The Apprentice Instructor Program is an exclusive program that must be applied for. Mt Seymour is looking for those who are committed to becoming instructors of the future at Mt Seymour. Participants must be a minimum of 15 years old by March 1, 2023.

Apprentice Instructor

This Program is an 8-week commitment with 1.75 hours of on-snow training per week. It will focus on improving your skiing or riding technique to meet the CSIA and CASI level 1 standards, along with your teaching and assessment skills to make you a better instructor. Program participants will have the opportunity to achieve their volunteer hours working with our Bear Cub programs on the weekends. This will allow program participants to learn from our snow pros in a real lesson environment.
