The 10 Best Jobs in Snowboarding

Want to head to the slopes for a season or maybe forever? These 10 jobs can help you decide what to do.

Sure there’s serious risk, and you literally have other people’s lives in your hands every day, but there is no other job in snowboarding that guarantees this much powder and this much vertical.

It sure beats being an accountant. Of course it’s a vocation that takes time. Certainly, your CV has to have more than a season on the drink in Meribel.

You’ll need to start as a ski-patroller or mountain guide, and have all the necessary wilderness first-responder courses, avalanche safety courses and guiding qualifications under your belt. Oh, and a head for heights helps.
