Moving to the mountains for nearly half a year might seem like quite a dramatic move but there are lots of great reasons why you might want to work a winter ski season.
One of the main ones is that you will get the chance to improve your skiing or snowboarding abilities dramatically. There are many ski instructor courses that you can do to improve your abilities and gain a qualification that could lead to a job afterwards.
Even if you don’t do a ski instructor course, there are several other jobs you can do to earn money while in the resort. All of the hotels and chalets need staff along with the lifts. You can earn money and in your spare time ski and party in the resort of your choice!
Doing a ski instructor course can be a great career break or gap year activity. If you have spent a lot of time in an office or will be shortly then a ski resort will be a stark contrast and could provide a much needed change of scenery.
