The day-to-day life of a trainee on one of SnowSkool’s snowboard instructor courses is far from humdrum! You’ll spend your winters at our training centres and shredding the slopes of some of the world’s best hills – Banff and Big White in Canada, Three Valleys in France, Big Sky in USA and Cardrona in New Zealand. And when you become a snowboard instructor, you will have a ticket to ride throughout the world and to get paid for the pleasure! SnowSkool operates a recruitment database with access to over 150 Snowboard Schools in fourteen countries and so we can help you to find work as a snowboard instructor and indulge your passion for a lifetime. The only problem remains; which SnowSkool snowboard instructor course for you?
Snowboard Instructor Course
From 2 weeks to 13 weeks
SnowSkool’s short snowboard instructor courses last for two, three or five weeks depending on location. They are ideal for those who are restricted by budget or time…you’ll train for your Level 1 qualification which can lead to work as a snowboard instructor in snowdomes in the UK as well as at some smaller hills. Some do the Level 1 in one season and return to SnowSkool to do their Level 2 the following season.
More popular are SnowSkool’s season-long snowboard instructor courses which last for a minimum of nine weeks. Level 2 is a whole big step up from Level 1 and allows you to work as a snowboard instructor internationally as well as making the most of life as a seasonnaire and working on all aspects of your riding – freestyle, off-piste and backcountry.
What's Hot ...
Three Valleys 2012
In the US snowboarding community, Big Sky is regarded as a training ground for Alaska. What does that mean? Well…basically if you fancy taking your life into your hands by riding near vertical, 4000ft descents in Alaska, you want to make sure your skills on the board are up to scratch. And where do you train yourself…that’s right, Big Sky. With 5500 acres of crazy terrain, 35ft of snow per year and 4350ft of vertical, you can get used to a life of steeps and deeps. If it helps, the training is fantastic, the bars are rocking and SnowSkool puts on luuuverly slope-side condos.
