Lorna has made the transition from teacher to student, embarking on a career change into the mountains. Here are a few words of wisdom for anyone considering becoming an instructor…

Before joining EA I was a Primary School Teacher in the UK. I love teaching! I taught for 2 years and was very lucky to be part of a fantastic team teaching amazing kids. I will always remember every child I taught, and remember how proud I was of every child’s achievements. Since qualifying as a ski instructor, I am grateful for the opportunity of changing the way children and adults view skiing. Whether someone learns to stop or parallel turn, I still get the same sense of pride I had when I was in the classroom.

As a brand ambassador my job role is to provide future interns any hints and tips to help prepare for their EA adventure. It is always helpful to hear from someone who has recently gone through the same experience to learn more about what to expect and how to make the most of opportunities available on the EA program.

My advice is to take advantage of every opportunity

From the training you receive, to shadowing other peoples’ lessons. If you’re having a bad day, take a look around you and remind yourself why you are there. I would also recommend packing that extra layer or two you may leave out of your suitcase. So far the temperatures whilst I’ve been working have dropped to -34°c!

The mountains surrounding Lake Louise are truly breath taking. Every time I am at the top, whether on my own, with friends, or taking a lesson I always take the time to admire my surroundings. I can’t believe I get to call it my new ‘classroom’.  Also the people you meet at the resort are all friendly and helpful and I love meeting new people every day.
