Dream Job Alert: Get Paid to Ski the World’s Most Famous Peaks This Winter
Ski.com is choosing just 12 lucky rippers, so stop whatever you’re doing and apply right now
How does an all-expenses paid trip to a world-class ski resort sound? Now add some extra cash on top. Intrigued?
For the second year in a row, ski.com (the largest provider of ski vacations in North America), is on the hunt for 12 lucky candidates to document what it’s like to explore six of the top ski destinations in the world. Starting today, you can apply to be sent to Aspen-Snowmass, CO; Jackson Hole, WY; Big Sky, MT; Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta; Chamonix Mont-Blanc, France, or Niseko United, Japan. You’ll fly United Airlines and spend 5-7 days as a VIP on the slopes decked out in gear from Stio, Black Crows, Giro, and GoPro, while receiving custom weather forecasts from OpenSnow. What’s more, you’ll also experience the best each resort has to offer off-mountain, from special meals to spa treatments. Last year’s winner went paragliding (with skis on!) directly onto a run. Though we can’t guarantee that’ll be on any of this year’s itineraries, you get the picture–it’s gonna be epic. And to top it all off, you’ll have a check for $2,000 to burn during your trip. The only requirements to apply? Advanced-intermediate skills on skis or a board–plus a love of travel, aprés, mingling with locals, and documenting the entire experience.
Ready to do this? Pick a destination, then submit an application video between today and October 29, explaining in 90 seconds or less why you should be hired, and what draws you to your chosen resort. Note: You can (and should!) apply to multiple destinations, and will need to submit a video for each one. Ski.com will choose two people for each destination, so you can either apply solo or as a team of two.
Apply here, and find out if you’re one of the lucky 12 when winners are announced on November 19. Good luck!
