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.
Ski le Gap instructors are handpicked from the best in Canada. 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!
Extensive social programme
Nightly socials, weekend trips and activities make every minute of your time with Ski le Gap busy and action packed.
Weekends are either filled with trips away from Tremblant to experience the Canadian culture or a host of crazy events and activities. Imagine partying it up during a Karaoke contest, a themed 70’s Night, or dancing on the tables of the Caribou bar…
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.
Work experience opportunity
Students can put their certificate to work during the course with an opportunity to become a real instructor for a week and teach at Tremblant’s Snow School.
Putting an internationally recognised teaching qualification into practice is an invaluable experience. It gives you communication skills, self-confidence and leadership skills. This looks great on your CV!
Internationally recognised ski qualifications
We offer the chance to gain a variety of internationally recognised qualifications and certificates.
Train with the highest qualified instructors to gain up to 7 qualifications and certificates. The more you achieve the more you feel good about yourself, and the better your CV looks.
