I did the 18 week course in Sun Peaks and had the best time of my life while also getting qualified to do the job I have always dreamed of doing.
The course is really well organised and Karen and Steve do an amazing job of helping with any problems people may have.

You make friends for life and have a lot of fun on and off the slope.
The training itself was top notch and I couldn’t of asked for better instructors.
The snowboard training was very good and we had one instructor who took us all the way from level 1 through to level 2.
Having one instructor meant he was able to learn all our bad habits and could structure the training in order to make it work for each individual and work towards what they needed to fix. Although the training was tough and hard work we always had a great laugh and looked forward to the next day.
The ski training was a bit different as we had a lot of instructors who took us for a couple of days each, this worked really well as we got to experience a lot of different teaching styles and hearing a lot of instructors feedback and opinions helped understand what we needed to work on.
Accommodation and food
The accommodation is really good and by the second week it felt like home, the rooms are a good size and have pretty much everything you need in them.
The food was pretty good and varied a lot between the 3 restaurants to give you quite a few different options throughout the week, one of the restaurants had a daily special as well which always went down well.
Work experience after the course
Karen and Steve are so helpful when it comes to finding work and they will do anything they can to help you find it, wherever that may be.
Karen Helped everyone with their CV’s and Visa applications and even woke up at 7am on a Saturday to help us send of our applications in the limited window that you can apply.
After passing all my exams I was lucky enough to be offered a job at Sun Peaks for the next season and am looking forward to returning.
Support from WSC during and after
I originally planned on doing my level 1 and 2 ski and level 1 snowboard but while I was out there I decided I wanted to do level 2 in both, Karen and Steve were very happy to help me do this and helped organise my training to make it work.
Karen and Steve don’t care about pass rates just so they look good as a company they care because they want everyone to succeed and get the most out of their time on the course as possible.
