NMS Employment Opportunities 

Winter 2021/22 AIARE Course Leader, AIARE Instructor & Ski Guide Positions 

NMS is seeking to hire AIARE Course Leaders and/or Instructors for the 2021/22 season. Priority will be given to applicants seeking full time employment and to ski guides (individuals with relevant work experience, training, &/or certifications). Part time applications will be considered. Courses occur at least 5 days per week so it is possible to have full time work, rather than weekends only, if preferred.

NMS is owned and operated by IFMGA guides, has been in continuous operation since 1994, leads rock, alpine and ski trips both domestically & internationally, and operates year round. There is potential for this to lead to other guiding opportunities within NMS for qualified guides.

NMS offers competitive wages and the opportunity to work with other highly trained and experienced guides.

To apply please send a resume with relevant trainings/certifications and professional references to olivia@mountainschool.com.

Things we can offer: 

  • Very competitive wages.
  • A diverse schedule.
  • Mentorship with IFMGA and AMGA certified guides.

Basic Requirements: 

  • AMGA certification is not required, but we do follow AMGA SOP, so level of training and certifcation will determine what you can work.
  • Current WFR & CPR cards.
  • Previous guiding experience.

If interested, please send guiding resume, skiing resume, and references to info@mountainschool.com. We will be looking through the applications and will contact you regarding employment. Give us a call and we are happy to share details such as wages, schedule, etc. with you. We have a very extensive permit network in the PNW.
