Looking for work

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

The Midwest ski season is starting to come to a halt. I have been an alpine Instructor now for two seasons at a Wisconsin ski hill. I have gone through the PSIA process and received level 1 certification this past December. Also, working towards level 11 and plan on taking the on the snow exam in January. If anyone could chime in on what it would take and also what to expect in terms of money to be made for an instructor job in Summit county for the remainder of the season. Currently, I live in Chicago and would be ready to start asap...thanks..

Based on a guy I spoke with last week doing the same thing as you, the resorts have a little late season bump in demand for instructors during spring break so they take on some extras now. At least where he taught -I think Keystone - there was staff housing. Of course not much money in terms of salary. This year he said he was headed to Park City instead - mostly for a new experience -I think he mentioned that finding housing there was difficult. Lining something up this late in the game might be hard, but call around.

Call Chris Koch at Winter Park.


Understand that you will likely spend the next five weeks teaching three and four year olds or possibly first time adults.
