Job Details

Qualify as a Canadian CASI Level 1 and 2 Snowboard Instructor during our intensive 11 week course at Marmot Basin in Jasper, Alberta. Marmot has the highest base elevation of all resorts in Canada and is a great place to enjoy the famous ‘champagne powder’.

On our 11 week course you will get 240 hours + of training from fully qualified Level 4 instructors. You will pass your Level 1 examination and work through the modules of training towards your Level 2 before taking the exam towards the end of the 11 weeks. Every day, you will cover various aspects of snowboarding; from bumps and slalom to off-piste, steeps and snow-park training. You will also become competent in:

  • Customer Service,
  • Communications,
  • Injury prevention,
  • Equipment Tuning,

What experience do I need? You must feel comfortable snowboarding down red runs in Europe or blues in North America. Your skills and technique will dramatically improve over the course of 11 weeks.

Accommodation You’ll be living in the town of Jasper (20 minutes from Marmot) in hotel twin-room accommodation. The room is spacious and has free WiFi. There are daily transfers included (even on the days you are not training!). With your season long lift pass, you are able to get the mountain 7 days a week!
