Ski & Snowboard School

Ski and Snowboard SchoolSierra-at-Tahoe® Ski and Snowboard School offers a variety of positions and a great work environment. 


The Sierra teaching experience

Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort offers some of the best teaching terrain in the Tahoe basin, and you can enjoy tree-skiing, powder, backcountry gates, and terrain parks. Sierra is made up of a unique and diverse group of individuals brought together by our passion and love for snowsports. We place a high value on training and professionalism. Just like any other mountain resort, we are weather dependent, and the weather can often be finicky. With this in mind, Sierra-at-Tahoe instructors get plenty of hours teaching and other tasks, increasing your earning power.

 

Our Commitment to Training

Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort is committed to offering high-level training opportunities to our staff.  Whether your goals are to seek a higher level of certification or just to improve as a skier/snowboarder and teacher, we are committed to growing our staff both personally and professionally. With current and former PSIA Demo team members on staff and fully certified trainers from several countries, we offer a diversified and professional training program.

Training Programs

At Sierra we provide training programs to our instructors that are unrivaled by other resorts. From our highly certified training staff to our early morning access to the mountain, we guide the instructor through the often challenging and confusing process of obtaining certification. Our training modules include; PSIA/AASI Levels 1, 2 and 3 certifications, park and pipe certification, and children’s specific certification. Other training modules include guest service training, resort specific terrain training and backcountry training.
