Becoming a ski instructor does have one glaring issue. The Northern Hemisphere ski season, at best only accounts for 42% of the year. Leaving you quite a lot of free time.
You can extend this to 70% of the year if you are happy to head down to the southern hemisphere and work there. Travelling like this is an incredible opportunity and a great way to see the world.
As you get older, you may find you want to settle down. Yes, we know it is a long way off, and yes, we know how old that makes us sound. But take it from us at this point, travelling across the globe every six months becomes a little less palatable.
In our opinion developing a trade/skill is one of the most valuable ways you can secure your annual earning potential.
