Mt. Stirling Nordic Ski Hire & Ski School – instructors needed

Good afternoon Ronice

My name is Craig Jones, director of Stirling Experience Pty Ltd, commercial operators of the Mt. Stirling Nordic Ski Hire and Ski School. 

I am searching for Nordic Ski School Instructors for the upcoming ski season.

Our Ski School would normally employ 5 qualified (APSI Level 2 equivalent) international Cross Country Instructors through our association with OÜ Suusakool, an Estonian Nordic Ski School operated by one of our former Staff Members and Estonian Nordic Ski Coach Vahur Teppan. Our association extends back for around 10 years and now with the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are unable to bring staff from Estonia to work for us this season and we are experiencing difficulty locating suitably qualified local Nordic Instructors.

The Birkebeiner Nordic Ski Club has a reputation as one of the leading Clubs within our sport, operating training squads and organising cross country events and competitions including the Kangaroo Hoppet, our country’s premier cross country ski event and one in which my Estonian crew has really enjoyed competing during past seasons. My hope is that within the membership of your club and their contacts with the cross country skier community, you may be able to assist Stirling Experience to advertise our 2021 seasonal full-time job opportunities for nordic instructors within our ski school and assist us to build a competent and fun-filled instructor team for this season.

Stirling Experience employs our instructors at a pay rate of $225.00 per day, we supply a uniform and all ski equipment. Staff accommodation and daily mountain transport is available on our farm at the base of the mountain. Our core season commences with the second term school holidays and continues through to early September. Full-time staff can expect to work at least five days per week and a ski school familiarisation and training program will be conducted by Kati Tammjarv at the season commencement. 

Complete details are available on our web site at www.stirlingexperience.com.au/our-mountain/employment

Any assistance that the Birkebeiner Nordic Ski Club might be able to offer to locate suitable candidates would be much appreciated. 

Kind Regards
Craig Jones
