Job Title: Ski Wee/Wee Riders Instructors (Part Time)

Reports to: Manager, Snow School

Job Summary:

Your boots crunch through the snow as you head over to greet your lesson. After introductions are made, a few moments are spent getting to know your class. It’s a perfect day for teaching. Warm sunshine covers the hill and it is blue skies as far as the eye can see. The excitement builds as you all clip in and prepare to set off. Your lesson delivery is clear and effective, and you enjoy seeing the development of your class as they begin to understand and put your teaching into effect. Their eyes light up as skills become easier and movements smoother leading to a final sense of accomplishment. The lesson ends with high-5’s, fist bumps and a clear picture of just how far the guests have come with your guidance. As you head on to your next lesson, you take a moment to pause and think to yourself, “This is why I’m here”.
