JibbaTheHuttThere are a few different options for seasonal work
Chalet hosting - running a small chalet usually catering for 8-12 people. average working day is 7-11 then 6-10 with 1 full day off a week. Can be a good job if like cooking and don't mind cleaning too much. in 99% of cases you'll get you accomodation and food payed for, and in a lot of cases your lift pass too. As a result your pay will be lower 100-200 euros a week is pretty standard.
restaurant work - waiting, dishwashing, chefing. Usually evening work but sometimes lunch aswell. probably get better riding time with a restaurant job but you wont get accom or food payed for. Chances are you can expect to receive a better pay rate as you'll have to pay for the essentials.
bar work - pretty self explanatory. Lots of fun and you get to meet lots pf people so best if you're sociable and dont mind staying up in return for lots of potential riding hours. one of the most competitive jobs so experience is pretty much essential. most wont have accom provided but others will, again you can expect a higher wage thsan chalet work for few hours.
rental/retail - mostly work through the day but will most likely be split into shifts so you get either mornings or afternoons off and evenings. Good because its probably one of the more interesting jobs, and usually the pay is ok for the hours you work.
