Work this season for ES Zermatt (Switzerland): 4-week NZSIA ski instructor training course
We’ve partnered with the New Zealand Snowsports Instructors Alliance (NZSIA) and European Snowsport (ES) Zermatt to offer you a unique 4-week NZSIA ski instructor training course … the chance to get NZSIA-certified before Christmas and enjoy a minimum of 6 weeks of guaranteed peak-season instructing – meaning you’re straight into a paid job after the exam!
Zermatt: a winter paradise
Zermatt is one of Switzerland’s premier resorts – a real winter paradise with a history to match.
Famous for the towering Matterhorn, the resort brings an international mix of mountain lovers to Zermatt’s endless slopes.
The Matterhorn is never far from view in Zermatt
As a glacier resort you can be assured of great skiing 365 days a year, on 360 km of pistes, all the way up to the Klein Matterhorn at 3,883 m.
You stay in the 3-star Hotel Jäegerhof with breakfast and a 4-course dinner included everyday – and we’ve also included your lift pass for the duration of the 4-week course.
Cosy and friendly you’ll find the Hotel Jäegerhof the ideal place to stay for the lifts in the day and the bars at night.

Training is split into three blocks during the first three weeks.
You will then sit the 5 day NZSIA Level 1 exam towards the end of the course.
