Work and train towards your Level Three certification
Snow Trainers has partnered with Coronet Peak to offer you an opportunity of a lifetime for you to work and train with their legendary ski instructor courses in New Zealand. This resort is located in beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand. You’ll train for your internationally recognized Level three NZSIA qualification and gain valuable work experience at the same time. To qualify for the internship you must already have your Level two qualification (e.g. NZSIA, PSIA, CSIA, APSI, BASI), organise your work visa
and pass through Coronet Peak’s employment process. We also offer the option to train for the exam without working so let us know if that’s something you’re interested in.
An amazing winter experience
You are sure to improve your skills, have an amazing time, learn a great deal and probably meet some life-long friends as well. Snow Trainers want to make sure you have a fun, rewarding and memorable experience on our courses so we organize loads of social activities throughout the course. We can also cover avalanche safety and back-country awareness so you know how to stay safe while enjoying New Zealand’s spectacular mountain environment.
New Zealand’s best Ski Trainers and Coaches
and Coronet Peak’s coaches are Ski Trainers and Examiners for the NZSIA, not just high level instructors. Who else would you want to be trained by other than the actual coaches who run the exams and decide who makes the grade? Your trainers have many years of experience both instructing and training students to become instructors, so they know what you need for the exams and also what’s required in the real world of ski instructing.
Great employment opportunities
As part of our training
we provide information and advice to help our students “live the dream” once your internship has finished. We have a great network of connections all around the world to help you continue instructing at a fantastic resort the following winter. We will assist you with advice and guide you through the employment application process to help you succeed in finding the job you want.
