Ski Season Jobs 2020/21

Employment options for people wishing to follow the snow

Getting paid to live in an Alpine environment sounds almost too good to be true. Finding ski resort jobs that enable you to stay in resort for the whole season, working and playing hard while everybody else has to head back home at the end of their holiday, earns you the right to call yourself a Seasonaire. It's a tough job but somebody has to do it, and there are plenty of opportunities for those of us who seek seasonal employment. A great way to find seasonal jobs during the winter is at one of the many thousands of chalets established to cater for the tourists who head to the mountains each year for their week of fun on the snow. Or if you a reasonably good skier, or you can handle a halfpipe without eating too much snow, you could be tempted to try your hand at snowsport instructing. There are plenty of ski resort jobs to choose from, and this section of our site will share the best opportunities on offer.

The vast majority of the ski resort jobs we advertise are in the European Alps or North America, so start dates are usually around early November. Holiday companies like to have their staff in place as early as possible, so most will begin their recruitment not long after Easter. Don't worry if you are applying late, people drop out all the time, meaning plenty of last minute roles to fill each ski season.

The great thing about the ski season roles available on outdoorjac is the variety. We work with companies who look after many thousands of guests each season, including family and school ski trips, as well as smaller chalets who perhaps offer a more refined experience, bringing you into contact with fewer guests.

Qualifications leading to ski resort jobs

You probably won't be surprised to hear that plenty of other people are also currently thinking about spending the winter on the side of a picturesque snow-covered mountain. Even your application to clean a chalet for six months will attract some serious competition; with the best roles going to those with very high quality CVs.

To get ahead and make your application stand out, as with all ski resort jobs, you need to good experience. If you are a recent school leaver, or graduate, this can be difficult, so why not think about adding a course or two to your name. For instructors, qualification courses are a pre-requisite, but courses in chalet hosting and catering should not be overlooked and will certainly give you the edge when it comes to securing that all important interview.
