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

 

 

The Dream

 

Do you dream about working as a snowboard instructor at a world class ski resort? Do you want to take the first lap in the morning under the sun’s early rays sparkling over fresh powder? Maybe you want to end a day of teaching or powder hunting in a lounge 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.

 

Global Destinations 

 

Snowmind’s snowboard instructor course start with your level. Our professional coaches will develop your snowboarding skills and help you shred to depths you did not think possible. The big question is where to go. They say it’s only your imagination that sets the limits. That’s why we run Snowminds instructor training programs on 6 six different continents to help expand your mind. We know what you’re thinking… Whoaaaaa!

 

YOUR EXPERIENCE IS OUR #1 PRIORITY

 

At Snowminds, we have designed snowboard instructor courses ranging from 2 to 7 weeks, depending on your personal needs. We recommend regardless of your skill level to take a longer instructor course, so you get the most out of your gap year or career break experience both on- and off- the mountain. If you are unsure which course to choose, you can ALWAYS contact us.

 

Whichever course you pick you can count on the following with Snowminds:

 

  • A JOB GUARANTEE as a Snowboard instructor
  • Certification from an internationally recognized Ski or Snowboard 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 everything is arranged (ok, not everything, wink wink)
  • 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 and become a Snowminds Snowboard instructor.

 

"Shredding JaPOW is unreal. Every morning you wake up thinking: Damn, there's no place I'd rather be today."
