The Ski Week Event Crew

 

THE COMPANY

The Ski Week is a series of boutique ski festivals occurring in some of the most iconic mountain destinations around the world. Since its launch in 2014 in Obertauern, Austria, the event has grown beyond Europe and in addition to its Austria event runs trips in Japan, the USA and Canada.

ROLE

We are on the hunt for Event Interns to join our team of incredible event staff. This is your opportunity to become a key figure in the execution of one of the most mind-blowing experiences to ever hit the slopes and gain real-world event experience in a fun, young, environment.

We are seeking passionate, young-hearted people who have a natural flair for events and guest relations. You can apply to our events in Canada, Austria or Aspen Snowmass. It’s a high-intensity role so be prepared to work hard in a fast-paced environment. In return, you’ll get to ski some of the best mountains in the world and meet truly amazing people. All event crew will be trained and sent detailed information outlining daily plans, destination details and logistics, prior to the start of the event. It is hugely important that our crew is energetic at all times, understands the stamina needed for mountain life and most importantly, like us, do everything with a smile.

So, whether you have already been on The Ski week & witnessed the magic first hand, or you have had a read and decided you want a winter to remember, please get in touch. We’d love for you to join us in the mountains.
