If you're a confident advanced skier and interested in becoming a Snow School Instructor, this program is for you!

The Instructor-in-Training (IIT) Program is designed to combine elements of the Volunteer Program and 9-weeks of lessons with a senior level instructor to prepare you for your Professional Ski Instructors of Canada (PSIC) Level 1.

The IIT team will work closely with the Snow School Instructor team throughout the season. IITs will attend pre-season training and are scheduled in accordance with their submitted availability. IITs have the opportunity for Chicopee to cover the cost of their Instructor Certification* (held at Chicopee by the PSIC on Mar 1 & 2, 2025) at the end of the program.

Benefits of joining the IIT program:

  • Share your passion for the sport
  • Opportunity to train with our Snow School Team
  • Complete your community involvement hours
  • Opportunity to get paid to do what you love by joining the Chicopee Snow School Team in future seasons!

*+HST, all sales are final. To qualify for Chicopee to cover the cost of the Level 1 assessment day, IITs are required to commit to a minimum of 2 weeknights and 1 weekend shift throughout the 9-week lesson program time. Shifts are a minimum of 3 hours long. IITs must have a shift attendance record of at least 88%. IITs are required to adhere to all Chicopee Policies and Procedures. In accordance with our Terms & Conditions, Chicopee reserves the right to move or remove program participants.

NOTE: If Chicopee cancels your weekly lesson, you will be notified, and the lesson program will be extended by one (1) week at the same day and time. [Week of MAR 10 to 16, 2025].

If Chicopee cannot deliver your 9-week lesson program within the allocated 10 weeks (more than one cancellation), you will be notified, and the lesson will be credited (prorated value) to your account. This credit may be used for any Chicopee purchase.
