With a proven track-record, we enable passionate riders worldwide to become ski and snowboard instructors at leading resorts in Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland and the United States. After over 10 years of operation, 3000+ EA Alumni have now become qualified. Some are even up to their 9th or 10th seasons.

Our focus

Our focus is on offering the best winter experience on the planet and making it easy for people to become instructors. We achieve this through exceptional training and our guaranteed job offer. There is a guaranteed job offer waiting for interns at the end of their course because we believe in not only teaching instructors but also setting them up in the snowsports industry and giving them a foot in the door.

Our success

Our success has stemmed from our people. Everyone involved in EA from office staff, seasonal resort reps, and instructors are all chosen because they are experts and share a passion for snow, mountains, adventure and the awesome experiences skiing and snowboarding offer. We have world-class trainers in resorts such as Big White, Lake Louise and Niseko, ready to impart their knowledge onto the next generation of ski and snowboard instructors.

EA Ski and Snowboards programs all include: 

  • Guaranteed job offer at one of our 30 world-class resorts
  • Full season lift pass with staff transport
  • Training and exam fees
  • Accommodation while training 
  • Support getting your working holiday visa 
  • Staff benefits and social events and so much more...

Program options 

Instructor Internship

We have two different types of programs.  The first is our internship which involves training, qualifying and working within a single season. The only way we make this happen is by guaranteeing all interns a job offer after they have finished the training portion of the course and are qualified. This program is for those of you looking to get into the industry as an instructor or looking to work through the season on the snow. 

Training course

The second program option is one of our training programs. These run from 4 weeks to season long and are perfect for those of you who are not looking to work but looking to vastly increase your skill level and shred powder 24/7 at an epic resort like Lake Louise or Revelstoke in Canada.  Programs include your level 1 training and instructor certification, full accommodation, full season pass, with the opportunity to upgrade to include level 2 instructor certification, first aid, avalanche and freestyle training.  You’ll have as much time on the snow that you can handle in your first winter season while everyone else is slaving away working.  If you later decide that ‘winter seasoning’ is for you, we have over 30+ resort partners around the world and would be happy to set you up with an instructor job the following winter season.

EA Ski & Snowboards resorts have been handpicked for their training capabilities, their terrain and their ability to offer the most consistent work to you throughout the season. You can choose from over 29 resorts in Canada, Switzerland, New Zealand, Japan, the US!
