Title: Ski and Ride Instructor in Training - Intern
The Sugarbush Resort Instructor-In-Training (IIT) Internship Program is a non-paid academic internship designed to provide participants with an educational opportunity to develop the skills required to be a ski or ride instructor and the experience of hands-on application of the knowledge gained and skills developed. Participants assist in a variety of programs and departments giving them a well-rounded knowledge of Resort operations with the focus on ski & ride education.
The program’s mission is to "homegrow" future Sugarbush instructors and leaders. We have a dedicated IIT Coordinator who works with the Interns at our children’s ski & ride school in our brand new "Schoolhouse” facility. Each Intern will get the time and attention that they need with seasoned Sugarbush instructors to build solid knowledge, skills and abilities relating to instructing in a professional ski & ride school.
Interns are required to fulfill a 28-day commitment through the course of the winter season and are evaluated on foundation skills as well as job specific skills mid-way through the season and at season’s end.
The internship is open to anyone age 14 to 18. If you are age 16 (by Nov 1st) or older and have completed one or more years of our internship program, you are eligible to apply for a job as an instructor. 16 to 18 year olds are not eligible to be hired as instructors unless they have completed at least one year of our internship or have prior ski/ride certification or instruction experience elsewhere.
All participants in our IIT program MUST be eligible and able to receive either high school or college credit in a qualifying work experience or physical education program for participation in this program.
