The dream season in Canada!
I've always dreamed of working a winter season and WE ARE SNO has made that a reality for me.
I would have never thought being a ski instructor was possible but here I am living in Canada at Silver Star Resort doing one of the most rewarding jobs and doing one of my biggest passions!I came across the company on the season workers website and it was such a simple process to get the ball rolling. After conversations with Adrian about what the course offered I decided to take the plunge. Adrian was so easy to talk to and made the whole process so much easier. The company have an ethos that makes you feel part of a family and not just an individual. Adrian was so helpful and helped with everything from advice on the course, to helping with the visa process, or just general help. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
When we all finally met at the airport and I met the people on the course that I would be spending the season with, it instantly felt like I had made the right decision. We all have a common interest and we all clicked straight away. Having gone to Uni and meeting new people it's not always easy to get on with everyone but meeting everyone and getting on with them soon settled those nerves.Adrian and Sean took us all under their wing and ensured we felt comfortable and at ease. The training of the course was well organised and we had really in-depth training and support which helped us prepare fully for our Level 1 course.
It isn't just work and no play either. We all went out together as a group for meals and activities that did not involve the snow, such as bowling, rock climbing and Ice Hockey! The social side only demonstrates further how much WE ARE SNO take care of you and build on that family bond.I am loving every single moment here in Canada and to be able to ski everyday in such a magical place has been one of the best decisions I have made.
I would recommend it to anyone who has a love for the mountains and skiing to take the opportunity.
