The Dream


Do you dream about a job as a snowboard instructor at a world class ski resort? Do you want to take the morning’s first ride under the sun’s early rays sparkling over fresh powder? Maybe you want to end a day of instructor training or powder hunting in a lounger with a cold beer? How about making new friends from all over the world, while drastically improving your snowboarding technique? And what about wearing that shining red instructor’s uniform, where you teach snowboarders from just about everywhere? Maybe that’s something you might be, you know, a bit interested in?

We thought so.
