We had some french kids steal and burn a couple of cars this summer. So it can get kinda out of hand.
There is a big difference between the professional positions and the hourly/seasonal people. I work in the professional area of the ski resort and I do not have to deal with all the shit the seasonals deal with. I would never work for a ski resort as an seasonal person. It is funny watching the seasonal snow carnies have the life drained out of them when it hits them that they will not be able to ski/snowboard much at all. Since I work in the professional area of the resort I can take off during the day to go hit the mountain for the most part or hit the mountain after a storm and come into work latter.
If you go into with the idea of being able to get a lot of snowboarding in you will be depressed and hate it. If you go into with the idea of making some money and getting to meet a lot of new people and snowboard some you might enjoy it. Also in my experience the foreigners are usually really nice and the Americans kids act like a bunch of high school kids that think that there hot shit.
Also do not assume that since the people work at a resort that they all love to ski/snowboard. There are a ton of people that work at resorts that have never ski/snowboarded in their life and hate the winter and will remind you on a constant bases that the winter is the worst time of the year.
