Latest Ski Season Jobs
Snow lovers! Australia is calling for you!
Australian ski seasons run from mid June until late September, due to dependence on the snow the ski season usually ends as a result of the snow having disappeared. It is known that the Australian snow is not as good as elsewhere in the world, with the unreliability and fast disappearance, yet the snow in Australia can be incredible when it dumps down and peak time arrives. Due to the warmer temperatures, the snow does tend to be wetter and heavier than Europe and North America, most days during the ski season do not go below 0 degrees Celsius, so the snow can be inconsistent as a result; some days may be perfect powder days whilst some can be icy.
The best snow in Australia comes in August, mid season, where the natural snowfall is fairly similar across the majority of resorts, yet of course the larger and higher mountains are appreciated for their increased snow-making and snow coverage.
Despite the regular changes in snow fall, ski season jobs in Australia are becoming much more popular! Snow lovers are spoiled for choice with local ski options, with snow for more than three months out of the year located in the mountain ranges of New South Wales and Victoria. These Australian resorts more than hold their own on the world stage – after all, not many places offer ski facilities starting in June!
Australian ski passes are generally much cheaper than the European Alps as the resorts are much smaller. Those looking for ski season jobs in Australia may however find it easier to find a job that you would struggle to get in Europe, such as lift operator work and instructing snow sports. Australian resorts also offer the common wide variety of roles including jobs such as bar, reception or maintenance work, drivers, nannies, chefs, reps and chalet staff, along with the chance to become a ski or snowboard instructor. This means that ski season jobs in Australia may have a varied weekly schedule; for example, one week may consist of working in the morning, hitting the slopes for a few hours and then heading back into work mode for the evening shift, and the next day would be the opposite. Best of both worlds!
