SnowSkool Instructor Courses in New Zealand
Cardrona, New Zealand
SNOWBOARD & SKI INSTRUCTOR COURSE RESORT GUIDE
SnowSkool boss Phil Purdie will tell anyone who listens that his life plan is to sell SnowSkool for £100 million and move to Wanaka. Where £100 million may be completely ridiculous, the prospect of moving to Wanaka is not. There is something about Wanaka; it is stunningly beautiful...situated on a vast, clear lake and surrounded by snow-capped peaks, the people are super-friendly...always keen to chat and find out where you’re from/ where you’re going, the lifestyle is perfect...world-class skiing, sailing, mountain biking as well as cracking restaurants, bars and nightclubs. We defy you not to love Wanaka!
Up at the hill, Cardrona offers arguably the best skiing and snowboarding in New Zealand or possibly the southern hemisphere. With diverse terrain and NZ’s highest lift-served skiing, you can be sure of some wonderful riding during your ski instructor course or snowboard instructor course. The instructor training course leads to the qualifications of the NZSIA (New Zealand Ski Instructors’ Association) or SBINZ (Snowboard Instructors of New Zealand) which are well-respected throughout the world.
Train between July and September, start working in November!
Joining the SnowSkool ski instructor course or snowboard instructor course in New Zealand allows you to train in the northern hemisphere summer and be fresh and ready to begin working as a ski instructor/ snowboard instructor as soon as the northern hemisphere winter starts. Graduates from the SnowSkool NZ course have gone on to work in resorts in countries including Andorra, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Germany, Italy, Norway, the mighty Scotland, Switzerland and the USA.

“Friday night in Wanaka is “jug fine night” – when all the SnowSkool snowboarders and our trainers meet in HQ bar to pore over the week’s riding. The jugs of beer are bought by those who screw up during the week – bad wastes, swearing in class, turning up late etc. I got away scotch free last night but the previous week, I had to buy four jugs! Saturday was spent in Queenstown, just 45 minutes from where we stay. What an amazing place that is...so much to do – in the morning we went bungee jumping at the famous Pipeline. Shaking like a shitting dog, I was! For lunch, I went to Fergburger with a few of the boys – only a couple of the bigger lads were able to finish their burgers as they were so big! In the afternoon, we did a luge run which was super-scary too! Queenstown’s got a lot going on in the evening too and we started off with a game of killer pool in the Altitude bar before heading on...”
