Despite there still being a hint of summer heat in the air, Ski.com is ready for winter.

For the second year in a row, Ski.com, the largest provider of ski vacations in North America, announced it’s on the hunt for a few extremely dedicated snow bunnies to travel the globe, ski down some of the coolest mountains, and document it all for social media as part of its as part of the dream job. Except this year, they aren’t hiring just one person. They are hiring 12.

“Last fall, for Ski.com’s Epic Dream Job, we received nearly 1,200 video entries and a very passionate community formed online in support of the applicants,” Dan Sherman, Ski.com’s chief marketing officer, shared in a statement. “This year, instead of hiring one person, we are now looking for candidates to fill 12 open positions who will visit six incredible destinations around the word while receiving products and services from an all-star group of partners.”

Want to see what the job really entails? Travel + Leisure tagged along with Sherman and last year’s winner, Jackson Lebsack, through the first few stops of the tour. It included a lot of hard work staying at some of the fanciest hotels in the world, eating lots of cheese, and having too many laughs off-piste in Switzerland, which you can read about here.

The twelve people hired for the job this year will experience one of the following six destinations during the 2020 winter: Aspen Snowmass, Colorado; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Big Sky, Montana; Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta; Chamonix, France; or Niseko, Japan.

In exchange for experiencing the mountains and documenting their journeys each new Ski.com recruit will be compensated with an all-expenses-paid VIP resort experience, flights on United Airlines, gear from Stio, Black Crows, Giro and GoPro, custom forecasts from OpenSnow, a paycheck of $2,000 per person, and the opportunity to save our snow with Protect Our Winters, an organization dedicated to educating outdoors fanatics on climate change.

Think you’ve got what it takes to fill the role? According to Ski.com, the ideal candidates must have a “serious desire to travel to some of the most amazing mountain destinations on the planet, they must be able to ski and/or snowboard at least an advanced-intermediate level and they must love après, mingling with locals and documenting their travel experiences.”

To apply, interested job seekers must choose their ideal destination and submit a 90-second application video between Sept. 17, 2019, and Oct. 29, 2019 explaining why they'd be the perfect fit and what drew them to the destination. And, because there will be two people experiencing each destination, Ski.com encourages applications from individuals or two-person teams.
