BECOME A SKI INSTRUCTOR

Carve your future in Austria, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and more.

The Dream

 

Do you have a dream about working as a ski instructor at a world class ski resort? Do you want to take the first ride in the morning with the sun’s early rays sparkling over fresh powder? Maybe you want to end a day of skiing in a lounge with a cold beer? How about making new friends from all over the world on your gap year or career break while drastically improving your skiing technique? And what about wearing that shining red instructor’s uniform, where you teach skiers from just about everywhere? Maybe that’s something you might be, you know, a bit interested in?

We thought so.

 

 

Global Destinations

 

All Snowminds ski instructor courses starts with your level. Our professional coaches will develop your skills and help you shred to depths you did not think possible. The big question is where to go. They say it’s only the imagination that sets limits. That is why we run our  ski instructor training programs on 6 different continents to help expand your mind. Wanna shred long slopes and experience après ski as a certified ski instructor in Austria, or experience the champagne powder and boundless wilderness in a winter season in Canada, or the deepest and freshest pow of a ski season in Japan, these and many more top ski destinations are waiting for you.

 

"I do believe this experience changed me. Not only did I discover a whole new sport, but meeting so many people from different places really expands your world... It's hard to give up this life."

- Marcus, Snowminds Instructor

YOUR EXPERIENCE IS OUR #1 PRIORITY

 

We have designed our ski instructor courses from 2 to 7 weeks to meet your personal needs. Regardless of your ski level, we recommend you take a longer ski instructor course to get the most out of your ski season both on- and off the mountain. If you are unsure which course to choose, you can ALWAYS contact us.

 

Whichever instructor course you pick, you can count on the following:

 

  • A JOB GUARANTEE as a ski instructor
  • Certification from an internationally recognized Ski Instructor Association (Austrian Level 1-2, Canadian CSIA, etc.)
  • Arranged accommodation, lift pass and training
  • A strong community of new friends
  • A total experience where pretty much everything is arranged
  • Confidence in an experienced company, which is a member of the Travel Guarantee Fund
  • A Snowminds team that supports you all the way!

 

Basically, we take care of the practicalities – all you have to do is pack your suitcase and good vibes so you can start shredding powder as a  new Snowminds instructor.
