Workers Guide to European Ski Resorts
The relatively warm, huge ski stations of the various European mountain ranges attract millions of skiers and snowboarders every year. British visitors alone spend millions of pounds in the process, creating plenty of jobs for both locals and visiting foreign workers. The massive resorts in France provide probably the easiest climate for finding work as you go, but the Austrian friendliness to foreigners, cheap beer of Andorra, and large immaculate Italian resorts should not be ignored.
