St Anton Work

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

At the end of this year I intend to spend a season working in St Anton Austria, in the Arlberg region. I was wondering if anyone has previously worked in St Anton or in Austria and has any advice for someone seeking work there. All advice accepted

Welcome to EpicSki!  

We're planning on a Gathering at St Anton for 2014.  Hopefully someone with some first hand knowledge will pop in and give you the info you're looking for.

Not worked there personally, but lots of friends have. Easiest way is probably through a UK Tour Operator, not certain if you can work there on a working holiday visa though, do you have a a UK/EU passport? How's your German?

I have an English passport and have applied to a couple of Uk Operators so far with no luck yet. My german is basic to non existant. Do you know if many Australians work there?

Tons of Austrians work in Thredbo/Perisher.  They are likley your best bet for getting info/hook-ups.  If you are doing the season in Jindy you should find contacts easy enough.

That's actually a good idea although I'm not doing a season in Jindy, although at this point I don't think anyone is....

Yeah, its looking bleak...but spend as much time there as you can, "network".  You'll find the right people - and likley the "right people" are looking for you as well.  Its common for supervisors in the northern hemisphere when doing seasons down under to be looking for at least a few hires for the northern winter.

 

Meeting people in the flesh is always a 1000 times better then any paper resume.

I stayed with one of my friends whilst she was working there, and there were a few Aussies, sure it's much less than Whistler or Niseko though.

 

Why are you specifically set on St Anton? Do you have much work experience? You really should be able to find a UK TO job, the problem would be that it's unlikely you could specify St Anton. If you turned up early season with enough cash to last a few weeks I'm sure you could find something in a bar or restaurant.

I want to go specifically to St Anton becuase I've heard it is the best ski destination in Europe, my dad's been their and I know a family friend who has worked there. However I've applied to jobs with tour operators at several other resorts.
