Take A Gap Year Ski Instructor Course

SITCo runs ski courses and ski training programs to allow you to achieve your NZSIA ski instructor qualifications.

With the NZ winter season running June-Oct, you have the opportunity to come to New Zealand enjoy a winter season, train for your ski instructor qualifications, then head off to the northern hemisphere to work as a ski instructor with your qualification already in your pocket!

    What Are My Options Once I Am A Qualified Ski Instructor?

    After your SITCo course you will have the world as your mountain to go and work and play.

    One very big advantage of the New Zealand ski season is that the season runs
    June - October, because we are in the southern hemisphere. This makes NZ the perfect "off season" training ground. Once the NZ season is finished then the northern hemisphere winter season is just getting ready to start.

    There are many, many different opportunities after your SITCo course.

    Working as a ski instructor is a possibility in - Europe - Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Andorra, Spain, Germany, UK to name just the big names.

    Please note that France is a little bit different and no matter what qualifications you have you will need to consider further qualifications before you can work as a ski instructor in France.

    North America - USA, Canada

    Asia - Japan, Korea, China

    Southern Hemisphere - Chile, Argentina, Australia and of course New Zealand

    Just remember when you are planning on where you would like to go there is also the issue of work visas and depending on what passport(s) you hold, what age you are etc this might sway you to work in a particular area.
