On an EA Ski & Snowboard internship here you will train and work at Whakapapa ski field. Whakapapa is a 25-minute bus trip from your accommodation at National Park Village. The ski season in New Zealand runs from June until October.
The work position at Whakapapa ski field begins after the training and exam portion of the course. This is generally in late June/early July time. The contract runs until October but there is flexibility to leave earlier if needed.
Once you arrive in the National Park Village, you will meet your EA Program Manager who will help you settle into your new home and introduce you to your fellow interns. You will then get straight into an intense training and exam period, which finishes up before the start of the busy school holiday period, when you will begin your employment on one of New Zealand's busiest learning facilities.
There can also be further structured training opportunities available to take you on towards the level 2 standard, and these will be available as part of employee internal training sessions, usually scheduled around busy times for work.
