Ski for free, all over the world. And get paid for it…

For the second consecutive year, Ski.com are searching for candidates who can document what it’s like to experience six of the hottest ski destinations around the world. This year though, the Aspen-based company is looking to hire 12 ski bums rather than just one to win the ‘dream job’.

“Last fall, for Ski.com Epic Dream Job, we received nearly 1,200 video entries and a very passionate community formed online in support of the applicants,” Dan Sherman, Ski.com chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “This year, instead of hiring one person, we are now looking for candidates to fill 12 open positions who will visit six incredible destinations around the world while receiving products and services from an all-star group of partners.”

The twelve qualified candidates (two per destination) will be hired to travel to top destinations featured below via United Airlines. The ideal candidates must have a serious desire to travel to some of the most amazing mountain destinations on the planet, must be able to ski and/or snowboard at an advanced intermediate level and above and must love après, mingling with locals and documenting their travel experiences.

  1. Hello Snow Brains I want to ask a question ( advice) before I spend time and emotional hopefulness in apply for one of the 12 slots with Ski.com

    I am from Washington State, am 54. Will be 55 Dec 29th and I will retire from a rippin career in Maintenance Engineering for Boeing.
    Yup– I deployed the world, and brought maintenance data for aircraft air side to the mechanics on an iPad.

    BUT— here is the deal—I am a huge skier, and honestly my husband and I are rabid ski junkies and we rip it. We both wear of packs,. probes and peeps and hit some pretty serious terrain.

    Do you honestly thing there be any part of ski.com marketing ploy for one of the 12 sets or people to be me or us?

    Have a great season

    Amy

    1. Amy – I know nothing about the qualifications they’re looking for but I’d say, go for it! It’s important to consider the demographic of skiers these days. When my husband and I retire (we are in the 35-40 age group bucket), we are hoping to follow the same path you’ve taken. Would love to hear your perspective if you are chosen, especially as a couple!
