Ski with the Pros Workshop Information

If you have joined us before, you'll know that the Ski with the Pros adult improvement workshop is the best way to start the season. Take your skiing to the next level in the hands of some of Canada's top level 4 instructors and enjoy a weekend full of après, good food and great company.

Why choose Ski with the Pros?

Beyond the great snow and wonderful people that have been the hallmark of this program for more than 30 years, are the coaches themselves. Ski With the Pros refers to your opportunity to “ski with” the best ski Pro-fessionals in the business. Ski with the Pros is coached exclusively by Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance Level 4’s. You might be asking yourself, “so what?”, well it's the expertise of these coaches that sets the workshop apart from any other ski camp out there.

The CSIA Level 4 accreditation is one of the most respected in the ski teaching world. Built on the CSIA’s 80 year history the Level 4 is the pinnacle in terms of technical understanding and guest service. It is more than just an in depth understanding of skiing technique but most importantly the ability to communicate that information meaningfully to maximize learning. Not unlike achieving a PhD in any field, the Level 4 has followed a similar path of education, practical experience, and experimentation, typically taking a minimum of 10 years to achieve this high standard.

The three day experience is broken into 6 different sessions that naturally build on the skills learnt in the one before.
