The Role 

This really is a winter 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.  Above all else, this is a very genuine hospitality role, and if you are a people person, it can be very rewarding. You need to love spending time with our guests as much as you enjoy spending time on the mountain.  You time is split evenly between hosting ski and snowshoe days with our guests and spending your day in the resort villages.  With a very high rate of returning staff, we are particularly keen to hear from those interested in coming back to work a summer season in one of our many European locations as a ‘Walk Organiser’.

Hospitality – each evening we rely on our walk organisers to host an informal ‘office hour’. This is a chance for our guests to use your local knowledge to plan their next day in the mountains. Whether it be information about one of our organised walks, self-guiding, or helping to book a local activity.
