Casi Levels 1 & 2 Snowboard Instructor Course – Including Heli-Boarding

11 Weeks – Including Heli-Boarding – Panorama, Canada – From £6800

If you’re a winter adventurer with a desire to become a snowboard instructor and experience Heli-boarding in just 1 season, enrol on our 11 week snowboard instructor course in Panorama and gain your internationally recognised CASI level 1 and level 2 qualifications.

Over 11 weeks your riding will improve quickly and before you know you’ll be tackling powder, steeps, bumps and the snow park with style and confidence.

Back-to-back success in both level 1 and 2 courses comes from the quality and consistency of training, which you receive from some of Canada’s best Level 3 and 4 instructors. Designed for all riders, you will train and shadow Monday – Friday* and spend at least one day a week alongside Panorama Snow School giving you plenty of opportunity to refine your teaching skills. If you’ve got determination and the drive to succeed and you’re competent on European blue runs, this is the snowboard instructor course for you!

Panorama Mountain Village enjoys some of the most dramatic scenery in Canada, so you’ll be enjoying week after week of boarding on some of the most amazing terrain in the world. Plus, your accommodation is right in the village – so you can ride almost to the door.
