Level 1 and 2 Training
120 hours of on snow training is provided by CSIA level 3 & 4 instructors. Level 1 and 2 course conductors mentor the programme, take training and provide tailored one-to-one feedback as you prepare for the exams.
CSIA Level 1 ski instructor exam
The level 1 CSIA course and exam is included in the price. The course runs for 3 days with the first 2 days dedicated to instruction and the final day put aside for the on snow assessment.
CSIA Level 2 Development Modules and Exams
There are 2 separate 2-day modules to complete before taking the L2 exams. Each module is provided by the CSIA and helps to fine-tune both your skiing and teach technique, and are fantastic non-assessed courses. The 2-day CSIA L2 exam is scheduled for the final week. Both modules and exam are scheduled into your 8 weeks and included in the price, they can be removed should you wish to just train ($935)
Included in the course is the Canadian Avalanche Level 1 course, which will help prepare you for the hazards associated with going off-piste.
All participants have the opportunity and are encouraged to shadow the sports school on days off from pro-coaching. Shadowing real lessons helps prepare trainees for exams and provides observational experience in a mountain environment.
After the level 2 exams, an optional guided heli-skiing trip (approx cost £660) is arranged with RK Heli-ski at the end of the course. All heli-skiing equipment is provided (powder skis/poles) and powder-pack including transceiver and other back-country equipment.
Take the easy trip up to the T bowl, for your first off piste and powder run.
