Could this be your calling…?

Working in the snow industry offers us the chance to travel the world, continually meet new people and push ourselves to learn and to ski on new terrain, but finding a job can be problematic and worrying.

A guaranteed job offer

EA Ski and Snowboard Training provides the foundation for a professional career in the snow sports industry, offering not only a formal and internationally recognised qualification but the ability to work on snow in your first season as an instructor.

Special rates have been released for ski instructor courses for this coming winter season and will allow skiers to head to Nakiska in Canada and Club Med in Japan for as low as USD$4985. While EA typically work at larger resorts and charge twice this amount for many of its most significant courses, these sale rates will hopefully encourage as many people possible to join one of these life changing courses.

Training and qualification

Although making these ski instructor courses more accessible through a reduced cost, the quality of the training, various course elements, exams and subsequent qualification and training accommodation remains to a high standard. One of the most common internal debates when deciding on a career in the snow is the reluctance to submit to working in bar, on snow café’s or working on lifts for an extended period of time.

The benefits of an instructor qualification allow us to use our professional skills and develop a work ethic which no matter what long term career path is taken, our experience instructing on snow is invaluable.


  • Guaranteed job offer
  • Welcome pack & EA team issue clothing
  • On hand program manager (for the full duration of the program)
  • Accommodation during your training & an employee season pass
  • 3-4 Weeks of professional on snow level one coaching and level 1 examination costs

  • Get Inspired

    We all come from different places, beach side suburbs hours from the resorts, ski villages nestled below mountain ranges and from country towns across the globe, a remaining constant however, is our appreciation for what we do and of the surroundings in which we immerse ourselves.

    We are brought together through a love of what we do and a desire for the next greatest season. Get a new perspective on this winter and take the opportunity to learn, train, qualify and teach at one of the worlds most sought after winter destinations.
