Ski/Snowboard Instruction

Ski/Snowboard Instruction courses are perfect for those of you who dream of spending all winter on the mountain. With a course in this area, you will have the best of both worlds. You’ll learn how you can transfer your love of snow sports into a paid profession. In addition, you will get the chance to show others what you love about the snow and the best skills and techniques to make the most of a good season.

With New Zealand’s tourism industry booming and travellers coming far and wide to experience our picturesque ski slopes, there are always roles open for trained ski instructors. Because there are few snow instructor programmes in New Zealand, studying in this area gives you an edge above other skiers. Programmes balance theoretical with practical learning; this means you will get the chance to practice giving lessons as you learn. When it is time to graduate therefore, you will be well prepared to take the lead as the sole teacher. Becoming a ski or snowboard instructor is fun and rewarding, with the chance to meet people from all across the world.
