Check out some of the best ski and snowboard instruction and improvement camps and programs at Whistler and save with travelplan discounts.
There’s a reason Whistler Blackcomb is regularly voted the #1 ski resort in North America. Over 8000 acres of skiable terrain is one reason, a thriving ski in ski out village is another.
Then there’s the snow. Last season Whistler Blackcomb surpassed its average annual snowfall of 11.6 metres by March with another month and then some left of the season.
Now is the time to hit up Whistler Blackcomb after last season’s record snowfalls with talk of a repeat this coming season. Thanks to an innovative ski school, the resort is also one of the best places to learn to ski, improve your skiing or expand your snow skills with lessons, camps and programs. Book through Travelplan and save.
Small group adult ski & snowboard lessons
The Max 4 Adult means no more than four people per instructor so you get personalised attention. If you don’t have the cash for a private then this is the next best thing.
There’s nothing better than a one on one lesson with an instructor who knows their stuff to fast track you to your next level of skiing or boarding. Choose a ski pro based on language, gender, certification and more.
