**********

Snow Squad members are basically the informal street team for Nikwax, out at ski resorts all over the US and Canada. Their sphere of influence could include their co-workers, fellow instructors or patrollers, ski & snowboard students, ski resort guests & families, and more. 

In exchange for sharing their love for Nikwax with others, Snow Squad members will receive:

1)   Nikwax swag pack!

2)   FREE Nikwax product for the whole ski season!

3)   Opportunities to work sampling/marketing events on behalf of Nikwax, for some extra $$$!

 

Even if you join late in the season, we can still get you on the team and keep you there for next season. It’ll be here before we know it!

Brian is the coolest dad. Like for real. His toddler daughter is already a better snowboarder, skier, & biker than all of us.

Corey’s ski lines are smoother than Andre 3000’s wardrobe. He floats through the powder like a knife through melted butter.

Some have called him the next Warren Miller. Some have mistaken him for a former cast member of Duck Dynasty. To others…he’s simply Kurt.

The definition of chill, Greg is just as likely to be found petting puppies as he is to be pushing powder. Be like Greg. Be chill.

There’s not an outdoor activity that Kelsey doesn’t like. She has effortless swag and probably has more whitewater rafting stories than you.

It’s a bird…It’s a plane…No! It’s Jeff doing some ridiculously-impossible aerials and looking like a complete boss while doing it.
