If you're interested in a ski resort job this winter, now is the time to be looking. Ski resorts are hiring and job fairs are scheduled starting this month, so don't wait until the last minute to get started on your job search if you're look for a ski job on or off the slopes.
You don't even need to ski or ride - there are off-slope positions available in a variety of fields. If you're lucky, your job could turn into a year-round position because many ski resorts are open year round.
Most ski resort jobs come with great perks like free lift tickets and discounts at restaurants and ski shops. Housing is also available at many resorts. Some jobs include health insurance and other employee benefits.
CoolWorks has a list of ski resort jobs posted including ski and snowboard instructors, ski patrol positions, hospitality, marketing, and retail jobs. Follow CoolWorks on Twitter or like Coolworks on Facebook to get the latest job postings fast.
Most have employment information on their web sites and About.com's Skiing Guide, Mike Doyle, has a directory of US and international ski resorts you can use to check ski resorts listed by location. He's also got tips for what some might consider the best job, or the best not-a-real-job - how to be a ski bum.
