The Mountain Patrol course is our most intense programme, with up to 40hrs of training every week. It’s long hours and hard work. You also need to be a strong skier to start with, but it’s also incredibly rewarding and packed full of modules.

But what is a Patrol Course, and where can it lead you?

“Best season ever!”

M Coughlan - 8 Mar 2022
"The Winter Sports company have been great. The company owners are very friendly and attentive, and are always willing to change things to accommodate you and how you want your season to go. I have had the best time out here in Panorama and have received my CASI level 1 and my CSIA level 1 & 2. Both the ski and snowboard instructors the company provide are awesome, I have learnt so much and always felt that the instructors wanted the best for me."

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 recognised around the world. 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.

Our courses in New Zealand provide training towards the New Zealand Snowsports Instructors Alliance “NZSIA” certified qualifications. There are again options to train up to Level 3, as well as compressed courses for experienced skiers wishing to reach L2 in the shortest period.

In Europe, we focus on the ‘BASI’ system, The British Association of Snow Sports Instructors. BASI is again part of the ISIA and, accordingly, recognised worldwide. It is also one of the few tickets that will let you enter the French system once having completed the speed test.
