Our ski Internship Programs


A commonly asked question. Which is best, an internship or a course?  Whilst there is no particularly wrong way of getting into the ski industry, an Internship is definitely one of the quickest. But is it right for you?

Internship v's Course

One of the hardest things can be getting into the snow sports industry. Most schools want to employee instructors with experience, but how do you get that experince when you’ve only just qualified? That’s where an Internship comes in.

Guaranteed Job

We run our internships at 4 vastly different resorts in Canada, each with its own attributes. Whilst you might be drawn to a particular resort, it’s worth doing some due diligence and thinking about what you want to achieve on your internship.


Honest Reviews on Trustpilot

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.
