Learn the fundamentals of teaching snow sports, gain hands-on experience assisting experienced instructors with actual lessons and improve your own skiing or riding along the way!  If you are 15 years old with an interest in becoming an instructor, are a strong intermediate skier or snowboarder, enjoy working with children and have an outgoing personality, the J.I.D. program will give you a jumpstart to becoming a qualified professional snow sports coach.  At the end of the training you will receive an individual evaluation of your potential as a ski or snowboard instructor. Qualified participants will be invited to join the Ski Sundown Snowsports School the following season.  

Enrollment in the training is limited.  Participants are notified of acceptance after review of their application and an interview with one of the coaches.  The training cost is $250, payable after acceptance into the program and includes a Ski Sundown Season Pass.
