Shaun White

Shaun White, the two-time defending Olympic champion in halfpipe, will make Northstar his primary training grounds. Northstar is one of EA Ski and Snowboard most popular training bases and EA's ski or snowboard courses combine training, instructor certifications & a guaranteed instructor job offer - all in one season! (Instructor Internship Programs).

This is your chance to spend your gap year skiing or riding at the same resort as Shaun White. While others wait for the Olympics or Xgames to watch Shawn White on TV you can watch him shred up the half pipe live in your lunch break, when you get paid to ski! The best start to your instructing career or gap year!

"Shaun White is the ultimate personification of the new energy and vibrancy we see across the mountain resort industry. Shaun's creativity and innovation has led the way for the self-expression we see in the halfpipes and terrain parks at all six of our resorts," said Rob Katz, chairman and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts.

"This feels like a homecoming because I have spent so much time riding at most of Vail Resorts' mountains," said White, the only person to win four consecutive gold medals in the Winter X Games Halfpipe competition.

"With Northstar as my home mountain, I now have the ideal place to train and continue to grow as an athlete, and I am looking forward to all the possibilities this partnership brings."

Shaun White also recently ended his sponsorship with energy drink company Red Bull.
