Instructor Training Academy

Join us for two days of exploration and learning. Find out if this could be the job of your dreams!

The Snowbird Mountain School is conducting a hiring academy to fill instructor positions for the 2015-2016 season. The “Instructor Training Academy” will evaluate and provide coaching for communication skills, guest service awareness, teaching skills and skiing/riding skills. Not sure if teaching is for you? No worries, this course will offer plenty of coaching and personal feedback to get your season started on the right track.

Junior instructors are welcome to join our academy (Session 1 only). Ages 15 through 17 (must turn 15 before December 1 for the season of employment) We are looking for mature, responsible teens who are interested in learning about ski instruction and love working with children. Participants will get personal feedback on their own skiing and learn what it takes to be a ski instructor (Note: we don’t hire junior snowboard instructors at this time). If you are wondering where to take your skiing next, and want to spend some weekends with small children, give us a try!
