Do you love sharing skiing/riding with others? Are you curious about teaching outside a classroom in a more kinesthetic role?
We strive to help you learn how to teach skiing/riding more effectively and enjoyably.
The Middlebury College Snow Bowl School is about developing teaching expertise while sharing your enthusiasm for sliding (skiing/riding) on snow in the mountain environment.
Your level of experience with your equipment need not be highly trained or technical. The primary concern is your willingness to share educational experiences with others.
The actual 'on duty' lesson assignments (teaching and receiving pay) may be few and far between, but there will be lots of opportunities for practice.
We renew this endeavor each season beginning with fall indoor training sessions for all staff - new candidates as well as returning instructors. The sessions are always 'a work in progress' in that each year we strive to improve the content and presentation configurations by applying our experiences from the previous year.
These sessions take place on the Middlebury College campus in Lawson Lounge (above the Fitness Center) in the athletic complex off Route 30 (South Main Street) on a variety of evenings from 7 - 9 p.m.
