The Dream Team - expert tuition
We employ the most highly qualified instructors and they work directly for Ski le Gap – we are not just a branch or department of a local snow school.

All our instructors have the highest Canadian qualification and are professional coaches and course examiners – some are amongst the elite who are qualified to examine the very top (examining Level 4’s) – these instructors will be teaching you!
They are passionate about their sport and are dedicated teachers.
Every student is allocated a mentor whose job is to ensure maximum personal development and enjoyment so every student feels part of a closely-knit group within the Ski le Gap community.
All inclusive nature of courses
The all-inclusive nature of Ski le Gap is fundamental to the experience. All our students live and eat together, with all meals included 7 days a week.
The all-inclusive nature of our courses is fundamental to Ski le Gap – prices include everything shown in the ‘what’s included’ tab. This ensures everyone can do everything on offer together – you might just want a little beer money!

Live and learn a new language and culture in French Quebec
Mont Tremblant is on the East side of Canada in the French speaking province of Quebec – a true Winter Wonderland.
Although you will have the opportunity to speak French it is not essential as most people in Tremblant are bilingual. But, if you do want to improve your French we offer weekly French lessons.
The key to Ski le Gap’s success lies, without doubt, in its team of staff providing a supportive environment.
We are a family-run business operating exclusively in one resort. This enables us to deliver the best. We have 24 hour staffing onsite, and the director is in resort during the winter season, to ensure the programme exceeds all expectations.
Ski le Gap’s training program is continually being developed by Bruce Eaves, Ski le Gap’s snow director and CSIA L4 examiner. All our coaches are Level 4’s.
We have a maximum of 8 students in each class with the possibility of changing groups weekly, ensuring students remain in the group that best suits their ability. You will be allocated an instructor as a personal mentor who is responsible for providing extra support and guidance to ensure maximum progression.
This enhances the coaching process by providing invaluable personal analysis.
Full season pass provided, valid for the entire winter season.
We include the cost of examination fees for your Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors Level 1 Certification.
1 year subscription to CASI.
Specific training in first aid on the slopes.
Full accommodation in shared rooms with private bathrooms. All Ski le Gap students live together creating a great community.
Breakfast, lunch and freshly prepared evening meal is included every weekday. At the weekend, when students might like a lie-in, we provide a hot brunch and full evening meal.
Trips and Activities
Ski le Gap organises a number of different evening events and activities throughout the course - sports nights, theme nights, pub quizzes, house parties and much more!
A member of the Ski le Gap team is available 24/7. In case of emergencies a member of staff will always accompany or follow you to the clinic or hospital as necessary.
We remain a family run company and so a director will be in the resort throughout the season to ensure courses run smoothly.
Transfer to and from Montreal Airport on official course arrival and departure dates.
If you want to work as an instructor afterwards, we can guarantee job interviews at the local Tremblant snow school. We can also provide help and advice on employment elsewhere.
Students who have chosen to stay out in Tremblant after the end of their course generally group together to rent accommodation for the remaining weeks of the season. We are in resort to help you with local knowledge of what is available.
Discount available to Ski le Gap students in local shops at the mountain.

The boarding programme was awesome! Finding some of the lushest powder I have ever seen with Canada's top Riders was unforgettable. Guys - you are legends!
The food they serve is excellent
The instructors were simply brilliant!
The instruction can only be described as awesome. Ski le Gap is proud of the reputation of it's instructors and their unparalled experience - and now so are we!
My teaching skills I acquired during the course are transferrable and I was able to teach English, for a year, at Moscow’s leading private school and the Moscow State University
