Anyway I was also talking about doing a gap course etc but got advised to just do a few seasons instead, so I took the advice and I've secured a position as a Ski Host this coming winter season.
BUT, I speak decent French and Russian so i've requested to be placed in the paradiski or 3 vallee areas. However I remember awhile back there was some big commotion about guides getting arrested all the time in France, and I'd like to know how the situation resolved itself. Are guides allowed in France still? My friend who teaches in Switzerland every season tells me guiding in France is still a bad idea and guides in France do very little actual guiding due to issues that arose with the French.
Any insight or information is appreciated.
