Enhance your existing skills with one of these programmes.

This is a small handfull of bespoke offerings which we are continually adding to complement this elite list. Ranging from the service side of the industry to the exploration of untouched, pristine areas of the world, you will find something suited to your needs or curiosity.

Based in Canada, these all have unique elements and training. We strongly suggest you get in touch to see how these can be customised to fit your budget and circumstances. Till then, here are our top-shelf contenders to give you a great idea of the content and timeline.

How much experience do I need?

Indeed, some of these would not suit your foray into the industry. However, if you are an advanced skier or snowboarder, have a good level of fitness,  have some baseline skills off-piste and overall confidence on-piste, then we may consider you for one of these programmes.

These courses are limited in group size, and we only take on a few lucky clients each year. Book early for a truly incredible season ahead.

Ski Instructor Qualifications

The Canadian Ski Instructor Alliance “CSIA” is the governing body in Canada. It is part of the ISIA and is highly regarded and recognized worldwide. At Winter Sports, we provide comprehensive training up to CSIA Level 3. Additionally, you can train in other ancillary courses from associations such as the Canadian Adaptive Snow Sports and Avalanche Canada.

What we offer
Avalanche Skills

Most of these courses will have some Avalanche skills element. You are about to venture off-piste and, in some cases, out of resort boundaries which will require an exceptional understanding of the snowpack and local dangers, extra insurance and a healthy respect for what mother nature can do. Learn more about the content of this incredibly useful course.

Avalanche Training
Ski Patrolling

It’s one of those jobs where you will have a love-hate relationship—rewarding yet tiring beyond belief. So be prepared to tackle all tasks in all weathers. Anticipate the storms, the avalanches, and the ice, and adapt to the ever-changing conditions as you work with the Mountain Ops teams at either Sun Peaks or Panorama and strive to keep all those around you safe.

Ski Patrolling

Top Quality Skiing in Sun Peaks & Panorama

Roger Gibbon- 6th March 2022

Just got back from spending most of the season in Sun Peaks and Panorama with the WSC. What an incredible experience. Rik, Emma and Rob were brilliant. They were unfailingly helpful and eager to help make the experience the best it could be. Always available when things didn't go right to put them right. This season presented massive challenges to the industry due to Covid, resort staffing shortages and supply issues. I was constantly amazed how WSC team were constantly thrown curve balls, that they took in their stride, making sure every one got the courses and experience necessary to become instructors or ski patrollers and have great time while doing it. The ski patrol course in particular is a very special opportunity that is hard to be beat. If you are serious about becoming a patroller this is the real deal.
