We know its a big decision choosing to join one of our internships and longer training courses. Living on the other side of the globe in a ski village, with a bunch of strangers, is a big change from everyday life! To help ease you into your new winter season life, EA have developed short 1-2 day Arrival Orientations to ensure you are met at the airport safely on arrival, have a bed to sleep in after the long flight, and time to chill and get to know your new mates before you get into your training. 

EA Arrival Orientations include:

  • Airport welcome and hotel transfer
  • One or two night’s accommodation (depending on course)
  • Evening meal at a local restaurant and breakfast
  • City sightseeing!
  • A day to organize essentials (where applicable) – tax ID number, bank account, mobile phone
  • Transfer to your training resort
  • Meet your EA Program Manager who will be your man-on-the-ground for the winter!
  • Note: Late start dates are available. Contact us for details.
