Instructor internship at Panorama Mountain Resort

Sylvian Lachance. 15 Mar 2022
"The internship program at Panorama is probably one of the best choices I have ever made. It's a fantastic adventure and experience. I have met so many interesting people and made so many new friends that I don't want to leave. Working as an instructor is probably one of the most fulfilling jobs there is! Even on a bad day you're still outside in the mountains sliding down the slopes which beats most of my best days at home. The Winter Sports Company has done a great job of taking care of me and the other interns."

Giving you the best start!

Many a career has been sparked with the promise of seeing the world. But as a ski instructor, you have a genuine chance to do just that. In fact, being a seasonal job, it’s pretty much a necessity.

So either do this full time or try to dovetail this profession into your existing career and keep your lifestyle fresh with some international travel in the winters.
There’s some amazing destinations on offer, to say the least. As the winter sports industry continues to grow, you can now ski, snowboard and instruct in around 2000 resorts, in more than 70 countries – and on all seven continents.

We train instructors on three of those continents, but with our globally recognised qualifications accepted across 37 nations, its up to you to decide what you do with them.
