Snowboard – From Passion to Purpose

Instructors are often highly passionate about their jobs. As an industry of employers, trainers and educators, snowboard schools and teaching/training programmes, recognising how this passion first begins is crucial, as is understanding the value of purpose among instructors.

In this lecture we will explore:

  • The roots of passion in snowboarding
  • The factors that can enhance or limit one’s purpose in the industry
  • How SBINZ have been cultivating both passion and purpose to help shape our future in snow sports

This interactive lecture is an educational perspective on the instructing industry and explores the passion and purpose of instructors.
