When interested in a season, you will have a lot of questions. Daniel was on a season last season and wrote about his Q&A experience.
Before going on a season with Snowminds, I was very much in doubt about my plans for the gap year.
I was in doubt whether I was looking for a lot of sun or snow.
Luckily, I found Snowminds through Facebook and of course, I started looking into it.
There was a lot to read on the website, but I still had more questions… How is the life of a ski instructor? How great is it?
I had a few questions, but especially both of my parents had a ton of different questions and concerns.
I researched on the Snowminds website and found an info meeting held near me, where I signed up my parents and myself.
Former Snowminds instructors told us stories about their season and about everything Snowminds has to offer.
It was a super cosy evening and my parents were happy, as they got to ask all of the questions they had.
There were a lot of other curious parents and young people. It was completely free to attend, regardless of whether you were signed up for a season or not.
The biggest takeaway was the former instructors who could tell a lot of fun stories. It was reassuring to talk to former instructors as they could tell things from a personal perspective, where you got a feel for what it means to be a ski or snowboard instructor with Snowminds.
I left the event in a good mood and finished writing my application the very next day.
Daniel is one of the Snowminds Team Leaders for the 19/20 season. He will be going to Apex with his best friend, Lucas in the 19/20 season.
