Why Canada

It's one incredibly large winter playground when the snow starts falling and boy does it fall. Sometimes we wonder if someone up there forgot to flick the switch off. Theres the incredible vast scenery and wonderful mountain ranges, but the big draw to Canada during the winter period is the snow. In particular the snow that falls in British Columbia. It's why we chose Canada to be our destination of choice for snowboard courses.

Obviously the snow is important to us, but it's the complete package that Canada has to offer which makes it such an ideal location. The people are fantastic, super hospitable, friendly and sick snowboarders. You would expect them to be with a mountain range on almost every door step. They make for some of the worlds best snowboard instructors you can find and their expertise not only attracts students, but fellow snowboard instructors from around the world looking to further develop their own skills whilst learning with the best. 

Why Canada image

If you have not been to Canada snowboarding then you are missing out. We can’t stress how much you are going to love this country. The quality of the snow in British Columbia where we run our courses is out of this world. You will find yourself at multiple times during our courses putting in big pow slashes and charging deep deep pow! The whole vibe of the place is super chilled and the scenery is breathtaking. Its a beautiful place. We fell in love and made it our goal to get people to experience what a truly amazing place Canada is through a sport we love.

CASI Snowboard Qualifications

Its important to get an understanding of what exactly you are getting out of your snowboard instructor course from a qualification point of view. What qualifications are there, how can they benefit you and most importantly where could you choose to take them for employment.

Deciding on Canada as a destination and NothinButSnow as your course provider will result in one heluva trip, but it also results in students of the course gaining canadian snowboard qualifications or CASI qualifications for short. With so many types of recognised qualifications around the world, making a choice to go for CASI is a sensible and viable option. They are extremely well respected and recognised globally within the snow sports industry.

Holding the CASI Level 1 enables you to be eligible to work in Canada, America, Andorra or UK snow domes. Those that partied hard through the season yet stayed focused and determined to bag their CASI Level 2 qualification means that not only can you work in Canada, but in New Zealand, Australia, USA and Japan. Holding the Park Instructor qualification is a great addition to your Level 1 or 2, allowing you teach to freestyle snowboarding lessons.
