    Hi all,
    Just wondering if anyone has experience finding a job in any euro ski resort. Finding it difficult to find any avenues that don't require British citizenship, and the clock's ticking...
    Or should I just go Japan/Canada...

    I worked in the French ski resorts for a few years in the early 90s,but had dual uk/ Aust passports.
    The main issue is that to work for British tour/chalet companies your point of hire was from the U/K , normally London and your pay was deposited into a U.K bank account , and you were covered by the NHS(like medicare).
    Pretty sure they sometimes did employ Aussies that had a certain type of youth visa (under 26) that allowed them to work and stay for 12 months.
    But I have no idea on how it worked.
    Maybe just try to be around in January as some dont work out and they have to look for replacement staff.
    Most positions are finalized around September /early October .
