Nonstop Adventure is a family-run company with a passion for the mountains, the ocean, and adventure. Whether you're on a gap year, career break, career change or holiday, we provide the experience of a lifetime in some the world's greatest locations.
We believe that learning is about the most satisfying activity you can do... whether it's learning how to ski waist deep powder, land your first 360, or catch a 6ft wave. The high you feel when you accomplish something you've long dreamt of doing is hard to beat.
Adventure provides something similar; it takes you to new places, pushes your limits, and can even change your outlook on life.
Through a mix of professional coaching, world renowned destinations and unique activities, our courses provide the highs of learning and the thrill of adventure - all in a super social group environment.
The Nonstop experience is as much about the people you'll meet as it is about the progression you'll make or the certifications you'll gain.
Our instructors, guides, and course hosts are all inspiring and charismatic people who are eager to share their passion with you and help you achieve your goals.
There's a great social atmosphere created on all Nonstop courses by a like-minded group of fun loving clients. Typically our clients fit into one of the following groups:
Whether you're skiing, snowboarding or surfing, you'll always have more fun without crowds. We live in a busy, highly populated world so its inevitable that some destinations - usually those close to major airports - are going to get slammed.
We specialise in seeking out the less well known gems, places that offer amazing conditions but where you don't have to fight for them. Not only will you enjoy more of the best conditions but the possibility of adventure is far greater.
Places like Fernie and Red Mountain offer some of the deepest snow and most exciting terrain and can often feel like private mountains reserved just for Nonstop! Banff has three ski resorts together offering more terrain than any other ski area, and Taghazout, Morocco is a far cry from the crowded lineups of the Gold Coast or Bali.
