We understand your motive for seeking seasonal employment in the Alps is to experience the fun and flavours of life both on and off the slopes and we very much hope you will enjoy your time with us in the mountains; however this is a responsible position that requires a responsible attitude.
If you feel you have the right attitude to join our friendly team and are ready to work hard when you’re on duty and your main leisure focus when off duty is to ski or snowboard and enjoy a relaxed and friendly social scene rather than partying hard every night then we’d like to hear from you.
Mountain Express has built a reputation for providing an excellent, reliable and professional service and our drivers must ensure that this reputation is upheld and enhanced.

On a typical weekend, you would normally be required to make two return journeys each day between resorts and airports which can easily total in the region of 500 km (approx. 300 miles) per day on a busy Saturday and maybe occasionally the same on Sunday. Each winter we have many returning drivers and this says all you need to know about how good it is to work for Mountain Express!
- Fluent English speaker (basic French useful but not essential)
- A positive and flexible « can do » attitude to all duties.
- Excellent interpersonal skills, friendly and outgoing & personal hygiene essential.
