How many people do you take on your gap years each year?

Each year we work with resorts all over the world to provide paid internships. Each resort takes between 3 and 5 interns per season to ensure everyone can join the full time employment roster. Other companies will hire up to 20+ interns per resort, and don't guarantee to be working full time.

Why are you a good company to travel or work with?

Completely new to the ski and snowboard instructor world? No worries, our level 1 instructor internships are designed to train you from being a holiday skier to a level 1 instructor in 3 weeks - and then you have a guaranteed job with the sports school for the rest of the season. All jobs are real, full time, paid jobs - no working for free on a Winter Sports Company internship.

Already a level 2 instructor? We have level 3 internships in New Zealand and Canada. These internships are designed to boost your teaching experience and gain the skills required to make the jump to level 3. You'll be mentored by top instructors in the sports school and receive dedicated level 3 training.
