Being a ski bum isn’t a dead end path any longer. Ski.com is hiring one fortunate ski or snowboard aficionado for what they’ve appropriately dubbed an “Epic Dream Job.” If chosen, you’ll travel the world for two months shredding powder and experiencing 18 different mountain resorts along the way.
The chosen one will travel to seven countries on three continents in a two-month span this winter, experiencing the best of Vail Resorts’ famed Epic Pass — the worldwide ski pass that provides access to over 40 ski resorts around the world. The itinerary reads like a lifetime bucket list for avid powder hounds, stopping at resorts in the United States, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, France, and Japan.
It’s not just the on-mountain part that makes this the gig of a lifetime. Top ski brands from Helly Hansen to Oakley to Rossignol will deck you out with brand new gear, and GoPro will hook you up with a camera and equipment to document the journey. There’s also a $10,000 paycheck, but you won’t have time to spend it between all of the awesomeness this trip promises. “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 Ski.com’s Chief Marketing Officer Dan Sherman in a press release. “We are excited to partner with the Epic Pass and other iconic 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.”
The application period runs from September 5th to October 15th, and you must submit a video telling the staff at Ski.com why you deserve the position. If this is how you’d like to spend your winter, get your video equipment ready and apply here. If you prefer to show off your social media savvy, post your application video on Instagram and tag @skicom and @epicpass and be sure to use the hashtag #EpicDreamJob. The winner will be announced on October 30th.
