Ski Guide Jobs

Ski Resort Guide JobsWorking as a ski guide in a ski resort really is the ultimate job for any season worker. Lets be honest who wants to be stuck selling tickets or waiting on tables when you could be on the mountain enjoying the snow and meeting new people! The great thing about being a ski guide is that you don't need to have any specific qualifications like a ski instructor or a member of mountain safety.

Your basic job description is to accompany guests on the mountain and guide them around areas that you think will be enjoyable for them, this involves making sure you understand the level of all the guest and finding appropriate terrain for them to enjoy. Normally you will work with the same group for a couple of days before they get comfortable and figure out the mountain.

Ski guide jobs are also available with various youth groups that visit resorts for ski trips. Certain companies offer school ski holidays and provide a guide to accompany children and supervise them on the mountain. This can be a lot of fun as the groups will generally have a teach who accompanies them and is responsible for keeping order so you are there to basically have a blast with the kids and enjoy the mountain.

Finding a position as a ski guide can be tough as this is one of the most popular ski resort jobs for obvious reasons. We would highly recommend applying for these positions in the early summer and being sure to apply to different resorts companies to increase your chances of success. Also, it is important to remember that if you are planning on applying for a winter resort jobs as a ski guide you must be a competent skier / snowboarder and also it would help to be familiar with the resort you are planning on working at.

What They Say....

"Working as a ski resort guide is certainly one of the best winter resort jobs out there. I worked for a month as a ski resort guide in Switzerland guiding groups of school children during school ski trips. The job was so much fun and I got to make friends with other season workers from all over the world."
