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 with the Sun Peaks Sports School prior to the CADS Course which ASSP will arrange and provide. Half price lift passes are available for those training days. After you have received your CADS Level 1, the minimum commitment required to obtain a free season’s Volunteer 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.

Lessons are 2 hours in duration with 30 minutes allocated pre and post lesson to read up about your student, and complete the lesson log following the lesson. On Saturday and Sundays, Instructor lunch time training is offered between lessons which are: 9-11am and 1-3pm.
