Description

This really is a ‘ski job’ with a difference, and it would be fair to say it might be one of the few of its kind on offer in the industry.

We are looking for proficient skiers who would also enjoy other mountain activities, as we offer not only informal guided skiing days to our guests, but also snowshoe and winter walking, as well as cross country skiing, five days a week.

As a Ski Guide / Walk Organiser you would spend half of your time out on the hill accompanying guests skiing, snowshoeing, and even a bit of cross country skiing. The other half of your time is spent in the chalet doing a range of tasks from domestic help (room cleans, helping at breakfast and dinner) to manning the bar, airport transfer driving, and lots and lots of guest interaction.

There are no corporate sales targets to meet, so you can actually be yourself and engage with the guests on a one to one level, sharing your local knowledge and just helping people to get the best out of the area. We don’t even put you in a uniform! Each evening we meet with our guests for a drink and a chat to discuss the next day’s activities and offer local advice and information. At dinner in the chalets you not only help our Chalet Cooks to serve and wash up between courses, but you sit and eat with the guests as a host, enjoying great food, a glass of wine or two, and the banter and spontaneous enjoyment that comes from such occasions.

Although you would get time to ski independently through the week, one of the principle pleasures of this job is enjoying the various winter activities with our guests. If you are looking for a ‘party winter’ then this is not the job for you! The Dolomite villages are very quiet in terms of après ski. If, however, you genuinely enjoy your outdoor activities, if you enjoy building relationships with people and are not afraid of a bit of hard work this has the potential to provide a fantastic experience.

Requirements

Skiing: You need to be a proficient skier, confident on any grade of groomed slope and happy to accompany groups of mixed ability guests.

Walking: Reasonable experience of walking in wilderness or mountainous terrain, confident with map reading and general navigation skills. You need to be relatively fit and happy to accompany groups of guests on any grade of walk whilst enjoying the day yourself. Outdoor qualifications are a bonus but not essential.

Driving: Because of the airport transfers we run you would also need to have a driving licence and at least one year's experience of driving, preferably more. You would need to be confident about driving a nine seater minibus on mountain roads in winter conditions too!
