A winter season as a ski instructor Down Under

From Summer to Winter


You go to Australia to experience something different. As an instructor in the land Down Under, tropical paradise is quickly turning into snowy mountain peaks. The popular beaches, the vast desert wilderness areas and wild kangaroos are disappearing soon after you experience skiing in Australia for the first time. Against that background, we are super stoked to assist experienced instructors with the prefect combo: Snow + Surf = The Good Life In Australia.




The Ski Instructor Life in Australia


When we have a summer back home in the northern hemisphere, Australians find skiing and snowboarding in the mountainous Kosciuszko National Park, which is well located between Sydney and Melbourne. Here, we partner with the best resorts Australia has to offer, ensuring our ski instructors an experience from late June to late August – or longer – if the season permits. It is a unique experience that only a few people have on their CV.

Subsequently you can choose to travel around Australia and for example. go surfing or travel along the coast. The possibilities are endless, and we help you through your entire journey, allowing you to fly home with an experience in your luggage that will stand as one of the most memorable experiences of your life.
