Training in New Zealand as part of a Gap Year
Many interns tell us the greatest part of training to become a ski instructor in New Zealand is that they can make the most of their gap year. By starting a gap year with a ski instructor internship, it allows you to have an internationally recognised qualification which can then be used during ongoing travel. As you will be fully qualified by the end of August, there is plenty of time to apply for work in Canada, Japan and Europe if your aim is to work back to back winters!
Training on your summer break
What better way to make the most of the long summer break than taking some well earned time out to have fun – but still getting a CV-boosting qualification out of it? Employers love to see diversity and personality on applications, and if you have always wanted to travel but worried about a gap on future job applications, then a ski instructor internship is the perfect option – you get all the fun of a jaunt overseas, but the teaching experience gives you skills employers will love.
Why choose Queenstown?
Queenstown is not just an awesome place to ski – it isn’t called the adventure capital for nothing! The world is your oyster in Queenstown – from heli skiing, zip wire and bungy jumping to jet boat tours and skyline luge – we’ve even created a top 10 list of the best activities in Queenstown.
Students make great ski instructors
The winter sports industry is seasonal and with 5 peak weeks every year, ski schools all over the world look for ski instructors to come and teach just for those weeks. As a student, you can use your breaks at Christmas, New Year, half term and Easter to get a week or two of skiing in for free! Most employers cover all expenses and pay competitive wages during this time – what more can you ask for?
