SKI DIRECTORY AND WINTER RESORT WORK

Maybe you are looking for a course that will give you the skills and experience needed to step up to the next level, or perhaps you just want to put your existing expertise to good use. Knowing which companies have a good reputation can involve quite a bit of research. Although you may consider yourself lucky to find employment with any company in such a specialist niche as a winter sports resort, where demand for jobs dwarfs the supply of vacancies, the fact that it may be a once in a lifetime opportunity also means that you should try to work for a company who will offer you the best experience. Below you will find a selection of what we consider to be the companies you should be aiming to work for if you want to enjoy a great season on the snow. We speak to these companies on a regular basis, we know that they really look after their staff and support the people who go on their instructor courses, so we have no hesitation in suggesting that working for any of these companies will set you up for a great time in resort.

Outdoor dry ski slopes have been around for years and have always been very popular, and more recently indoor winter sports centres have been springing up and they can now be found in most regions.
