Well i guess that depends who you want to work for - the 'ski industry' has a pretty broad scope. It isn't just made up of core ski and outerwear companies - although perhaps working for these guys it is more about who you know.
Think about the bigger picture - why do you want to be in the 'industry'? I'm guessing it's to ski right? Or somehow be involved in something you love? Well if its for the second reason you need to be more specific - what for you would bring skiing related enjoyment to your job? Designing products for example?
However - if it's the first reason - you want to have more opportunity to ski - then there is a wide choice available to you.. think of everything that makes the industry function. I'm not talking about some underground tall T company, but more like logistics, lift manufacturers, snow-cats, food/drink etc etc. Think of all the suppliers working within the industry - many of these are likely to be based near the mountains.
If you do want to work for a company that you consider directly involved in the industry - e.g. a ski manufacturer - its still not always who you know. Again think big brands - AMER sports, Scott etc. I work for a digital agency in Switzerland, on websites for a number of ski industry related brands. I also get to ski every powder day and every weekend. The gondola is outside my front door. That's as much ski industry that i need.
...and i didn't land in this role through who i know
