Question Where is a good place to work in East Europe ?????

Hey I'm looking to travel to Eastern Europe for the snow season. I'm wanting to work and am just wondering if anyone has done any seasons there and where is a good place to go?

Thanks

Mick

well judging by all the poles, romanians and slovaks in my neighbourhood, London seems to be a good place for work all year round! rent is a bit steep tho!

but seriously, i dunno... the hills are quite low out east and thus the season can be proper short. however, big development suggests money and money suggests snowmaking facilities and so if you are interested to learn of the biggest (most lucrative) place, i would aim for Bansko in Bulgaria.

Bansko ski resort in Bulgaria

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

Talking

I've only been overseas once. That was 10 years ago. I worked at Mammoth Mountain in USA. That was awesome. I've heard Eastern Europe is a good place to work and it's cheap to live there. I'm just wanting to go somewhere that has good snow and plenty of work and it's not too expensive to live. Been working in the same job for 7 years and I need a change lol.

Well the euro zone snow has been kinda peaky lately; snowpack gets plenty deep enuff, but the last few years have had been long warm, sunny periods. so piste gets bullet proof before becoming an avy trap when it finally snows again.

hopefully this year, euro will get a nice constant feed of flake; fek knows we due it!

as far as i know bulgaria offer the bargains; an ex-colleague of mine was supremely chuffed with a week in bansko (pissed up nightly and cost next to nowt for the whole thing) dunno what working in resort would be like; most places are affordable, if you can share accommodation, will clean the bogs if asked and don't expect to take much dosh home with ya afterwards.

but if you can be a board tech or instruct something you might make out good.

good luck tho and make sure to tell us what you do and how you gets on.

Cool

Oh ok, yeah we had a great start to the season here but now it's just melting every day. I was looking at Bansko. I'm happy to do any job. Was looking into snowboard instructor. But anything is fine as long as I get some time to ride :-)

Thanks alot for your help and I will let you know what I do.

i ride in southern spain, yeah they have one mountain :P

Each year theres been less snow but they use arti snow now. My aunt owns a flat in a resort in bulgaria, not sure which one but she doesnt ski or snowboard so i guess its just sitting there. Next year ill ask her if i can get rent it real cheap and just bomb it out with sleeping bags and friends.

Im not 100% sure yet seeing as i will probably be moving up to UK this time next year to go to uni. [Any places in UK???]
