Skiworld Ski Season Jobs

After the amazing winter ski season of 2017/18 in which we saw one of the snowiest starts to a winter on record in many parts of the Alps, it's hard to imagine what could top it! But as every seasonaire knows; "there's always next season..."

2018/19 is going to be just as good at Skiworld. With over 100 ski chalets in 17 resorts (15 in Europe and 2 in the USA), Skiworld have loads of options for winter work. Applying couldn't be easier either with our trimmed-down, quick-fire online application form. Just have your CV and cover letter* ready to attach and you'll be done in less than 10 minutes!

We look for people who are energetic, charismatic and supportive above all else. If you have requisite skills in sales, hospitality, cooking, a trade or anything else that's great, but it's not essential. As long as you're over 18 and have a keen work ethic, a desire to impress and a visible team spirit, we want to receive your application today! You don't have to have skied or snowboarded before, and you don't even have to when you're there (but you'd be mad not to try it). A winter in the mountains is 6 months like no other. Just ask anyone who's done it and you'll discover: Once a seasonaire, always a seasonaire.

We have a variety of roles available so no matter what your skill set, provided you're aged 18 or above, you can find a role that'll work for you. Chalet Hosts, Resort Hosts (reps), Chalet Managers, Resort Managers, Area Managers, Flexi-Hosts, Chefs, Chalet Chefs, Ski Lodge Hosts, Maintenance personnel, Drivers, Trainers, Accountants, Bar Managers… The list is almost endless!

Working for Skiworld in The French Alps

Founded in 1982 we are the UK’s largest independent ski company, with an abundance of new winter season roles every year in Austria, France, Switzerland and North America. Whether you consider yourself to be a whiz in the kitchen, a logical leader, or you know you’re great with people we have jobs to suit a huge variety of skillsets… from Chalet Hosts, to Resort Managers and Chefs to Finance Administrators. What began as one man's love of the mountains now runs in the blood of everyone at Skiworld; and we can't wait to share it with you! We are Made in the Mountains.

Why are Skiworld so good to work for?

We operate in 18 top ski resorts, each of them special in their own way. From the Après ski havens of Val d’Isere and St Anton with their challenging slopes- to picturesque, traditional ski towns such as La Rosiere and Zermatt there is a resort that everyone can call home. We truly consider each individual when placing them in both role and resort- from personality, ski ability and skill set to ensure they get the most from their season. Through the friends you make, the challenges you overcome and the memories you create, a ski season is likely to be the best 6 months of your life! So what are you waiting for?

Ski Season Jobs

Most seasonal workers know that skiing is a winter sport, and that if you're planning to work as a ski ‘seasonnaire' your job will last from roughly mid-November to the end of April. The bulk of the skiing public take their holidays between mid-December and mid-April so as winter season staff your roles will entail some set-up and clean-down time at each end of the season.

Part-Ski Seasons
There are some exceptions to this way of working though. Whether you have prior engagements - a full-time job, travels or studying being the most popular – or you just hadn't thought about ski seasons before, many Ski Operators look to employ staff throughout the season. This is a perfect opportunity to experience one of the greatest life experiences going – living, skiing and working in the mountains

Top 7 Reasons to join a ski season late

1. You'll miss the difficult and demanding Christmas and New Year period
2. You'll dodge the dark and sometimes bitterly cold month of January
3. The resort teams will be well-oiled and able to train you very efficiently and quickly
4. The weather is improving by the day
5. The snow-base (the amount of snow that's compacted on the ski slopes) is pretty much at its maximum, making for amazing skiing and snowboarding conditions
6. The days are longer meaning more time on the slopes
7. There are events such as live music and ski competitions happening more often as the spring skiing season progresses

A Great Ski Season Employer

As a purely winter season employer, and one of the most established in the industry with over 35 years' experience; Skiworld are a great option to consider if you're looking for a ski season job. Amongst other benefits they offer a full employment package including return travel from the UK, your accommodation, food, lift pass and ski or snowboard equipment, plus you'll get two days off per week.

Skiworld are still taking applications for this winter season up until the end of March, so you're in with a great opportunity to be offered a job as a chalet host, resort rep, maintenance person, kitchen porter, chef, driver or one of many other roles!
