Course Attended: Ski Patrol

Less than a year ago I was earning a living sitting behind a desk; now I’m working on a ski resort in Japan and who knows what will happen next.

The decision to ditch my desk job and enrol in training was a big one – the past year has been tough and certainly challenging but also incredibly rewarding. It has given me a career that I am genuinely passionate about, and it’s been a hell of an adventure along the way!

The programme sets you up for a career in the ski patrol industry and is well-regarded worldwide. My seven-week work placement at Mt Hutt was definitely the highlight and I’d encourage anyone thinking about signing-up to get out there and do it.
