WINTER SPORTS GAP YEAR

Winter Sports Company are gap year specialists. Each year school leavers enroll on our programs and spend their year out gaining valuable ski or snowboard qualifications and work experience. Our shortest courses are just 3 weeks long, but most guests enjoy an entire season with us – either on a residential course or on our extremely popular internships. On an instructor internship, guests spend 3 weeks training to be a ski or snowboard instructor, once qualified they start working in a guaranteed job, in a world class resort. Students can join us with as little as 2 or 3 weeks on-snow experience, and we are currently recruiting for interns to join our 2018 program.

We’re holding a meet and greet in the Manchester area, at Chill Factore, on 9th and 10th September 2017. Book a no obligation appointment today on our website.

If you would like a brochure to display in your school, please respond to this email with a mailing address.

Gap Year Options

Instructor InternshipsA ski or snowboard instructor internships allow students to train to be a level 1 instructor and then get paid to work as an instructor for the winter. Internships are available in Canada and New Zealand, visit our website for information on how to apply.

 Instructor CoursesSki and snowboard instructor courses are a great alternative gap year. Becoming a ski or snowboard instructor during a year out not only looks amazing on a student’s CV, but also allows them to work in ski resorts across the world once qualified. Winter Sports courses take place throughout the year in Europe, Canada and New Zealand.

 Ski Patrol CoursesSki patrol is the mountain emergency service and on this course students will learn all about mountain safety, rescue, incident prevention and much, much more.

Previous students have spent the remainder of their gap year instructing in resorts around the world including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Europe and even the snow dome in Dubai. There are also opportunities to work at one of the many UK indoor snow centres.
