Jobs at Sugarbush Resort
Title: Ski and Ride Instructors
Type: Full and Part Time Seasonal
The Sugarbush Ski & Ride School is seeking ski and snowboard instructors for the 2014-15 season to work in our various teaching programs. We are looking for enthusiastic instructors and coaches who are dedicated to sharing their passion for snow-sports with others and to continuing their own development in the process. Full and part time positions are available.
The guiding principles are "safety, fun and learning" - for our guests and staff alike. Our teaching methods are based on the standards of the American Teaching System of the Professional Ski Instructors of America / American Association of Snowboard Instructors. Our instructors teach both children and adults, and are assigned lesson levels based on their demonstrated technical and teaching skills. We work closely with all staff on their continuing professional development in order to expand the range of what and who they can teach, and our gifted trainers and our season-long training program is an integral part of each instructor's experience. A range of non-teaching responsibilities are a necessary part of all instructors work, including attending regular training and generally assisting us in creating exceptional guest experiences throughout the resort.
While we have a preference for applicants with experience teaching skiing and riding, we welcome applicants who are new to ski and snowboard teaching, particularly those with transferable skills from other pursuits and professions. Successful candidates ski or ride at an intermediate level or above and demonstrate exceptional communication skills. All our staff must demonstrate a willingness to teach, learn, and have fun with a wide range of guests and staff. A team-oriented, welcoming and professional personality is a necessity. Preference is given to instructors with PSIA /AASI, USSA, and USASA certification.
