I did EA last year at Revelstoke mountain resort. It was a great way to get into instructing. You get trained up by the best pros on the mountain and then you’re teaching by Christmas. You get the chance to take kids for the first time, who’ve never skied before and throughout the course of the season are up the top of that huge mountain up there and it’s just one of the best feelings. You also just improve your skiing – you’ll be a billion times better skier, you’ll be able to hit all the gnarly stuff up there so yeah – totally recommend EA to you guys.
