This is a post for people to reply on who have completed a season. 

We want to know things like,


What to pack?

What is shared accommodation like?

How much money to bring?

How much time on the slopes are we going to get realistically?

How many hours are you expected to work?


I am going with WorkASeason so what is this company like?


Any replies are welcome!

This is what my Ski Season veteran friend sent to me!! 

Clothes

Long sleeve tops

Couple of T-shirts

Track suit bottoms for bumming around in accom

Leggings as an extra layer!

Jumpers

Long pyjamas

Couple of going out outfits

Gloves (non-ski ones)

Scarf

Snow boots

Flipflops/pumps (sounds stupid but when the snow’s melted on the roads towards the end of the season it’s a nightmare having to wear your snow boots)

You won’t need heels, nobody wears them in-resort J

 

Toiletries

Save weight on luggage by waiting until you get to resort to buy heavy things like shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, moisturiser, etc.

Dry shampoo (hard to get in-resort so take loads if you use it!)

Sun cream

Vaseline / lip balm

Favourite foundations/lipsticks as they’re hard to get when you’re out there

 

Ski stuff

Ski socks (3-4 pairs)

Base layers (top and bottom)

Jacket 

Salopettes 

Goggles x 1 

Ski gloves x 2 

Beanie

Ski scarf

Hoodie for march and april when it’s warmer

Very good idea to invest in a ski helmet. You can simply attach it to your hand luggage for the flight overseas (usually ÂŁ60-100 average price)

 

Other stuff…

Pounds and Euros 

Driving licence

Debit / credit cards

Passport

European plug converters (1 or 2)

E111 card


Ipad/Laptop

One of the best pieces of advise i had was bumming around close, for your down time you want clothes which you would lounge around in. Toothbrush, amazing how many people still forget theres!

Best tip I've heard for plugs - Instead of bringing or buying 2 or 3 plug adapters. Just buy 1 adapter and bring a uk mutli-plug
