Snowboarding instructors / Blue Mountain

Hey guys... well there are 2 questions here.... first one is
How good do you have to be to teach at a resort? I was thinking when I am doing university in a few years I'd take a year off to work at a hill... maybe as an instructor. I mean after 4 extra years under my belt.....
2) has anyone been to Blue Mountain in Ontario? This is where I will be doing most of my boarding unless I manage to go out west or to tremblant/mont ste. anne during reading week.
oh actually let me add a third question
are there any websites that ship to canada where i could purcahse anon apparel like t-shirts?

Well in Canada you'll find it pretty hard without some sort of formal qualification such as CASI/NZSIA/AASI. I'm not aure about NZSIA or AASI but I have my CASI level 1 and 2 and for your level 1 you need to be a solid rider, and you'll pretty much just get beginner lessons on the practise hills. However being able to throw down big tricks or ride really fast isnt important, you need to ride how they want you to ride, so their set stance and technique which is the tough part.

Edit: Ok just looked on that hills website and you'd need at least your CASI level 1 for them to employ you.

To work in the european alps then you will definatly need qualifications, outside of france a CASI level 2 and being able to speak the language should be ok, in france you will need a BASI qualification and speak french.
