You’ll need to pass a few courses but if you’re truly dedicated to skiing it won’t get in your way.

Become A Tour Guide

Teach English

Jobs are in abundance, however you may require a certification – thankfully it doesn’t take too long to get it. You can vary your work too, teaching younger or older children and also take short contracts, so you can teach in a few different countries, although staying in one would afford the benefit of getting to learn a new language.
