Are you looking to spend a winter working in the Alps?  You’ll need some great skills at any sort of technical trade – not necessarily to a professional level, but somebody able to turn their hand to most things.  You’ll also need to have a great personality, have plenty to talk about and a commitment to deliver fantastic customer service to our guests.  Ski Amis is a long-established, family run business and has 20 catered chalets in the top resorts of the Three Valleys and Paradiski in France.  We have a 50 strong team in resort and we take pride in our staff and the high quality service they provide – we expect you to work hard and be committed to delivering these levels of quality and in return we provide you with all the tools and support you need to make this task as easy as possible, with plenty of piste time guaranteed and a flexible remuneration package so you can make the most of your season.
