I haven't really looked at any individual resorts very much, still in the early stages of figuring out what I have to do just to get to NZ. I did email Cardrona but the reply I received was very vague and didn't really help me figure much out.
nzboardlife if you emailed some resorts asking what Americans must do to become instructors over there that would be a huge help! you would probably be able to word questions better than me.
Snowjoe, you said that if I get CASI Level 2 certified I would probably get a job in NZ, what about just a CASI Level 1?
If possible I'd be thrilled to avoid having to go through an expensive training course (especially because I don't think I could get any CASI certification at my local mountain, Summit at Snoqualmie, here in the NorthWest) but if that is the only way then I guess that's what I have to do.
Also, would it make sense to get hired in NZ at a resort restaurant (or some other job) one summer, go through the NZ instructing training course, and then return during the following summers as an instructor?
thanks for all the help!!!
