How to become a ski instructor

Working as a ski instructor is quite possibly one of the coolest jobs in the world. Who wouldn’t want to spend a winter season teaching in a snowy paradise, with the mountains as your office doing something that you love.

There are many different ways to become a ski instructor and gain a ski instructor certification. The vast majority of people look toward a training provider for a comprehensive, managed, all-inclusive package. There are multiple providers on the market who offer a variety of program and certification options. Most, if not all of these providers will help you achieve your certification. But the truth is (and this is IMPORTANT); very few will have the resources to place you into an actual employment position afterwards.

Over the past decade the demand for ski school jobs has been rising steadily, with large numbers of people looking for a lifestyle change and a career on the slopes. Each season, ski schools are inundated with CV’s from newly qualified ski instructors on the hunt for that elusive first season of employment.
