Ski Season Jobs
Most seasonal workers know that skiing is a winter sport, and that if you’re planning to work as a ski ‘seasonnaire’ your job will last from roughly mid-November to the end of April. The bulk of the skiing public take their holidays between mid-December and mid-April so as winter season staff your roles will entail some set-up and clean-down time at each end of the season.
There are some exceptions to this way of working though. Whether you have prior engagements – a full-time job, travels or studying being the most popular – or you just hadn’t thought about ski seasons before, many Ski Operators look to employ staff throughout the season. This is a perfect opportunity to experience one of the greatest life experiences going – living, skiing and working in the mountains…
There are disadvantages to joining a ski season half-way through: The resort teams will have an established camaraderie built over the past couple of months of working and living together and there may not be the range of jobs to apply for as at the start of the season, for example.
Top 7 Reasons to join a ski season late
- You’ll miss the difficult and demanding Christmas and New Year period
- You’ll dodge the dark and sometimes bitterly cold month of January
- The resort teams will be well-oiled and able to train you very efficiently and quickly
- The weather is improving by the day
- The snow-base (the amount of snow that’s compacted on the ski slopes) is pretty much at its maximum, making for amazing skiing and snowboarding conditions
- The days are longer meaning more time on the slopes
- There are events such as live music and ski competitions happening more often as the spring skiing season progresses
