If you're looking for something a little bit more adventurous than bar work in the sun for your sabbatical or gap year, Nonstopski could provide a cool alternative. The company provides intensive 11-week ski and snowboard instruction courses in the Canadian resort of Fernie from January to April.

A season with Nonstopski costs pound;5,800 per person (pound;6,200 for 2005), including flights, accommodation, tuition, seasonal lift pass and meals. Lessons are available for all levels and lead to international coaching qualifications. You could also study foreign languages or cookery, for example.
