Josh is one of this season's head instructors for Kinosoo Park Academy. We'll let you tell him about himself in his own words.
I love snowboarding and I love to teach! I believe every lesson should be a fun and safe experience and that’s exactly what KPA is all about. As an instructor I am very patient, passionate and hardworking. I will try my very best to help you reach your goals.
I come from a little island down under called Australia, and as a snowboard instructor I am certified as Level 2 with a Level 1 in coaching freestyle and racing.
Over the past seven winter seasons, I have worked and snowboarded in many international resorts including Thredbo and Perisher in Australia, Whistler and Big White in Canada and Niseko in Japan. Riding, teaching and training in these world-class resorts has given me a wealth of experience that I am excited to bring to the Kinosoo team.
So if you’re ready to take your riding to the next level, make friends, have a ton of fun, sign up now to not miss out! I’ll see you out there!
