Canadian powder is world famous, the terrain is epic and Canada is one of the best countries in the world to train to become a professional in the snowsports industry. EA Ski & Snowboard want to give you the opportunity to become a ski or snowboard instructor this winter season. See if you qualify today at one of Canada’s best resorts: Revelstoke, Big White, Norquay, Nakiska, Lake Louise or Cypress. 

Our internships allow you to travel to Canada, train and qualify as a Level one ski instructor, and then accept a guaranteed instructor job. This means that you will train, qualify and work, all within the same season.

When you arrive, you'll receive a welcome and orientation from the experienced staff. You'll meet your fellow trainees, plus your programme manager, who will be on hand throughout your season. The season starts with world-class on-snow training to assist you in reaching Level 1 CASI/CSIA standard and will prepare you for sitting your level one exam.
