Certainly one of the most challenging ski season jobs is that of resort manager. In this position you will be responsible for all aspects of how your company operates in the resort you are responsible for. This role is primarily connected to European resorts where tour operators will offer guests a complete package for their winter ski holiday.
The job of ski resort manager requires you overlook all staff members within the resort that work for your company and deal with all the different aspects of logistics to ensure guests have a great time on their trip.
In addition to managing all the resort staff working in the ski resort you will also be the point of contact between the resort and the head corporate office, you will be responsible for putting together reports and updating head office on how the season is going.
In this role you must have excellent organizational skills, be able to communicate well and motivate others. Working in a ski resort for a season may seem like one long holiday but it can in fact be very hard work and being able to motivate staff members to maintain high levels of customer service is part of the job.
If you are working in Europe you will be required to have a good understanding of various languages such as French, Spanish, German and Italian. Most ski companies also require that you are a competent skier with a clean driving license.
What they say...
"I worked in Sestriere for a season as a resort manager after completing two seasons as a resort rep. It was a great experience but definitely a lot of hard work. Managing staff and keeping everyone motivated is probably the hardest part of the job. I decided to apply for this position as I was trying to improve my work experience for a position in management, if you want to have more fun and less pressure you may be better off applying for a less stressful positions like a regular resort rep or chalet host."
