Ski & Snowboard Instructor Hiring Clinic-Spring Session

Become an Instructor Next Winter!

Written by: Emma Brice

As the season comes to a close and you start thinking about how to get the most out of next winter, imagine yourself in the boots of a ski or snowboarding instructor. Imagine your job is on the mountain, sharing your love of the sport and the outdoors with new people, and sharing your passion with young kids, as well as adults.

We have an exciting opportunity coming up to help you get involved with the Crystal Mountain Ski & Ride School next season. If you are interested in blending your passion with your work and getting paid to ski or ride, check out the upcoming instructor training clinic during the first two weekends of April!


We are looking forward to hosting an instructor training clinic on April 1st& 2nd and April 8th & 9th. This four-day instructor training course will refine your own skiing and riding skills while you learn the necessary tools needed to teach kids and adults the basics of snow sports. Spend each day practicing skills and drills with your peers, exploring the mountain, and learning how to effectively teach.

The clinic is free of charge and will secure you a spot on the Crystal Mountain Ski & Ride School employee team for the winter of 23/24 with full benefits.

This is a great way to give back to the mountain, while gaining experience. Not to mention the perks of working at the biggest ski resort in Washington! You and your spouse/dependents will receive a free season pass, steep discounts on food & retail, friends & family discounts and more.

What does the clinic entail?

You will be required to participate in all four days of the training (April 1st & 2nd, April 8th & 9th from 9am to 3pm). These days will consist of intensive experiential training in how to teach kids and adults skiing and snowboarding skills. You will have opportunities to practice with your peers and refine your own skills with constructive feedback to take you to the next level in your skiing or riding.

What is the required experience level?

It is helpful for participants to have intermediate skiing or riding abilities. While previous instructing experience is not required, it is helpful. The one thing you must have is positive energy, enthusiasm, and a strong passion for sharing the sport with others!

What would be my commitment for the 23/24 winter season?

Your commitment as an instructor next year would be a minimum of 15 teaching days spread out over the season. This typically amounts to a minimum of 1 day per week, with the option to add more days each week as desired. These days can be midweek or weekends.

How can I register for the clinic?

Please contact the Crystal Mountain Ski & Ride School at indicating your interest and experience level, along with a phone number to contact you.

This is just one of the many ways you can become involved with the Crystal Crew next season. We are always looking for rad people who are eager for adventure and have a passion for learning. You can find more information on how to join the team and ski for free next season here!
