Hi i am considering working a season in european skifields. I don’t mind what job I hvae as long as I get to ski but i have to leave by mid february for uni (southern hemisphere) will I be able to get a job or will no one consider employing me in the first place because of this?
Any information would be appreciated thanks

I did a ski season in les deux alpes in france a couple of years ago. If you’re going to be leaving mid feb its best to keep it on the quiet and not tell any potential employers this otherwise chance is they wont employ you. Get the job and get out there and ski, and then let them know you need to go home just before. They can’t stop you leaving but they probs wont take you on if they know in advance.
If you have any more season related questions feel free to ask.

I applied through workaseason, who act as an umbrella for a few different chains. I applied to be a chalet host as it was most suited to my skills/experience.
After I applied I got invited to and interview which was near London. This was okay, it was a group interview where they tested your knowledge on the job, company, skills etc. You had to do a presenatation on yourself, why you’d be good as a chalet host and why you ultimately want to do a season. Sounds daunting but it really wasn’t, think the majority of people in my group got a job, just got to relax, smile and put on a good first impression.
