Beginning this winter, Mont-Sainte-Anne resort east of Quebec City will offer the Rookie Academy program, an exclusive training program for future ski and snowboard instructors.

Founded in New Zealand, The Rookie Academy has awarded one of its training programs to Mont-Sainte-Anne. The resort will now see to the training of future ski instructors from Levels 1 to 3, and will be the only ski resort in Canada to offer Level 4 training.

The program is only offered elsewhere at Copper Mountain, Colorado and at Treble Cone at home in New Zealand. The programs last from five to 13 weeks in length and include guided tours of the area and immersion activities in Quebec City, as well as an array of Canadian winter adventures such as dog-sledding, snowshoeing, hockey games and a visit to Quebec’s world famous Winter Carnival.

Courses also include meals and accommodation in modern chalets for the duration of stay, a season pass at Mont-Sainte-Anne, transportation to the resort, all transfers from the Quebec City airport, training four days a week, video analysis of technique, CSIA membership, career development and job placement via the Rookie Academy’s global ski school network.
