We seek out graduates of this class when selecting instructors for our annual staffing needs.
Whether you have a serious desire to become a ski instructor, or you want to make that jump to high performance upper level skiing, this program is for you.
NEW Bonus! All participants are eligible to purchase a season pass at Instructor pricing — about 1/3 of ski school discount! Register with program and then email Ullr Sports School for special ordering instructions.
After the first 3 Saturdays, participants will be assigned to shadow elementary instruction classes so you will earn real cadet instructor experience.
There is a test at the end of the season for instructor training students interested in trying out to be paid instructors next season.
Bonus! Students who successfully complete this course receive a free pre-season instructor training package for qualifying to be an instructor the next fall (a $50 value). Email Ullr Sports School for more info.
Required Advanced Skills Test
You must pass a proficiency test to demonstrate that you can ski or ride in control on Blue terrain. The test will be conducted in a marked corridor approximately 30 ft. wide and 300 ft. long set on Blue terrain by the Gallery Lift.
To PASS, an Instructor Training Student will be expected to:
- control your speed by making linked turns across the fall line
- make linked turns in both directions (left/right, toeside/heelside)
- stay inside the corridor from top to bottom with no falls or stops
Students will get up to 3 attempts on the course during the testing period.
Students who do NOT pass the skills test or MISS the test must sign up and pay for Recreational Skiing/Snowboarding.
