The Gore Mountain Snow Sports School will be conducting our annual “Instructor Training Course” (ITC) November 25-26, 2017. If you want to see what it takes to be an instructor at Gore Mountain this 2-day clinic is an opportunity for you to gain skills and knowledge about teaching and coaching skiing/snowboarding. We’ll also help you improve your own personal skiing and riding skills.
During the 2 days, you will learn an overall view of how to teach, what to teach, and when to teach or coach certain skills. You will also receive individual feedback on your personal skiing/riding. At the end of the 2-day clinic, we will announce who we would like to offer ski/sb instructor positions to for the 2017-18 season. If you successfully meet our requirements and are offered a position as an instructor, training will continue throughout the season and during your employment.
