Schools on Snow

Previous tab Previous tab


Students love Schools on Snow because it is no ordinary ski school, it's a culture. They get to ski and ride with young professional coaches who know the mountains inside out, top to bottom.


  • Students will be supervised by our coaches for the entire day on Blackcomb and/or Whistler Mountain. Students will be escorted from the bus to the rental shop, to lunch and back to the drop-off area at the end of the day. This full supervision allows you to enjoy the mountain with other teachers or chaperones knowing that the safety of your students lies in the capable hands of specially trained Snow School staff.
  • All students ski/ride in a “session” with a coach for the entire day. The presence of a coach is mandatory.
  • Replacing the lesson, a “session” focuses on both the experience on the mountain and skill development. Our professional instructors cater to the students’ needs. Park, pipe, free riding, learning to turn - whatever they want to do.
  • Students are grouped in sessions with friends, based on ability. Skiers and snowboards can be grouped together in intermediate or advanced groups.
  • We require every student who takes in the Schools on Snow program to wear a helmet. We have more than enough helmets to outfit every student in the SOS program with a complimentary helmet regardless of whether or not they are renting any other equipment. We also have enough Wrist Guards to provide all snowboarders with them. We strongly recommend all teachers/chaperones to ride/ski with a helmet as well, and would be happy to provide you with one complimentary as well.
  • A Flaik GPS unit is worn by every student participating in the Schools on Snow program. Flaik is a real-time tracking solution for skiers and riders that not only provides extra safety, but allows participants to log their day to see what runs they were on, how much vertical was achieved and see where they want to ski in the future at Whistler Blackcomb.
  • Beginners will focus on fundamentals and will quickly become comfortable on skis or a board.

We want you and your students to have the best mountain experience possible and the key to achieving this goal is to have a group of staff dedicated exclusively to the Schools on Snow program. We operate Wednesday - Friday from December to April, with blackout dates throughout the winter season. All of our staff are specially trained on the schools program and understand the level of care required to provide a safe and fun environment for your students.


All bookings require a deposit payment of $50.00 per student (equal to the lesson-only portion of the day), which is due upon booking. Trips that have not been secured by a deposit will not be guaranteed. If a trip is not guaranteed, your space will still be held but relinquished should another school request the same date and secure the booking with a deposit. The deposit amount is non-refundable. The balance of the trip is due on your trip day.
