Is it kosher to teach at more then one area?

Would the SSDs and management of ski mountains mind if you taught at two places? For example 3 weekdays at one resort and the weekends at another?

Assuming that you meet the minimum requirements of time taught, that is that if they didn't know about the other mountain they'd be happy with the part time hours given.

Sure. There's a few Stowe guys that teach at Bolton too, and some that go out West for a few weeks after the mountain closes. I don't see why anyone would care.

I was asked to spend time at three areas after breaking into instruction . As long as one knows they are your priority your off days can be spent elsewhere with their blessings. I would be honest about my contacts with other resorts as far as getting more hours elsewhere.
My area is not open Mon and Tuesday and Silver and Schweitzer are open all days so I can go to either if I want more hours.
This may be unique to my area (Mt Spokane) but I would think not. I am very happy where I am .I have great support from the whole staff and couldn't imagine working elsewhere right now . It's a great family type atmosphere.

Why not?

It's your world, man. The rest of us are just living in it.

A few instructors I know who had Privates would go the other areas to ski, and I know their privates would take them by private plane to other states to ski.

Some SSD's do mind and I know of first hand accounts were permission was denied. I don't know why.

I think it's fine as long as both your employers are informed of your commitments elsewhere. Indeed, the higher you rise as an instructor, the more likely it will be that you will have more than one employer. Take the ESA coaches as an example.

I know a bunch of people that teach at more than one area. As long as you're obeying the rules/commitment of each employer, it's totally fine.

Working at one place and free-lancing at another, now that could cause problems.

The only way an employer could legally challenge your right to work for another SS is if there was a non-compete clause in your employment paperwork that you signed. (Highly unlikely for SS job.)

That said, most employment is "at will" so one or the other SSD could terminate you at their discretion... or just not ask you back next season. That's more of an individual SSD call.

Well based on your replies I went ahead and asked the SSD at one of the mountains if he had an issue with it and he said not at all.

Was the SSD a Rabbi moonlighting?
