SEEKING SKI & SNOWBOARD INSTRUCTORS!

[Victor Constant Ski Area at West Point is Recruiting Ski and Snowboard Instructors]

 

We are recruiting ski and snowboard instructors.  All of our instructors are volunteers who receive season passes, free training, in season clinics and access to ski at West Point during operating hours.  This is an opportunity to share your love of snow sports with the community.   Our ski and snowboard weekend lessons are scheduled on Saturday and Sunday and run for one hour each.  We ask that instructors teach (or are available to teach) 16 lesson hours during the season.  We welcome new instructors who are PSIA/AASI certified or brand new.  We provide free training.
