4-week CSIA or CASI Level 1 instructor course in Whistler Blackcomb


For ski or snowboarding enthusiasts who would like to develop their skills, Oyster offer a fantastic and detailed programme which enables you to gain a Level 1 ski or snowboard instructor qualification whilst enjoying the slopes of Whistler for 4 weeks.

You also have the opportunity to take the AST (Avalanche Skills Training) Level 1 course and become competent in customer service, communications, injury prevention, equipment tuning and boot fitting. 

You don't need to be the best skier/boarder in the world to participate, we just ask that you feel comfortable on red runs in Europe or blue runs in North America.

Accommodation is very comfortable in spacious chalets located within easy reach of the slopes. You have access to shared communal areas looking out on to a sun deck. You have the choice of 6 delicious continental breakfast and hot dinners each week or self-catering if you prefer.

This is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy one of the most beautiful and vibrant places in the world, meet new people and return home with knowledge and advanced skills in your favourite sport! 

Highlights include:

  • CSIA/CASI Level 1
  • Recreational Avalanche Courses AST1
  • Snow park training
  • Whistler Blackcomb Season Ski Pass
  • Over 20 hours of professional training per week
  • Training given by CSIA/CASI Level 4 instructors
  • Small groups to maximise your training
  • Resort rep available 24/7

Canada has a limited number of work visas each year and competition is high.  The great thing about this programme is that you only need a tourist visa - obtainable on arrival. 

The cost of this programme, for 4 weeks, is £3540 based on sharing a room with three other people and being self-catered. (other accommodation and a catered option is also available).

Our end-of-season March course is even better value. Based on recent years, this is still an awesome time to enjoy the snow in Whistler and is a very popular course. Book your place soon to avoid disapointment! The March course costs from £2640 (sharing with 3 others and self-catered).
