Overview

Ski & Snowboard Instructors 2021/22

The Gore Mountain Snow Sports School will be conducting our annual “Learn to be an Instructor” Training Course & Hiring Clinic on November 27-28, 2021. If you want to see what it takes to be an instructor at Gore Mountain this 2-day clinic is an opportunity for you to gain skills and knowledge about teaching and coaching skiing/snowboarding.

During the 2-day clinic, you will learn how, what, and when to teach or coach certain skills and drills. You will also receive individual feedback on your personal skiing/riding.

Upon completion of the clinic, we will let participants know who we wish to hire on our staff for the 21/22 season. If you successfully meet our requirements and are offered a position as an instructor, training will continue throughout the season and during your employment.
