Jack Wilton – “The 11 week snowboard course in SPR was fantastic, the training was brilliant and everyone in the group had their own things to work on. Accommodation was perfect, right in the centre of the village and without a doubt the best pizza I have ever eaten!”
The 11 week snowboard course in Sun Peaks Resort was fantastic and was managed really well. I also trained and passed CSIA level 1 skiing. I had the experience of a lifetime throughout the whole course, it was the time of my life so far.
The training was brilliant everyone in the group had their own things to work on and successfully completed all the courses. I felt the training worked to everyone’s comfortable pace and was instructed by the some of the best instructors in Canada.
The accommodation was perfect, right in the centre of the village and without a doubt the best pizza I have ever eaten being served right underneath us, which was dangerous but too good to turn down. Food as a whole was okay, a little bit of the same, but what can you expect being in a village in the mountains. Overall it was good. We would never go hungry. Put it that way!
I shadowed a few lessons so I knew what it was like in a real life situation which helped me loads.
The Winter Sports Company were amazing, Steve and Karen are 2 of the nicest people I have ever met, and both helped me loads throughout my trip with exams, working visas and organizing flights home etc. They were the mum and dad of the course or, as I liked to say, the nan and granddad, which they will hate me for, but they looked after us all, and on a serious note, I wouldn’t want any other two people to go away with and have looked after us, they were brilliant.
I just hope they both keep doing it so others can also have an experience of a lifetime like I have.
