Ski instructing in Canada - Katrina Hardie - Blog 1

8th December 2014

Katrina Hardie is heading off to Mt Norquay in Banff, Canada, to train to become a ski instructor with EA. Katrina will be spending the season at Mt Norquay as a ski instructor, and you can follow her season here!

Hey Hey! My names Katrina and I’m doing the 2014/15 ski internship at Mt Norquay in Canada. I’m 19 and this is the first time I’ll be leaving home for more than a week or two! The countdown is on and emotions are flying high, switching from being super excited to being sad about leaving my family and friends.

I’ve finally got all my gear sorted and I’m ready to hit the slopes, I’m can’t wait to get out there and start learning. I love skiing and I love working with kids so for me this is the dream job. EA set up a great FB group with all the interns at my resort in, so I’ve been chatting to some of them, very excited to actually meet them in person now and spend the season and a ‘few’ drinks with them!!
It’s safe to say packing everything I need to live for 6months into one suitcase has been a challenge, In fact such a challenge I’ve decided to pay for another bag! It seems to be a constant string of paper work to sort, last minute buys and many goodbyes. Every morning I wake up and see my ski gear sat in my room, just wishing I could look out the window and see the mountain I’m going to spend my day on. Only 4 days to go!!
