Do you have a child between the ages of 13 to 15 that is interested in becoming an instructor? The Gatlinburg Snowsports Center has an apprentice program that gives them an insiders look at snowsport instruction. The apprentice attends a daily coaching session on subjects that include skill improvement and teaching techniques and then shadows actual classes to learn how to help students have more fun.
The Apprentice Program is free, however participants are required to have an Ober Gatlinburg season pass or purchase a daily lift pass. The best benefit is that when the program is successfully completed, the apprentice be will be offered a staff position when they turn 16.
Contact a GSC Supervisor for more information by calling 865.436-5423, ext. 234.
