What makes your company different from similar gap year providers?

We realise that our resort staff have been instrumental in the continued success of the company and we hand pick our staff not only for their experience but more importantly for their enthusiasm and outgoing and friendly nature to run our resorts and chalets. Subsequently we want our staff to be the best in order for us to continue to provide that ‘little bit extra’. If you feel you have what it takes and want to be part of a company that is committed to excellence then we are the company for you.

Why are you a good company to travel or work with?

Are you a speed freak, bombing down every piste? A park rat homing in on that new trick? Or the adventurous explorer looking for fresh tracks and waist deep snow; we have the resorts and positions that suit all ranges.

Most of us here in the office started out with a winter season (What else is there to do after Uni?!) For us it is the ultimate must-do experience and where you will find us in our element.

Come and find yours!
