Actually sounds pretty good.  I never got a free lunch when teaching.

Be forewarned!  A considerable amount of students attending Angelfire are of Texan and Cajun origin!....and throw in a few from Oklahoma!  Not of your traditional student base, however ya gonna have a fun time and laugh allot!  Received my first 2 lessons in Angelfire 18 years ago; great group of instructors there!

I (Sooner born and bred), have skied AF many times.  My best friend in High School and college dad owned a home there. Not a great place to ski, but when it's free you don't complain.

My brother-in-law , The Duke (pasted away last year), had been bringing up cajuns since the early 80's.   Gold Creek was the only condo on the mountain back then.  Herb, across the street, took care of all our boot purchases and rentals for the kids. AF ski school taught first lessons to my son, step son and daughter and over 20 nieces and nephews.  Thanks for the good job Robin!

 

Oh, and thanks to AF resort for the great discounts given to Hal's Pals for lift tics and rental fees.  That was a hell of a crowd this past Mardi Gras!  As to AF not being a challenging mountain, it is what ya make of it.  There is plenty of terrain  that will get your heart rate up....and if that won't do it for ya, drive a few miles to Taos and don't forget to eat your Wheaties.....

What are the chances of finding some local housing, and how much work could we expect? My girlfriend and I are considering heading that way to work, but need to make sure we'll at least break even doing so.

 

Me: 4yr instructor, PSIA Level I, over 1000 hrs of teaching (beginner groups to high-level privates)

Her: 2yr instructor, over 350 hrs taught, 200 of which were kids

 

Both: Hard workers, good attitudes, well seasoned in customer-service, skill related outdoor positions.

 

Any feedback appreciated! Thanks for your time!

I taught at AF for 6 years.  Fantastic opportunities for training!  A wealth of knowlege exists in their ranks and the teaching terrain is really nice!  A 3-mile green run?  If you can't get someone turning by the end of that run, you can't do it anywhere!!!  As far as skiing.... the steep terrain may ve short, but plenty of fun stuff to do AND, Taos is only an hour away if you need to get your scare on!  The busy times are busy, and the slow times are slow (like anywhere else) but instructors at AF have always felt taken care of and it's a really unique place to work.  (I say slow times are slow, but school groups, locals programs, and creative sales-manship seemed to keep us full-timers on our toes.)  GOOD LUCK ROBIN!  SEE YOU IN NOVEMBER?

Thanks Spag!  Brian, I will let my alumus speak to your questions!  You read my recruitment ad in the PSIA East newsletter and that is how we operate.  We tend to have a family business approach to growing our professionals.  I believe everyone has something special to contribute; to the training, to the culture, the Guest and to the bottom line.  It is a business, but we aren't so Darwinian that we watch to see what floats to the top, we are all invested in each others success.  It is different, but so are the folks that make up this business and that is what makes us tick.

 

See you in Breck for training, Kev!  Then I fly out to a 100 race in Tucson....that should be a drastic climate shift!

I had the opportunity to work with Robin several years ago. He is a great guy and a great ski school director. Anyone wanting to get into the ski business as a teacher would be well srved to consider taking advantage of the opportunity to work at Angel Fire.
