Their main focus is to give you a give experience, whether its daily training, pancake breakfast or a weekly Karaoke night. Yeap, Canada is amazing and we guarantee that you will go home after winter feeling like you are leaving a new family and a magical place.

The season typically goes from November to April, afterwards you have the opportunity to travel around Canada and USA,  or even go together with some other Snowminds instructors and join our legendary end of season trip in Hawaii or something completely different.
