How much money do snowboard instructors make?

How much snowboard instructors make can have many variables. If you are certified you will normally make more per hour. If you live in the mountains you will make more as most lessons are half or full day. Typically an instructor non certified will start out at min wage or slightly higher and possibly get an extra couple of dollars for each extra person in the lesson. A fully certified level 3 instructor can make anywhere from $12 - $30+ an hour depending on the resort and years of experience. Tips can affect how much an instructor makes, a good instructor will make decent money in tips. Also discounts on snowboard gear is a benefit many instructors take advantage of which indirectly affects how much they make. With all the variables in wage a snowboard instructor just starting out will probably not make a lot, but with time and education a good instructor can make decent money. Note: you will not get rich teaching snowboarding, but you will have a great time!
