A mainstay of seasonnaires worldwide, working in a snowboard shop has its perks. Free tuning, endless piles of free gear, testing the new boards, and – hopefully – powder-day clauses. On the downside you’ll be asked a lot of very dumb questions and be dealing with customers’ smelly feet for a large proportion of your mornings.
Also, the pay won’t set you up to buy a chalet, but it will be enough to just get you through the season with an incredible amount of riding. You don’t need much experience, but you do need to turn up, on time, no matter how bad the raging hangover.
