5 Years +
Do you work back to back Winter Seasons?
Where in the world do you work?
How big's your apartment?
Apartment?! Bed only for me

You see a child tumbling down the slopes, do you...
Go over, check that they are OK
Wait for them to stop. Will help out if they have attractive parents.
Ignore - you're not on duty anyway
Have you ever gone on a date with a client?
No way - Very unprofessional

Once and now we are married.
It's your day off tomorrow, and it's forecast for a bluebird powder day
Go out, get smashed
Early night, let the muscles rest. First lift tomorrow, with a clear head
Set the alarms for 4am. You're going hiking
Bluebird?! Whatever - day off. I'm in catching up on Game of Thrones
Sunscreen. What's your opinion?
Not for me. Do you think Jean-Claude Kily wore that chemical shite?
Neon zinc for me. it's right in
Uniform - What's your opinion?
I couldn't pull without it
Something I wear with pride
Annoying - way not steezy enough
Nothing to get excited about, it's just work clothes
Highly practical - grants my own technical gear a much longer life
Are you an equipment junkie?
No - I own 1 set of the essentials
Yes - I have all the gear and as I am a ski instructor I also have a good idea of what to do with it.
What age do you plan on retiring from ski instructing?
30s Before my knees give in.
40's Before my liver gives in.
50's Before my skin is a leather bag.
Never. Are you mad this is the best job ever!
Do you wish you could be an instructor in France?
Yes it is the ultimate goal
I am - Worship me!
Have you ever been chatted up just because you are a ski instructor?
Have you ever cancelled a lesson to go skiing!
Yes - A powder day is hard to resist
No - I am a professional
All ski instructors are self obsessed, arrogant and rude!
Do you own a pair of snow blades?
Have you ever lost a client on the mountain?
It happens all the time
Which of these statements is the closest to the truth.
I am a ski instructor and I spend most of my time standing on a nursery slope teaching children to ski and feeling very cold.
I am a ski instructor and I spend most of my time waiting around on easy pistes waiting for clients to catch up.
I am a ski instructor and I spend most of my time skiing fast on the best terrain in resort, skipping lift queues and being bought expensive lunches by my talented ski clients who also need no instruction at all.
I am a ski instructor and I spend most of my time hiking and skiing off piste in fresh snow and messing about with my mates.
We all know that ski instructors do it for the money and not the love, so where do you spend all your wedge?
Ermm, who told you that? Most of my money goes on renting a small apartment and getting to work.
In the bar.
Saving up so I don't have to work in the summer.
It has been said that Ski Instructors are Arrogant - If so - Out of 5 how arrogant are you?
1 - Not very arrogant
2. A little arrogant (you need to be)
3. Arrogant enough
4. Quite arrogant - How do you think I got this good!
5. Very - but I'm the best, so that's fine
You're a Rockstar!

Are you the rock and roll instructor of the mountains, a family man, the sleazy cliché, the average Joe destined to spend your life teaching on the nursery slopes or do you prefer things slow and steady?
