Dec. 18 Tuesday Night at 7 PM
California Building in Idlewild Park
Going to teach the parents to be the best instructors in snow sports!
Ski Instructors, Snowboard Instructors, JR Instructors, new or returning, this is your night.
(Maybe this time without all the sliding into curbs like I did.)
The saying is that skiing and boarding are gifts given by family and friends.
Sharing the gift of snowsports has been the heart of Sky Tavern for 70 years. This is a teaching facility. We need teachers, instructors, lots of them. Skiing, snowboarding, Sky Tavern needs them both. Come on and try it.
It is easy, it is fun and you will be happy that you carried on a 70 year tradition and became a Sky Tavern instructor. Even if you did not sign up as an instructor during registration, but want to give teaching a go, please come to the California Building for Step 1 of instructing kids. The smiles are huge rewards from kids that just made their first run down the hill because of you. Changing your registration is easy. Do it!
You don't have to be an expert skier or rider with a Swiss accent to teach. We will show any level skier or rider how to instruct, plus your skiing and riding will get better. This matters. Thank you in advance. See you Tuesday night!
For you parents that are not instructing, but helping run the resort, support or member only members, we are doing a couple of things. We are attempting to build a video of orientation. Stand by. We have the California Building Jan 8 if need be for orientation but will do most of it during dryland while kids are stomping around. Also a written orientation sheet, Lythia's List, will be coming out in an email. The job sign up sheet will be part of that. Lots of info including all about jobs is coming. LOTS. Sorry.
The Schedule as of today. Subject to change mostly due to weather.
