    Hey, so I'm considering becoming a ski instructor but I'm not sure about what the pay is like and how it would work seen as it's only a seasonal job. Also, surely it would be difficult to start and maintain a family? Anyone know about being a ski instructor? Thanks

    If you enjoy it, go for it. You'll find other things to do in summer - Ice skating instructor perhaps?

    Considered becoming a ski instructor in my gap year. If you want to be qualified to instruct in europe on proper snow the training costs £1000s but if you're thinking UK dry slopes a course is no more than a couple of hundred. Definitely costly to start off but the more you invest in it the more you get out. I was thinking of training up to level 4 which is the highest level on snow i.e instructing off piste and racers, it would cost me up to £20000 but there aren't many instructors at such a high level so the pay is a hell of a lot better I know loads of instructors that have a family and it suits them just fine but you'd definitely have to consider getting a summer job and the amount you earn depends on the number of tourists that go to your resort. But definitely really cool thing to do!
Do you think parents should charge rent?
