What we do not think about, is how many motivated employees are required all over various departments in order to ensure a smooth operation all over the 5 regions of Ski amadé. That’s starts from snow cat drivers, over lift engineers, waiters & cooks, ticket sellers, info points to skiing instructors and salesmen, organization teams and marketing people in the offices, hotels, shops, skischool… – omg, I’m already running out of breath :D

They all work, where we are spending our vacations

The Ski amadé Team told me, that they receive many job requests in all areas every autmn. In order to that I would like to dedicate to the huge job diversity. So today I would like to dedicate myself to the great variety of jobs and give a few tips on what you might also like.

Lift companies all around

They ensure the best slope conditions

Let’s start with the lift team. Without snow and great slopes, nothing works in a skiing area. That’s why we need the snowmaker and slope preparator teams. They ensure sufficient snow amounts on the slopes and prepare them every single morning to a perfect state. In advance the lift engineers are responsible for the maintenance to the lift systems. In addition, there is the need of daily controls and routine works for a smooth and safe operation. Furthermore, it requires friendly staff at the lift station cashier desks for issuing ski-passes or for any kind of assistance. In the background you can find plenty of people in offices for administration activities, accounting, controlling and marketing.

Ski-hut magic

Unforgettable culinary moments

Throughout the day we meet ski-hut owners with their teams. They take care of our physical well-being and unforgettable culinary moments with e.g., cheese spaetzle or Kaiserschmarrn. In the background you can find team members from the kitchen crew to the dishwasher guys. Quite similar is the operation in the restaurants and gastronomy companies down the valleys. In the hotel industry, there is the additional need of staffing the reception, housekeeping, wellness, childcare, house technic department as well as various offices. They all have to work together to guarantee a wonderful stay in the region.

Sports connoisseur

Best advisory

In multiple sport shops you can take advantage of friendly and professional advising staff.

They are all up to date about the newest skies, snowboards, and boots trends and how to adjust them according to the needs of their customers. For those who won’t invest into new ski equipment, they even have the service know-how to bring your old skies in best possible state.

The shops are perfectly equipped with all components to enable different sport exercises. Decide for yourself if you prefer to buy or rent outfits, helmets, ski-glasses of protectors and much more.

Slope heroes

Cliché versus reality

Skiing in Ski amadé - Austria's greatest ski paradise

Let’s continue with the next occupational group. We are talking about skiing instructors and the know the preconceptions: waving downhill, dark sun tanned, real party people beloved & hyped by their tourists. Sounds like a real dream job, or? Cliché and reality is quite different.

Skiing instructors spend every day on the slope, no matter if cloudless or sunny weather. Especially taking care of children is a huge responsibility. Imagine when they need to rescue the students out of suspicious situations.

So don’t judge to hard about them and grant them some chillout & party time on the mountains.

Surrounded by one of the most beautiful regions in the country. There is a wide range of leisure activities for a well-deserved breaks.
