INSTRUCTORS NEEDED

We are still hiring ski instructors.  Every year we ask the same thing- please tell your friends, family & co-workers about teaching at Powderpigs! If they enjoy working with kids, we want to hear from them!  We are seeking full charge ski instructors and also ski assistants for the 2015 season. (Our snowboard program is small, so the number of snowboard instructor positions is very limited, whereas our ski program is large and IS hiring!) Some great ways to help recruit new instructors include:

  • Tell your friends at school, work and in your neighborhood/community!
  • Post an announcement on your social media sites about how excited you are to teach for Powderpigs and that we are still hiring for more instructors and include a link to our website.
  • If you have a neighborhood/community/club newsletter that we might be able to post a blurb on contact Jennifer and she will send you something you can submit.
  • If your school has a leadership class/group, or volunteer requirements let Jennifer know who oversees those, so she can send them a flyer.
  • Teaching ski lessons may help you meet PE waiver requirements, ask your advisor or PE teacher today!
  • Word of mouth truly is our BEST form of advertisement & recruitment- so tell everyone you know!
