CSIA Level 2 Ski instructor course

5 weeks/6 weeks – Sun Peaks, Canada – £4995

Our 5 or 6 week Level 2 ski instructor courses start in January or February. If you want to arrive earlier to brush up your skiing, this can be extended to seven or eight weeks.

You will join our 11 week programme at Sun Peaks Resort, Canada, after the CSIA Level 1 exams. You will start by refreshing your skills with some teaching and shadowing at the sports school. The Level 2 ski instructor course training then begins the following week and continues until the Level 2 exams in March. See Level 2 standards here.

Sun Peaks resort has a friendly village vibe, more European in flavour than North American. You can ski from your hotel to the nearest lift and sports school. This homely and convenient environment allows you to relax and focus on your course

If you need more we also include an Adaptive Sports training course and a day with Ski Patrol. We also provide opportunities to take additional courses. Many of our clients improve their carving technique on a CSCF race coaching course, and the park enthusiasts can learn more about safety and park skills on a Park Instructor course.

The level 2 ski instructor course departing in January can be extended to a level 2 & 3 training programme, please call us for prices and availability.
