CSIA Level 3 Boot Camps

Higher Education

CSIA Level 3 Pin

The CSIA level 3 is Canada’s internationally recognized instructor certification, and there’s no doubt about it, the exams are difficult. They’re notorious for their low pass rate.

So if Level 3 certification is your goal, this is a great opportunity to receive intensive training and mentoring from CSIA Course Conductors and Level 4 instructors.

No one can promise you will be successful on the first attempt, but if you come prepared for some hard work, and a little fun, we will do everything in our power to give you the best possible shot.

Expect to push your envelope!

Unique Location

Prepare to have a good time!

Based at Mount Washington Alpine Resort on Vancouver Island, just off Canada's west coast, our instructor training programs attract those looking to get off the beaten path.

The rugged mountain terrain on Vancouver Island serves some of Canada's best kept snow secrets, often home to the deepest snowpack on the continent. Combine this with pristine temperate rainforests, views of the ocean, and down to earth locals for a unique snow sliding experience you won’t find anywhere else.

What Is the Pathway to Level 3?

CSIA Certification Pathway

These camps are scheduled after CSIA course modules to expand on what you’ve learned during the courses and help you prepare for exams.

Boot Camp #1

  • We’ll go on an exploratory journey to understand cause and effect. We’ll experiment with the different ways our skis interact with the snow and how our body works to make those interactions happen. We’ll diagnose any technical deficiencies and develop a personalized training plan for ongoing skill development.
  • Towards the second half of the camp we’ll start to refine skills through decision training... pushing your skills and tactical choices for different objectives in increasingly challenging terrain and conditions.

Boot Camp #2

  • We’ll divide students based on skiing or teaching needs. We’ll blend all mountain ski improvement with a pedagogical approach to teacher development. We’ll start to assess each others skiing skills while ensuring everybody understands the CSIA development system.
  • In this final preparation week we’ll focus on crucial areas needed for each student to achieve their highest level of success, whether that is skiing or teacher training. For some that will mean supervised practice teaching sessions in exam like scenarios. For others it may mean ongoing skill development for specific ski off maneuvers.
