Ive always loved snowboarding and this course was an opportunity to do that on a daily basis. Its hard not to enjoy yourself when you put us in one of the most beautiful places in the world with some of greatest snow imaginable. The course is fantastic, I definitely didn’t expect it to be this much fun. Everything has been super easy going and I would 100% recommend it to anyone else.

The WE ARE SNO instructor course is an extremely comprehensive and exciting path into the snowsports industry. With extensive, on-snow training from experienced trainers, a guaranteed job offer, round-the-clock support from the course manager and great accommodation. You won’t find a better course for such a good price. If you are interested in teaching snowboarding or skiing, I couldn’t recommend this more.

One of the main reasons I choose We Are Sno was actually the design and ease of use of the website. The customer experience was impressive and any communication answered very promptly. Everything about the course has been fantastic, especially the accommodation, training and quality of snow. The social aspect has also been a big plus, going out for meals and drinks as a group was great for learning about the culture.

Deciding to train with We Are Sno was one of the best decisions of my life. Not only are the trainers extremely experienced and knowledgeable, but what really sets the company apart is the group setting and sense of community before, during and after the course. If you decide to train with We Are Sno you will meet an interesting, motivated and diverse group of people from all over the world.
