Ucluelet and the Pacific Rim National Park… Vancouver Island, Canada

What is It?: Bonus Surf Week

Surfing? I thought this was a ski or snowboard instructor course?

It’s Section 8 tradition… Graduating from our Snowsport Leadership Training programs wouldn’t be complete without a trip across the island for days of surfing and relaxing on the magnificent beaches of Vancouver Island’s West Coast. We are pretty proud of our island paradise and I can’t think of a better way to unwind and ease your aching muscles after your ski or snowboard instructor exams and epic backcountry adventures.

If surfing isn’t your thing it is still an awesome way to end the season as the scenery is spectacular and the wildlife abundant. You can indulge in plenty of other activities too such as whale watching or sea kayaking, golfing, fishing… the list goes on.

For SLT – Explorer participants this week is FREE and included in your package. For participants of the standard SLT and other Section 8 courses you can add the bonus surf week to your itinerary for an additional supplement…. we’d love for you to join the party!
