“I had always wanted to work in the ski industry for my GAP year but all of the programs I had searched only offered training but no work experience. EA Ski & Snowboard provided me with the answer. I passed my PSIA level one exam - and now I am putting all this to use with a job as an instructor! …the experience of a lifetime…” Guy Martin, United Kingdom, Instructor Internship
