Pro's in Training

Pro in Training

Want to learn how to become a ski instructor but not sure where to start? Then we have the program for you!

If you are age 14 to 18 as of the start date and a strong parallel skier who can ski at a controlled speed down a blue run then this program is an opportunity to realize your dream of becoming a ski instructor! Being a former participant of the Ski & Board School Free Ride program, Big White Freestyle team or Big White Ski Club is a bonus but not a requirement.

This consecutive nine (9) week program runs concurrently with our Free Ride Program. The program will provide the participants with the opportunity for hands-on experience, helping our instructors organize children in the mornings, shadowing our instructors’ teaching, helping with lunch, and learning about snow policies and procedures. Then each afternoon, the participants attend our structured training program where one of our trainers (CSIA Level 1 Course Conductor) introduces them to the CSIA's innovative, effective skiing techniques and teaching methods.
