Queenstown Snowsports Instructor – International Applicants (Returning/ New)

Although the borders are still closed to international travel and we unsure when that will change, we would like to know if you are interested in joining us for the 2021 winter season. By submitting an application, we will notify you via email if the borders reopen and what measures that will come with. We miss our international whanau and hope we can shred together soon!

We have one thing in common around here; a passion for snowsports, our mountains and creating memorable experiences for our guests. Our purpose is simple. Love it, live it, share it!

Our Snowsports crew are an important part of our mountain’s personalities and help us deliver on our promise to our guests. As a Snowsports Instructor at Coronet Peak or the Remarkables, our expectation is that you will strive to deliver an exceptional experience for all our guests in every lesson you deliver, each and every day.

We are looking for some pretty special people.

Every guest brings their unique self whether they are a first-timer on snow through to a seasoned expert and performance skier or rider. You will need to be flexible, adaptable and completely customer-centric. You will be willing to go the extra mile – whether by assisting your own guests or helping out another instructor or team, we all roll up our sleeves and ‘muck in’ whenever required.

Our instructors have a unique opportunity to make ‘Winter Legendary’. We want all our guests to have a fantastic day and leave the mountain planning their next winter experience with us!
