Skiing Internships

Great jobs Vs. mediocre jobs…

Winter resorts are renowned for their more expensive lifestyle. Even employees who get the benefit of cheap or free accommodation, discounts around town and access to cheap gear and lift passes can find it challenging to support themselves throughout the winter season. That’s why it is so important to choose employment that will allow you to support yourself and find work that is more than just a ‘job’.

It’s better to be an instructor…

Unless you’re passionate about cleaning, cooking and working 12+ hours a day, a winter job as a paid ski or snowboard instructor is a much more appealing option! Of the 386 EA Ski and Snowboard Interns last winter, 86% returned to work at the same or another ski resort in the 12 months following their course, and 64% of our trained instructors in the last 5 years have gone on to do at least 3 or more winter seasons! There are so many more travel and work opportunities for instructors, especially for those who have a season working under their belt. Instructors get respect from the wider resort community when representing the snow sports department in the instructor uniform and it is an extremely fun and social lifestyle so it’s easy to see how people can get hooked!
