Ski Resorts Need You

Seasonal ski resort employment is an absolute blast. There are all sorts of job opportunities available where you can work for a season or set yourself up for a career as a ski instructor, coach, ski shop worker, ski manufacturer representative, or some other totally awesome job. Be sure to apply early to make sure that you land a job at your resort of choice. If you are flexible, you’ll find a job that you love and you’ll get to ski or snowboard all the time.

When you work in the mountains, everywhere you look there are jaw-dropping views of scenic peaks and breathtaking mountain ranges. Your office is the outdoors and your workspace is covered in snow and lined with chairlifts. You get paid to play in the snow and in return you make sure that the ski resorts and mountain towns run smoothly and guests have fun. It’s the same at ski resorts all over the world.

Who Will You Work For?

Skiing is a global phenomenon. There are thousands of ski areas scattered all over the snowy regions of the world. You can ski in over 45 counties. In the United States alone there are well over 400 ski resorts. But there are plenty of other wonderful places with excellent ski resorts that need people like you to spend the winter season working in paradise. Due to lack of snow, lack of mountains, or lack of interest, there are no major ski resorts offering lift accessed skiing and snowboarding in Nebraska, South Carolina, Georgia, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Kentucky, Hawaii, Delaware, and Florida.

It’s important to find a resort where you want to work. Take the time to do some research and find a place you want to spend a snowy season. You can work close to home, travel across the country, seek massive terrain, head for the biggest vertical, find the craziest park, look for the deepest snow, chase the best après scene, or pursue a work abroad experience.  The hunt for the perfect resort is on…
