Those looking for an introduction into the instructor industry or to improve their skills with limited time off.

We ask that you are a Level 3 or above on our ability scale. Generally having 3-4 weeks on snow prior to the course is enough, and the most important thing is a good attitude to improving and learning new skills!

A Level 1 instructor in Canada will earn around $12 an hour, but there are options for tips in Canada. The best thing about working in Canada is the quantity of lessons you are likely to get, the ability to practice your teaching in a friendly environment, and the free training you will get every day from the Ski School and other instructors. It is a great fun place to work!
