Instructor Time Commitment

Instructor Time Commitment

Our ski school runs 9 consecutive weeks with a break around the February holidays.  
We ask that instructors pick at least one day (Fri PM, Sat or Sun) and commit to teaching the full 9 weeks
(barring extenuating circumstances such as illness), as you will likely have the same students for the duration of the season (unless there is a major skill issue). Each extra day committed to add to your hourly pay! 

We also require instructors to go through our instructor training program.

Fri PM requires 3 hours of time commitment (roughly 6:15p-9:15p).  Sat/Sun require 5 paid hours, with an hour lunch break (9:15a-3:15p w/ break from 12-1p).
If you commit to teaching at least one day, your child/ren would be guaranteed a space at a discount for youth lessons on the day that you teach.
