Cory, Australia
"The best 5 months of your life! Why stay at home doing the same old stuff with the same old people when you can wake up each morning with a huge smile on your face thinking of your new day's challenges and antics! I challenge anybody thinking about doing a season to listen "play it safe" by Seth sentry then tell yourself what type of life do you want to live?

Nora, Finland
"This has been and continues to be a massive experience for all of us and I'm just so happy to be in my element here in Queenstown, New Zealand! We are all absolutely loving the whole mountain life."

Nora, Finland 
"By Sunday we’d all collected those highly anticipated red jackets and were already working, half of us at the Remarkables where I’m based and the other half at Coronet Peak. I knew we all looked the part that first day as all of a sudden people were coming to me with questions. I took my first lesson and it was then that I realised that getting paid to do something you love is one of the best things."

“EA made my life pretty easy! The fact that everything is pretty much arranged and all I have to do is show up to training, work hard on my skiing and also get an invaluable experience working with NZSki is an opportunity that gave me more than I could ever have asked for.”

“Absolutely loved it here, meeting new friends and starting my way through a new career, everyone has been really friendly and helpful. The work was good and gave me so much more confidence going into the level 2 with that teaching under my belt.”

 “I chose to do the ultimate plus programme because it would give me the best chance at getting an instructing job in the future. I enjoyed my time doing the course so much! I learnt such a lot, and being able to ski every day if you wanted was the dream. Being able to actually work, and get stuck into the instructing industry was awesome, and helped me learn even more about different ways to teach and adapt to suit different people. My plan is to finish my degree at university and then travel back to NZ to do another season, and then go from there to either Canada or Japan for the following season.”

"I really liked the guaranteed job offer after passing my level 1 exam. I was very busy and got a lot of work, I improved my skiing ability and the training was great. This winter was all about amazing memories, new friends, and awesome skiing.”

“I think it's a fantastic idea to partner gaining qualifications and attaining a job. After speaking to so many another qualified ski instructors, they all agreed that EA is a fantastic program to get involved with to guarantee a job. The contact with the team was fantastic, even with a distance from NZ to the UK the communication stayed constant and informative when initially booking onto the course, Rich, Adrian and the team did an amazing job. The accommodation was great and I also really like the addition of a Facebook group where all people who signed onto the course could chat and have names and faces. I definitely will not be forgetting this winter, it has been sensational. I have met so many amazing people who I know will be lifelong friends, friends who have helped me in so many different ways. My skiing ability has rocketed, I have had training from some of the best skiers I have ever had the pleasure to ski with. I have taught some amazing people and had some brilliant lessons, I've made contacts who I can visit all over Asia. If I could do it all over again, I would not change a thing, I cannot thank the team at EA enough.”

“Amazing season experiencing a new environment away from "normal life" can completely change ones perspective on what work really is. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to inspire other people to follow their dreams. I had loads of fun and would definitely recommend EA to a friend. The EA Rep support in resort was excellent and the guided training was the most beneficial for me.”

“The best thing about the EA program was the awesome people you get to meet along the way, it was lots of fun and I improved a lot. I would happily recommend EA, it’s been an incredible experience making unlikely friends and going in fantastic adventures! This has been the best winter of my life, thanks EA!”

Rachael, Australia Rachel Davis
“I got just the right amount of work and the course gave me the opportunity to get teaching experience and a foot in the door for the snow instructor industry. The accommodation we stayed in was excellent and unlike other courses, EA gave me the experience which really helped with becoming a snowboard instructor. The course also gave enough time to practice my snowboarding.”

“I had always wanted to work in the ski industry for my GAP year but all of the programmes I had searched only offered training but no work experience. EA provided me with the answer. The programme was awesome, I developed my personal skiing, met some great friends and passed my level one exam - and now I am putting all this to use with a job as an instructor in Canada!"
Guy Martin, United Kingdom

“I participated in the snowboard training and examination program in Lake Tahoe and it was the best time of my life. I learned so much and met some great people along the way. It‟s been a great experience and I am looking forward to getting further involved in the industry. I would recommend the course to anyone as it gives you great confidence and self-esteem, and it is a lot of fun!”
Peadar Maloney - Ireland

"The internship in Japan was just epic. I learnt so much during my course and met heaps of awesome people. Firstly Japan was just such an amazing experience. The snow... UNREAL. I was a bit freaked out about going to a new culture but we had our little EA team bubble and our clients were all English speaking. Now I am a level one certified snowboard instructor! I am so glad I took this opportunity; it has been amazing and an experience I would recommend to anyone with a passion for the snow!"
Olivia Munro, New Zealand

"I just wanted to say on behalf of 2 parents thank you very much EA, the experience you have given Robert has been amazing and is exactly what you state on your publicity. The guaranteed work after qualification is an incredible package. Our son has a friend who foolishly used another organisation for a similar experience in Canada, to date he has obtained his Level 1 but couldn't get any work, his parents forked out more money so he could obtain his level 2 and still he couldn't find any work and they are now having to send him money to cover the rent on an apartment he had to find himself, he is currently stacking shelves in a supermarket to make ends meet and is thinking of coming home".
Parents of Intern

"All I want to say is EA have been a thoroughly professional organisation and have done everything they said they would and for this we thank you. This has been the experience of a life time for our son and he has made so many new friends from all over the world that I‟m sure he will never loose contact with. Ian Chitty - England ”The three-week training course was a great experience. I learnt so much and improved my own riding in such a short time; which is no coincidence considering the teachers and instructors are world class. A great life experience!“
