Work as an adaptive ski instructor in Banff
The Rocky Mountain Adaptive Sports Centre (RMASC) is seeking part time instructors for its 10 week adaptive ski and ride program for 2014 and has asked Nonstop to invite their alumni to apply...
The RMASC 10 week program is a ski and snowboard program for individuals with a disability. It runs for consecutive weekends from January 4th/5th 2014 until March 15th/16th (skipping Family day weekend).
Rocky Mountain Adaptive Sports Centre (RMASC) Seeks Nonstop Instructors
The program runs out of Sunshine Village Resort in Banff, Alberta, Canada. Instructors will work one to one with 2 participants a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. RMASC students will have a physical, cognitive or developmental challenge.
As part of the 11 week ski instructor course, Nonstop clients have the opportunity to take the Level 1 qualification with the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing (CADS). Lucy took advantage of this training as part of her course in Banff and talks about her experience on our blog here.
This season RMASC have a few positions available for part time instructors for their 10 week program. You can commit to Saturdays or Sundays for the program or both days (1 Thursday and Friday position also available).
Jessica has never been so happy...
