Snoworks Announce Brand New Ski Instructor Course This Summer With Guaranteed Job In St Anton For The Winter Season

Three week course on the Hintertux Glacier in Austria this summer will provide work as a ski instructor in the world class resort of St Anton for winter 2014-15.

Here’s a perfect opportunity for all those final year students and school leavers dreaming of a winter in the Alps, to gain a qualification that guarantees a job as a ski instructor in one of the world’s very best resorts – St Anton in Arlberg, Austria.

Highly regarded, British Ski Course Company, Snoworks, have announced their own program in association with the Arlberg Ski School, founded in 1921 and still one of the most prestigious in the world that will offer jobs to all students who pass the Austrian Level 1 exam (Antwärter) in Hintertux this August.

The three week course includes eight days training with an Austrian Skiführer – the highest level trainer in the country. Following that, a ten day exam that will be held in German aims to qualify students at level one status which provides the guaranteed job in St Anton.

Head of Snoworks GAP courses, Lee Townend, commented

Because of our excellent relationship with the Arlberg Ski School in St Anton, we are able to offer this fantastic opportunity to work in such an amazing environment. The Antwärter qualification means a guaranteed job for the whole season and I’m delighted that we can now offer this to British skiers.
It’s important that any participants can speak conversational German, both for the exam and the work involved in the ski school during the winter season.

Accommodation during the course will be in the fabulous, four star, Hotel NeuHintertux, located at the foot of the glacier – this is based on a half-board basis.

The price also includes a lift pass for three weeks and return airport transfers from Munich. Travel to St Anton for the winter season is not included.
