The Ski instructor life

Snowminds cooperates with the local ski school Les Elfes. With ski schools in multiple resorts in Switzerland, there is also an opportunity for you to work, if needed, in another resort during the season. Depending on your skills, you’ll get delegated to more private education or with mainly older children, adult groups, or kids camps.

From past years’ experience, Snowminds instructors with high professionalism worked already with a level 1 certification and some even without certification at the beginning of the season. During the busy holiday period it can be a lot of work, so be prepared for an active working environment!
