Do it for sure man. I did my level 1 this year and it was with some people that had barely skied at all in there lives and weren't even doing the snow school(you will be trained for like a month before you have to do your level 1) and they passed easy. Lake Louise is a riot, better then Banff if your keen on actually shredding alot. We are only an hour away from Kicking horse which is epic. It is a small town but there is plenty of partying, and its an awesome community anyday you want to go skiing if you hangout at the base for a littlewhile you will run into someone to shred with. Just finished our season today though your snow school thing will most likely be done in april.
Only thing I have to say is be open minded and don't get stuck/be a little rich bratty entitled kid. Like 50% of the people I've met in that program are super cool and still friends after 2 seasons and the other 50% are just stuck up little bitches.
oh yeah id much rather spend a season with friends skiing but thats not really an option, im not really friends with anyone that skiis except for one and i dont think he would be all that keen considering the cost.
i cant afford to go over for a season just by myself, and my aunty has agreed to pay for it if i do a course-type thing whereas she would just tell me to fuck off if i wanted the cash just to chill and ski.
