An update from Michael, out this season on the Early Season Instructors program:

Thinking about taking a gap year or just a change of scene?

I undertook the Snowboarding Instructors Course based at Mount Norquay, this included the training, exam fees along with guaranteed employment!
After i passed my level 1 i went straight into teaching representing Norquay's ski school. It's fun working with others who share a passion for snow sports!

As for the training you receive when you are out here, it is unmatched, working for a ski school there is always some way to challenge or test your riding. So if you are up for working at a snow resort, earning money doing it AND becoming an unrivalled mountain slayer then you'll love this  

As for everything else you can think of is organised for you, from where/who you live with right through what mountain you work at! 

I did my level 1 CASI certification and intended on just coming to Canada for the year, but now i'm taking my Snowboard Level 2 and Park Level 1 and planning to stay the summer too the experience was that good!

As a gapyear, as a life choice or just a different experience to what you are used to, taking a year out through Gap Year Canada is a must do!
