The first commitment is that you get your CADS Level 1 certification. This means 2 full days of on-snow training and one (Friday) evening of classroom training. The on-snow training takes place on weekend days. If you do not already have CSIA or CASI Level 1 certification you will be required to participate in 6 hours of CASI/CSIA teaching methodology on-snow training as well. After you have received your CADS Level 1, the minimum commitment required to obtain a free season’s pass is 100 hours/20 days on-snow volunteering. We also offer opportunities to volunteer for those who cannot commit to the full 100 hours.
