Make the SS cert much harder. The PSIA level III is the easiest to get in the world (sorry guys) Austrian, Swiss, Oz, NZ are much harder.
Make instructor training like going to university. (i.e. Bundersportiem)
For legal and safety reasons only graduate instructors can work full time.
Interns do part time work as part of thier training.
If a resort cannot employ enough graduate instructors then they cannot service their guests. (imagine what that would do for "Instructor University funding")
After all skiing is a "Professional Industry".
Wash up would be.
A real career, real wages due to the need to attract graduates from the pool, much better instruction due to college dedication, instruction would become a respected and attractive career, the creme would rise to the top and the resorts that employ the creme would charge the applicable rates.
And hey then a resort could market thier instructors as graduates from "XX University of Skiing" and the public would flock to these "marketable" schools of instructor.
