Madarao Ski Instructor Internship

Active Life Snow Club (ALSC) is partnering with WE ARE SNO to bring the first ever ski instructor internship to Madarao. The instructor internship programme is based at some of the world’s best ski resorts and has been growing in popularity in Japan in recent years.

About the ski instructor internship

The ski instructor internship programme allows passionate skiers a fast-track route into the snowsports industry through a specialised training and certification pathway. Interns will benefit from a comprehensive package which includes, but is not limited to; Resort transfer, accommodation, on-ground support, specialised on-snow training, level 1 examination, and an instructor job offer once qualified.  

Each instructor that successfully completes the internship programme will be qualified through the New Zealand Snowsports Instructors Alliance (NZSIA). After this period they will join ALSC to provide guests with a fun and safe learning environment.

The benefits of the internship programme

Breaking into the snowsports industry can be notoriously difficult, with high levels of competition for instructor jobs. Simply being certified is no longer good enough to secure employment. 

The partnership between ALSC and WE ARE SNO offers a direct pathway into the industry with guaranteed employment. Graduates of the internship programme are given the necessary tools to thrive, and many go on to have long and exciting careers in snowsports.
