The NTSC snowboard instructor team is certified by the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors (CASI) and is led by Technical Director, Jason Hewitt- CASI Level 3, CASI Park Instructor and CASI Carving Instructor.
Our ski school uses five levels to determine ability of students. The purpose is to facilitate group lessons with similar ability, pace and improvement goals - which makes those lessons the most productive and the most fun. You can track your development in your Progress Book. Your instructor will fill in the book at the end of your lesson with your goal and strategies for improvement. When you are ready for the next level, your instructor will make the recommendation and inform you of next steps.
During the season snowboard clinics are open to members. When booking your day trip online, please select the clinics you would like to sign up for. Please note that helmets are mandatory for all snowboard clinics.
