Another epic New Zealand wraps up



This season's EA interns at Mt Hutt will go down as one of the best..the ski school were stoked to have a great team on board, and they quickly became well-loved locals in Methven! Great to see so many of you continue on as instructors as a career, now jetting off to Japan and Canada this winter for another round of goodness.

"About halfway up the mountain road you get hit with an amazing sight, the sun bouncing off fresh snow and there’s an instant joy and satisfaction and that's when you say it again, ‘I love my job!"

"The feeling that you get when someone goes from never seeing snow to ‘I’m skiing, I’m skiing!’ is brilliant, you sort of say to yourself …”I did that!”

NZ 2015 ALMOST FULL ALREADY!!

Only 3 places remain for New Zealand internships starting June 2015. If you want to find out more about becoming an instructor in New Zealand, please email us at [email protected] so you don't miss the bandwagon.
