The Post-Instructor Course
Once a fully qualified snowboard instructor, Why Ain't You Jibbin?! recommends taking their one week Post Course. You will be provided with the training needed to take Instructor Levels 2, 3, and 4, as well as the freestyle and freeride modules.

The courses are designed to improve style, technique and overall riding ability.

Where? 11/12 Season
The 11/12 season of Why Ain't You Jibbin?! will be taking place in the Aosta Valley in Italy at the resort of Pila.

Pila has fantastic views across the Alps from Mont Blanc to Rosa, 70km of pistes and over 400 snow cannons. This little-known resort truly is an amazing place to ride, and best of all, the prices are still very reasonable!
We stay up in the village of St Nicolas in the Hotel St Nicolas. It's situated at an altitude of 1200m just 15km from Aosta and overlooks the mountain range of the Gran Paradiso National Park. The hotel is warm, cosy and welcoming. The rooms cater for 2, 3 or 4 with private facilities. With a lounge, bar and large restaurant, foosball table, free internet, tennis courts, bocce and playground right next to it it's great to keep everyone entertained.
