Ski Instructor FAQs

While we do not have a shuttle for employees, you are more than welcome to check our “ride board” in the instructor room or talk with a supervisor. We have lots of instructors coming from JMU and other local colleges! We will always be willing to work with employees to make sure that they can make it into work safely and on time.

Experience teaching skiing or snowboarding is not essential. Having the ability and desire to communicate with our guests is our goal. If you can safely ski or snowboard our easiest slope, you can teach! Even if you have no experience on the slopes, we can train you to be a better skier/rider, as well as a good instructor. So, no teaching experience is required.

If you do not have your own equipment, you may use our rental gear for tryouts. After you’re hired, we can provide you with discounted equipment options for the season. We will issue you a vest and jacket for use while instructing; However, you will need to acquire your own black pants to wear as part of your uniform.

We have many schedule options to fit your needs. Work as little as 1 day/2 nights a week (or 12 days out of the season), 2 days/4 nights a week (24 days of the season), or more, all the way up to full time instructing. 

From the adults to the children, the first timers to the advanced skiers, our supervisor will be willing to work with you to make sure you’re teaching a group that you’re comfortable with.

Pay starts anywhere between $9.25/hr to $12.25/hr, based on your schedule and time commitment. With daily training and hours taught, pay may increase up to $2/hr during the season.

Being a resort, often our guests are gracious with tips for the excellent care and customer service that you will provide. Many of our instructors are rewarded with tips after a lesson.
