For people who love the snow, skiing or snowboarding, it’s the perfect time to get a side job and earn money by doing something you enjoy. Now that it’s the ski season, having a seasonal job at ski resorts will give you a lot of perks like free ski passes, discounts on equipment and more. It’s a great opportunity to work and play at the same time.
But ski season jobs aren’t just limited to outdoor work, there are also tons of indoor workforce needed. Here’s a list of job ideas that you can apply to this ski season.
1. Snowsports Instructor
If you are not yet a qualified, you can enroll in a ski & snowboard training course and get a guaranteed offer of employment as a Ski Instructor upon finishing the course. You can become a qualified Ski Instructor not only in the US but in Canada, Japan, New Zealand or Switzerland as well.
2. Ski Resort Manager
If you’ve already experienced working in ski resorts in the past, you can use that experience to step up and apply for a management job.
3. Chalet Managers
This is the other side of ski resorts. The role of Chalet Managers is to provide guests with an excellent holiday and making sure that their needs are taken care of.
4. Ski Chef Jobs
Now if you have the skills, you can apply as a chef or catering staff in ski resorts. Most resorts don’t require a professional sous chef not unless you are applying as a head chef. For less demanding chef jobs, previous hospitality or customer service experience are okay.
5. Ticket Scanning Agent
This position is guest service-oriented and is perfect for those who have upbeat and outgoing attitude. Your role is to greet and engage guests while scanning tickets. This also requires patience, politeness and respect since you will be answering questions that guests might have.
