Taking a Snowboard Instructor Course

Have you ever thought about living the dream, becoming a snowboard instructor and travelling the world?  Well Canada is certainly the place to start with endless runs, steeps, tress and untracked powder; you will fall in love and never want to leave.  Whistler is the biggest of the Canadian resorts with the highest vertical drop in North America, over 8100 ridable acres and an average snowfall of 33 feet making it one of the best places to ride, work and gain a snowboard certification. 

So how do you get started?

The first step is to train and pass your instructor certification. Once certified, you could be spending half the year living and working in The Northern hemisphere and the other half down south such as New Zealand and South America living the endless winter.
