Snow School Updates:

Our Snow School continues to strengthen and develop with the following notable items added to our programming in recent years:

During regular season day trips, NTSC offers morning lessons which our members are welcome to take every day they join us on the hill.   Our renowned All-Day Beginner Program is offered for the first 4 - 6 weeks of the season to ensure everyone kick-starts the season ready for maximum fun and enjoyment. 

Race Daya long standing club favourite is also planned towards the end of the season. 

Where do i start?

For Downhill Skiing, we follow the CSIA's Ski Step ability system, ranging from steps 0 - 9. 

For Snowboarding, we offer 5 levels of coaching and teaching - Never-Ever, Beginner, Novice, Intermediate and Advanced

Lessons & Coaching

NTSC has one of the largest and most highly qualified ski schools in Canada! Whether you're just starting out, are an expert, or somewhere in between, our CSIA/CASI certified instructors have the right lesson for you. Helmets are required to participate in lessons.

Ski and snowboard lessons are offered on most day trips. 
** Note that on Wednesday day trips, snowboard lessons will only be available if there is availability of  instructors, and therefore snowboard lessons are not guaranteed.

We want you to get the most out of your lesson, so we group students with similar ability, pace and improvement goals. What step are you? 


The perfect place to start.
