Snowsports School Seasonal Employment

2016 – 2017 Season

Do you like being outdoors? Do you like people?

Do you love skiing or snowboarding?  Would you like to share that love?

We are looking for individuals who love the outdoors and children and are interested in becoming instructors.  Love working with children, but not a skier or snowboarder?  We may have a spot for you too! 

Come join our Snowsports School for the winter. All you need is an interest in helping people and a passion for the outdoors.  All new instructors will be expected to assist with novice ski lessons.  Please see Interview sessions schedule below.  We ask that you download and bring in both our Thunder Ridge Ski Area Application as well as our Instructor Application.   Email our Snowsports School Administrator with any questions.  Instructor candidates will be required to complete the Thunder Ridge Instructor Training Course. The cost of this Training Course is $50 (non refundable).
