    I suspect if someone responded who could demonstrate a passion for retail with experience in *any* field, combined with demonstrable knowledge of snow equipment then they'd prolly get a damned good hearing. Perhaps the wording culls such creatures a bit early in the process.

    Those with 2 years in the trade, with boot fitting experience may pass over the op due to the first bullet point ( casual). Maybe offer full time/ flex to suitable applicants.
