Career Break Programs

Are you looking for a change of career? Have you always dreamed of escaping the rat race and becoming a snowboard instructor? Do you need a break from work for a few weeks or months to recharge? Or do you just want to take your riding to the next level? If so, one of our Career Break Instructor Training Programs will get you where you want to go AND you'll have the time of your life along the way!

Our Career Break Programs are aimed at guests aged 30+, who want to dedicate time to their riding and have some certifications to show for their efforts, but don't want to share a house with a group of 18 year olds while they do it. We offer a broad variety of programs:

YES ACCOMMODATIONS

For our Career Break guests, we recommend our YES 3* self-catered multi share accommodations: Downhill House and Tyndall Stone Lodge. Both offer a comfortable home-from-home with ensuite or private bathrooms, twin and single share options are available in both. There is a shared living space and fully-equipped kitchen. These properties give you the chance to socialise with other housemates or do your own thing as you prefer. We also have a private self-contained 1 bedroom suite at Downhill House. All properties are subject to availability. 

If you would prefer more privacy, we are also happy to arrange a private condo rental or hotel for your stay. Please contact us directly for quotes and options. If you prefer to find your own accommodation, you may also join our programs on an instruction-only basis for $750 per week. We can also arrange lift passes (WB Season Passes or Epic Passes), just ask us for a quote.
