Being a ski or snowboard instructor looks different for everyone:
Part-time instructors teach only a few days a week, perhaps just on weekends.
Full-time instructors teach during the entire season, including weekends and holidays.
Some instructors prefer teaching beginners or children.
Others prefer teaching on a competitive level.
All instructors want to inspire a lifelong passion for skiing and snowboarding!
“I enjoy getting people to realize their potential both on and off snow. Skiing is a great vessel to highlight someone’s potential.”
“From the PyeongChang, South Korea Paralympics to running a snowsports school in New Zealand, teaching snowsports has taken me all over the world.”
“I got my first gig instructing snowboarding at Marquette Mountain in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for the free pass that came along with the job. After my first lesson, I was hooked and have been teaching ever since.”
“The best part of teaching is helping guests discover they can ski and learn new movement patterns.”
