Snow Academy work with YES, Whistler's leading ski instructor school and are focused on offering the creme de la creme courses. We have concluded that the very best courses are in the worlds number one resort, Whistler where we work with YES, Whistler's leading ski instructor school.

Snow Academy, previously International Academy, was one of the first British companies to specialise in provided courses leading to ski and snowboarders instructor qualifications. Originally we offered courses in Banff, Lake Louise and Whistler Blackbomb. These were all great options but over the years we've watched the courses develop and listened to the hundreds of instructors who have qualified on ski and snowboard courses we run. We have also offered ski instructor courses in Switzerland, Austria, France and even New Zealand.
