Gianni Merone has worked as a PGL ski rep twice a year for the past four years without interruption to his normal career.
Unlike most other ski tour operators PGL don’t offer full season ski employment.
The maximum work period is four weeks with most reps choosing to sandwich in a couple of weeks’ work in between their normal employment.
PGL operate skiing and snowboarding trips for schools and groups and jobs are available in Austria, Italy, France, Switzerland, the Czech Republic and the United States. Applicants must be available for the February half term week, which in 2011 is the 19th to the 25th.
Applicants should have extensive experience of working with secondary school aged children or youth groups, excellent organisational abilities and customer service skills and skiing or snowboarding experience in a ski resort.
German, Italian or French language skills will help your application reach the top of the pile but are not essential.
In return expect to be rewarded with a 6 day lift pass, ski or board equipment, full board accommodation, transport to and from the resort and full winter sports insurance.
