Ski Season Jobs

As for what you can do - there are a number of jobs available in a ski resort, though some need a bit more experience than others. If you want to work in catering, Chefs for example do need to have previous experience and depending on where you work you may need to have worked in a fine dining establishment with menu planning and budgeting. For other jobs such as hosts, or housekeeping assistants, you do not need as much experience, just a positive attitude and the ability to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. Of course if you have some previous experience in a similar role, it is always going to go in your favour. For the more adventurous individuals there are a lot of companies who offer training / work placement schemes, so if you every fancied becoming a ski instructor you could take one of these courses and they will have a job for you at the end of your training period. You generally have to pay out at first, but the guaranteed job will get your money back and then some, and the qualification is great for your CV.

For anyone thinking about winter work for their Gap Year, the ski season jobs on this page are well worth a look. You won't earn large amounts of cash, but you will get a fair wage, plus ski or snowboard kit hire, lift passes, and usually one full day off per week, all included in your salary package.
