The Instructor Training Program now in its fifth year, runs for two consecutive weekends beginning on Saturday, March 11. The program is for both aspiring ski and snowboard instructors and for good skiers and riders seeking to improve their own performance on the mountain.

Cannon Mountain’s Instructor Training Program runs on Saturdays and Sundays for two consecutive weekends with training both in the morning and afternoon. Trainers include the most experienced Cannon Mountain instructors and supervisors.
