agree with Snowolf. Also your experience working with kids in the outdoor setting will transfer over to snowboarding nicely. One of the best pieces of advice I can give you is to have fun with it and listen to the kids. As you have questions throughout the season there are some great resources on this forum. Snowolf has a ton of good info. I'm also a full time instructor and staff trainer, I'm sure there are others here as well. Hit us up. congrats on taking an awesome job.
