Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a safe and positive experience in the Canadian Rockies that promotes personal growth, discovery and adventure. Timberline Academy strives to deliver an educational environment in which students learn the necessary skills required to work and build a career in the Canadian ski and snowboard industry.

Timberline Canadian Alpine Academy is a post-secondary outdoor adventure school located in the heart of Banff National Park. Timberline was founded with the purpose of training students to become well-rounded outdoor professionals in a leadership capacity.

In the wintertime our programs focus on ski/snowboard instructor training, mountain rescue, avalanche science, backcountry skiing and leadership training.
In the Spring/Summer we turn our focus to Whitewater Canoe/Raft Guide Training and Mountaineering Skills Training. Both of these programs incorporate several certifications and exceptional expeditions throughout Canada’s National Park system.
