Ski Season Jobs

Teach snowboarding, skiing, or work in a resort

If you’re looking for winter jobs abroad, chances are you’ll find a lot of ski season jobs. Availability will depend on the season (obviously), and will whisk you away somewhere cold (yes, we like to state the obvious). This might be somewhere relatively nearby – France, Italy, and Austria have some of the best ski resorts in the world – but there are plenty of amazing places to ski outside Europe. Further afield you can find places like Canada, New Zealand or Japan – also world class.

Once you’ve chosen your destination, there are different ski season job roles to consider: you might be a ski or snowboarding instructor, a hotel manager, a bartender, or a nanny in the resort day care centre. The range of student winter jobs abroad means you can find something suited to you, whether you’re a totally righteous snowboarder or more accustomed to skidding down the bunny slope on your face.

The advantage of any ski season job is that, alongside earning money, gaining valuable experience, and meeting people, you have access to the slopes during your free time. Break a leg! (Actually, don’t). For more info, check out our complete guide to surviving a ski season.
