Workers Guide to Ski Resorts
Welcome to the Season Workers winter resorts review pages. 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. If you are looking to work as an instructor
in Europe, you will probably find it easiest to get work as a foreigner in Austria
where regulations are less strict than other parts of Europe, especially France.
If you are from the UK you don’t need any kind of work permit to get a job in the
European Alps, or anywhere else in the EU for that matter. Working a season in the
USA or Canada with a UK operator is only normally possible having completed a season
for them in Europe first but finding work directly over there is not as hard as
you might think once the Visa situation is sorted. All reviews have been compiled
by riders and skiiers who have sent a season in the resort they are reviewing. For
each resort there are sometimes extra features such as 'A day in the life of...'
and links to snow reports and related info. There is also a messageboard for each
resort for you to chat about going off to do a season there, find jobs and accomodation
or get a first hand view on what each resort is all about.
