Ski Area Employment
Do you love the mountains? Are you a fanatic about skiing and snowboarding? Are some of your favorite memories on snow-capped mountaintops? If you answered ‘yes,’ to any of the above questions then we have the travel job for you!
Working at a ski area is perhaps one of the most exciting travel oriented jobs on our list.
If you’re looking for ‘cool’ seasonal work, then step up and find out all there is to know about procuring a job in the ever popular, super-cool, ski industry! Although some ski resorts stay open year round for summer activities we consider ski resort jobs to be a seasonal, winter job. Most will only stay open as long as the mountain has snow and as such, we’ve geared most of the jobs on our list to include those that actually involve being in the snowy mountaintops. In our ski resort jobs section find out about all sorts of opportunities, including: ski instructor jobs, lift operator and ski shop employee jobs, ski patrol and ski team coaching jobs! Each of these jobs is great if you’re a seasoned skier or snowboarder and these jobs are especially fitting if you’ve had any coaching experience. Because each year, thousands of people flock to the world’s best ski resorts, there is a growing need for trained and skilled instructors as well as resort area workers in order to accommodate the influx of tourism to ski resort areas in the winter.
If this sounds like something you’ve had experience in, or if it sounds like something you’d like to have experience in, then consider learning more about getting a ski resort job. In our snow sport resort job sections we delve into specific job titles like instructor and lift operators to show you exactly how to go about getting these jobs, and what its like to work in one. These jobs are great for students who have a long winter vacation or entire season off from school!
Snow resort jobs are great for ski and snowboarding lovers because the perks are amazing. Not only can you expect to get free lift tickets throughout the season and meet other employees who are passionate about your favorite sport, but you also get to live in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world! Ski resort jobs represent a huge opportunity for travel, by providing jobs in some of the world’s most coveted locations. Imagine, you’ll be living in a place people might spend thousands of dollars to visit for a week or two!
If you’re not qualified to be a ski instructor, ski shop employee, or coach, and would rather spend your working hours warming by the lodge fire, then never fear.
There are ski resort jobs that still provide the opportunity to travel but are great for those with less experience on the slopes as well. Because so many ski resorts provide lodging, a large hotel staff is needed to accommodate guests. This means bar tenders, waitresses, waiters, cleaning staff, guest service workers, hotel managers, excursion guides, valet parking, and security are all needed. If you’re dying to spend your winter vacation in the mountains and want to gain access to that free season pass, consider a job at the many ski resorts and mountains located across North America! There are even a lucky few who land jobs in Europe!
