I've been building a webpage for seasonworkers the last couple of weeks. It's more work than I expected so it doesn't have as much info as I wanted yet, but it's worth checking it out already. Check www.mountainseasoners.com for info. I'm adding a lot of usefull information the next couple of weeks. Has got info about working visas etc too

ANd about best places to go to. That totally depends on what you want. Austria is the best on nightlife, France is the best for skiing and Switzerland is the most expensive. There are loads of good resorts in Europe. The difference between Canada and the States is though that they have way less annual snowfall in most places. Kitzbuhel in Austria has about 66 lifts and they are all connected. 200 snowcannons and thus quite snowsecure. Also very great on nightlife. In France Les Trois Valleeys or Espace Killy are sick area's to go to. Unbelievable large and they get loads of snow. Nightlife isn't that good there though. It can be quite difficult to get a working visa. If your not from the European Union you need one for the country you want to work in. Be fast with applying for a working visa. Now is the time for next season!!! In Austria it's still quite easy to do work under the table. Dunno about other countries though. Good luck finding your skiresort
