We’re here to connect and inspire.

What started as a passion for giving gappers an awesome life skill, has turned into 30 amazing seasons on the slopes of Mont Tremblant.

More than our name, a way of life.

When we started in 1994 we set out to create the best gap year instructor course anywhere in the world. Granted, we were the first in the world to do it, so there was nothing to beat, but that didn’t stop us thinking of every way possible to make Ski le Gap an essential part of every gap year.

Our roots

We built our roots in the picturesque resort of Mont Tremblant, Canada for its varied terrain and friendly, authentic and down to earth vibe where you’ll feel right at home – erfect for learning to become a ski or snowboard instructor on a gap year adventure.

From there we assembled the very best instructors, absolute elites in their field, and made a commitment to operating in one resort so our gappers could have access to all of the best people, both on and off-piste.

Present day

Fast-forward 30 years and this is still how we do things, a welcoming atmosphere, a close-knit family, incredibly experienced instructors and an awesome social life.

We’re always developing and improving what we offer, and Mont Tremblant resort itself just keeps getting better and better.
