“A really fun, valuable and important experience for your career and also for taking the next level of certification. Sun Peaks is a great place to start your career as an instructor, it’s really friendly, it’s never super crowded, good slopes to teach on, an encouraging and supportive employer”
I participated in the Snowboard Instructor Internship in Sun Peaks Canada during the season 2014/2015. After finishing my CASI level 1 exam I started to work for the Sun Peaks Resort Snow School. This program provide you with the requirements to succeed as an instructor. You get the necessary training and can directly start practicing and improving your skills by working for the school. Really fun, valuable and important experience for your career and also for taking the next level of certification. During the season I was there I had plenty of time to participate in the CASI level 2 training, provided by the Snow School and Winter Sports Company. I had my CASI level 2 certification before I left Canada. I haven’t participated in similar programs with any company before so didn’t really know what to expect, but I’m really happy with my choice. The Winter Sports Company provided me with good service and support before my trip and on site. After visiting plenty of Canadian resorts I find Sun Peaks a great place to start your career as an instructor, it’s really friendly, it’s never super crowded, good/safe slopes to teach on, an encouraging/supportive employer and the size of the village make it walkable so you don’t need to drive a car as some Canadian ski resorts require.
