10 Things You Didn’t Know About Working a Ski Season

Fri June 07, 2019

Every year we send over 200 fresh-faced seasonaires out to the French and Austrian Alps to embark upon the adventure of a lifetime working in one of our 10 resorts. We employ people from all walks of life united by one thing: a desire to immerse themselves in resort life for up to 5 months and ski, ski ski. Learn the ropes quickly and you could be skiing up to 5 hours day in, day out, for the best part of half the year.

Almost everyone in the UK team has worked a season at some point, so we’ve complied a list of the top 10 things we wish we’d known before embarking on a winter season:

And the Winner Is…January Staff Photo Competition

Fri February 08, 2019

Where’s the best tree run on a snowy day? What mountain restaurant should we try for the ultimate panoramic view in the sunshine? Which bar should we head to for a cheeky après ski session? Get chatting to your chalet hosts and you’ll soon discover that they’re walking, talking ski holiday guide books, with the kind of insider knowledge which only comes from living in their chosen resort for five months over the winter season.   

Each month we challenge the team to submit their favourite ski holiday photo from the past 30 days. The submissions vary from stunning views over the Alps to dramatic wipe outs (which we often suspect might be sent in without the subject’s permission). Here is the shortlist from January…
