The Snowsports industry is highly gendered due to the roots of sports as a male dominated endeavor. This research looks at the way in which gender influences career progression of women in the industry. The research finds that women’s success in the industry is largely influenced by self-efficacy but also procedural justice and issues related to precarity and care-work. Recommendations for the industry are then addressed with the goal of creating more equity to help women go further in their career and proceed to higher level of qualification. Addressing gender issues in ski instructing requires a multi-faceted approach involving the ski industry, ski schools, instructors, and governing bodies. Promoting diversity, providing equal opportunities, creating inclusive environments, and challenging gender stereotypes can contribute to a more equitable and inclusive ski instructing industry.
