During our ski instructor training courses and ski instructor internships we utilise experienced, highly certified trainers to deliver our on-snow programmes. The trainers are all senior members of the ski school and have been responsible for training, mentoring and qualifying many instructors over the years.

Our training packages are very thorough, we aim to maximise the amount of on-snow training you receive to ensure you are fully prepared for your instructor exams. The training is focussed around technique improvement, the ability to demonstrate the correct movements and progressions, and understanding how to effectively plan and deliver a lesson.

"the best coaching I've ever received"



Each of our ski instructor courses allow you the opportunity to gain internationally recognised instructor certifications. We work with a selection of ISIA sanctioned examining bodies and offer certifications from the British Association of Snowsport Instructors (BASI) in Switzerland, the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance (CSIA) in Canada, and the New Zealand Snowsports Instructors Alliance (NZSIA) in New Zealand and Japan. 

Our advanced packages are aimed at those looking to gain further qualifications and work multiple seasons as an instructor. They typically include a level 2 training package and exam, teaching children and avalanche safety certifications.


Whether your ski instructor course is a much needed break, or the start of a new career, it’s destined to be an experience you’ll never forget. Becoming a ski instructor with WE ARE SNO is more than just about skiing. Our in-resort teams are made up of dedicated programme managers and course representatives who are there to support you every step of the way. We organise regular social events, activities and team dinners over the duration of the ski instructor course.

Depending on the resort, there will be between 16-32 trainee instructors on your course, with participants typically arriving from Australia, Canada, Europe, Scandinavia and the UK.
