice berg.
We look forward to speaking with you.
