Helene, 34 from Hampshire UK
- Ski Instructor Course, New Zealand, 2008
- NZSIA Ski Instructor Levels 1 & 2
- Currently working as a Primary School teacher
"Helsa" was working as a primary school teacher but fancied a break and so joined the SnowSkool New Zealand programme in 2008.
Helsa says, "Because it ran from July to September, the SnowSkool NZ programme fitted in well with the school summer holidays and so I only had to persuade the headmisstress to allow me to take a couple of weeks extra holiday. Wanaka is the most amazing place ever - breathtakingly beautiful ... like one massive outdoor playground: skiing, hiking, mountain-biking, canoeing, sailing, bungee jumping, sky diving - whatever you want to do! Truth be told, I checked out vacancies at the local Primary School and am weighing up my options with one eye on a permanent move out there!"
