For anyone who would rather be standing on a pair of skis than sitting in a stale cubicle, this job’s for you. The opportunity to ditch those 9-5 days for two months of traveling to the world’s most famed mountain destinations is here. Not only will this job take you skiing around the globe, but it pays. Well. Draft up that letter of resignation and start your application because you could earn $10,000 just by skiing for two months. Ski bums, meet the Epic Dream Job.
North America’s largest ski vacation provider, Ski.com, has partnered up with the Epic Pass to develop what might possibly be the most epic of dream jobs to celebrate the pass’ 10-year anniversary and its 65 destinations around the world.
One incredibly lucky person will be hired to travel the world for two months, skiing or riding 18 of the 65 destinations available on the Epic Pass, including Verbier, Switzerland, Courchevel, France and Hakuba Valley, Japan. The Epic Dream Job holder will travel to seven different countries across three continents via United Airlines decked out head-to-toe in gear from brands Helly Hansen, Rossignol and Oakley for the months of January and February in 2019. He or she will be able to capture every enviable experience with video equipment from GoPro, get custom snow reports from OpenSnow and earn a $10,000 paycheck for living out the most epic ski vacation.
The ideal candidate for the Epic Dream Job is a travel junkie ready to ski or snowboard some of the most revered mountain destinations in the United States, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, France and Japan. Aside from the physical requirements, this job entails some serious après, mingling with locals and generating drool-worthy content.
“We have been in the business of ski travel for 47 years and even our team of experienced, well-traveled Mountain Travel Experts haven’t been on a ski trip this epic,” said Dan Sherman, chief marketing officer of Ski.com in a press release. “We are excited to partner with the Epic Pass and other ski and travel brands to hire an adventurer who will highlight what it’s like to literally travel around the world on a single ski trip.”
To apply for the Epic Dream Job, interested candidates must submit an application video explaining what makes them perfect for the position in 60 seconds or less. Candidates can apply by posting their application video to Instagram tagging @skicom, @epicpass and using the hashtag #EpicDreamJob now through October 15. Ski.com will announce its selection for the job on October 30, 2018.
