In resort you will fill in a form which will allow you to receive a discounted seasonnaire ski pass for the whole season. You will need to provide the ski pass office with a photo, your contract and a letter of employment from Jelly & Ice-Cream. Terms and conditions apply. You can obtain this from resort. If employment is terminated with Jelly & Ice-Cream, you will forfeit your ski pass and will be subject to the full tourist rate to keep it.
-Ski and snowboard hire-
We are lucky enough to be able to provide our workers with *free ski and snowboard hire for the whole season courtesy of Snowberry Ski hire shop.
Accomodation- Where will I live?
You will be pleased to hear that we don’t provide you with a ‘package’ like most tour operators. We understand that you are financially independent adults who have individual needs. It is your job to source and pay for your own accommodation. You are paid much higher rate than your average seasonnaire so that if you have a partner, or a particular friend you want to live with then that is your choice. We find that nannies who find their own accommodation will get a better deal, will socialize with more people outside of work and enjoy their job and season more. However, as it is daunting to some,, we are able to recommend to you several reputable English spoken landlords which rent out to seasonnaires like yourselves.
A full FAQ sheet will be provided during the application stage.
* All hire equipment must be returned at the end of the season in the same condition it was supplied in. You are responsible for all equipment if it is lost or stolen and are liable for any costs to replace it. Any costs may be deducted from your wages. If employment is terminated, all equipment must be returned within 24hours to the shop or you may be charged a late fee. All equipment must be signed for by the employee agreeing to the terms and conditions.
